CEB highlights inter-island flights from Bacolod

Lowest possible fares begin at P988

The Philippines’ leading carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) underscores inter-island flights from Bacolod as the most convenient way to travel around the Philippines.

CEB currently operates a five times daily Airbus service from Bacolod to Manila, and a daily ATR 72-500 service from Bacolod to Cebu, giving passengers from Bacolod a lot of air travel options.

The lowest possible year-round ‘Go Lite’ fare for the Bacolod-Manila route is P1,088. For those going from Bacolod to Cebu, it’s P988. Passengers with check-in luggage will just add P100 upon booking.

“CEB is a great airline for business and leisure travelers due to its convenient same day returns. Our Bacolod-Manila flights, for example, begin at 6:30am and the last return flight is at 6:45pm (except Mondays),” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

“We also encourage bus and ferry passengers to try an airline alternative for their travel needs since CEB can get them to their destinations faster at comparable fares. Passengers can book early to avail of our low fares, and are advised to check-in at the airport early during peak travel periods,” she added.

Passengers can call CEB reservations hotlines (02)7020-888 or (032) 230-8888, check or visit nearest travel agents. Those without credit cards can still book online and pay via CEB partner banks (Bancnet, Megalink, Metrobank, Robinsons Savings Bank and Banco de Oro).

Gokongwei-owned CEB flies to 32 domestic and 14 international destinations, using one of the youngest fleets of aircraft in Asia. Since its inception in 1996, it has flown over 36 million passengers, making it the third largest low-cost carrier in Asia.
