Cebu Pacific ranks 4th in Asia’s top 10 budget airline list

Cebu Pacific (CEB) now ranks 4th among Asia’s top low-cost carriers.

This was stated by Smart Travel Asia’s Top 10 Budget Airlines of 2009 poll.

SmartTravelAsia.com, Asia’s leading online travel magazine with one million readers worldwide, revealed the results of their May to July 2009 Best in Travel survey recently.

Low cost carriers were rated based on ticket prices, schedule reliability, quality of service, route network and access.

Smart Travel Asia also polled their readers in top destinations, hotels and resorts.

“We are happy that the website’s worldwide audience appreciated CEB’s great value fares and flights and voted.

Our growth and expansion in the Asian and domestic markets are very exciting, and we are glad that people have noticed,” said CEB Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and distribution.

“This year, we started flying to 11 new routes. We also expect delivery of two ATR-7200 aircraft by the end of the year, which will surely provide our passengers with convenient air travel, low fares, and more flights, frequencies and destinations,” she said.

In 2009, CEB began services from Manila to Catarman, Virac, Cauayan, Calbayog and Ozamiz; from Cebu to Cotabato, Legazpi, Dumaguete, Siargao and Roxas; and from Davao to Cagayan de Oro. Read the full story
