THE Philippines' largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific, signed six-year operating lease agreements with Dublin-based RBS Aviation Capital for 2 brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft to be delivered in March 2012. This will be on top of CEB's 27 Airbus A320 aircraft purchase orders to be delivered from September 2011 until 2016, and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders to be delivered from 2017-2021.
CEB recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus for the purchase of the 30 A321neo aircraft, the largest A321neo aircraft order in the world. The A321neos will be a first of its type to operate in the Philippines, being a larger and longer-haul version of the familiar Airbus A320.
THE 12 lovely ladies vying for the coveted title of Miss Kagay-an 2011 were finally presented last Monday at the Malasag Mountain Resort in barangay Cugman, Cagayan de Oro City.
The 12 candidates were handpicked from the 35 that joined the search before they were trimmed down.
According to search committee chair and Iponan barangay chair Anthony Brilleta, the search started from in early January this year and will culminate with the crowning of the new Miss Kagay-an in August during the city fiesta.
The absence of Department of Tourism (DOT) 10 director Catalino Chan was felt as he was the usual fixture of the annual pageant search. Chan suffered from a non-life threatening medical condition and cannot join the event this year.
Brilleta added that they are excited for the coming pageantry. Brilleta also gave much adoration to the mentors of the candidates as they will mold their wards en route for the crown.
MISAMIS Oriental Gov. Oscar Moreno yesterday revealed that he is considering on running for mayor of Cagayan de Oro in 2013.
Moreno announced this during a news conference following the launch of the Mt. Balatukan Range Convergence Agro-Enterprise Zone at the capitol. "I say that now that I am considering on running [for Cagayan de Oro mayor]," said Moreno. He called Cagayan de Oro Mayor Vicente Emano "the problem" in the city, Misamis Oriental and Northern Mindanao.

Moreno said Emano has not performed the way a mayor should since he (Emano) dominated Cagayan de Oro politics in 1998.
"He (Emano) is threatened because we deliver results. We constructed classrooms at Mogchs (Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive HighSchool) and that is something he failed to do even when he was governor of the province," said Moreno.
Because of that, according to Moreno, Emano's allies in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan led by provincial board member Jesus Jardin have launched a smear campaign against him. "They're attacking me for building classrooms," Moreno said.
