Cebu Pacific (CEB) now flies to Virac Catanduanes on a daily basis. The airline began its daily Manila-Virac service a week ago, adding three more flights to its previous four-times weekly schedule. It likewise increased its Manila-Naga flights to twice daily – from 10 times weekly.
“This is proof of our commitment to make Philippine travel affordable for everyone. CEB’s trademark low fares have allowed many travelers to travel by air for the first time. The public can expect CEB to continue offering the lowest possible fare in every destination it serves, even if CEB is the only airline serving that route.” Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, said.
The airline, which has been providing a viable transport alternative to ferries and buses, will also boost its Cebu-General Santos service with an additional Saturday flight.
Last June 12, the leading domestic airline offered a P111 all-in “Go Lite” fare for all of its domestic services in celebration of the 111th anniversary of Philippine independence. The one-day seat sale was available on June 12 only and is valid for travel from November 1 to 30, 2009.
“We will continue to expand our route network and try to reach more places with our low fares so that we can provide affordable air travel options for more Filipinos,” Iyog said, adding that the extra flights will allow the airline to offer more low fares that the traveling public can enjoy and take advantage of.
CEB broke its record number of passengers carried in one month last May by carrying 865,770 passengers. Prior to this, April 2009 held the record at 823,419 passengers.
“Go Lite” fares are for passengers traveling with no check-in baggage. Passengers with check-in bags just have to add P200 to the fare. The seat sale is all-inclusive and non-refundable.
CEB, Asia’s 3rd largest low-cost carrier, flies to 14 cities in Asia and 32 domestic destinations with direct flights from Clark, Cebu, Davao, and Manila.
