Mother’s letter prods Gokongwei to launch Cebu Pacific’s CDO-Dumaguete route
It’s always family first for this bilyonaryo clan.
Netizen Apple Uy remembers Oct. 20 of each year with fondness.
She will never forget what budget carrier Cebu Pacific has done for her family.
In a Facebook post, Uy hailed the compassion of the airline’s CEO Lance Gokongwei for granting her request.
She recalled writing a letter, requesting Cebu Pacific to mount regular flights to Dumaguete from Cagayan de Oro.
The letter, which found its way to the office of Gokongwei “conveyed a parent’s longing to be able to check on her child who is studying in Dumaguete,” Uy said.
Uy’s request did not fall on deaf ears. Five months later, the budget airline introduced a thrice weekly flight service on the CDO-Dumaguete route.
“I will post my heartfelt thank yous every Oct20th of each year. You have made such an impact in every Juan’s life,” she said.
