CEB announces extra flights for December

The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB) increases its December flights to chosen destinations, in anticipation of the peak travel season.

CEB adds an additional daily frequency to its Manila-Hong Kong route, giving passengers an option between five daily flights. CEB’s Manila-Singapore route also gets a boost with an additional daily flight, making it a four times daily service.

Manila-Ho Chi Minh and Clark-Bangkok also get a new six times weekly frequency, while Clark-Hong Kong and Clark-Singapore flights are now daily.

For domestic routes, the airline also added flights for the following routes: flights from Manila to Roxas, Iloilo, Kalibo, Ozamiz and Virac, and from Cebu to Iloilo, Surigao and Zamboanga. Those who wish to go to Manila or Cebu can also take Cebu-Clark flights for more available seats.

“We wanted to widen the availability of seats for our passengers because there are a lot of people who travel during Christmas break. Our Kalibo (Boracay) flights, for example, still have available seats from December 26-30, 2009, especially after we increased our Manila-Kalibo frequency to 8-10 flights per day,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

“We encourage our CEB passengers to arrive at the airport early during peak travel period. It is also advised to book in advance to take advantage of our trademark low fares,” she added.

Passengers can call (02)7020-888 or (032)230-8888, visit CEB ticketing offices and accredited travel agencies or check out the website for their booking needs. Those without credit cards can now book online and pay via CEB partner banks (Megalink, Bancnet, Banco de Oro, Metrobank and Robinsons Savings Bank).

CEB, Asia’s third-largest low-cost carrier, flies to 32 domestic and 14 international destinations using one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the country. It has the most extensive domestic network in the Philippines and offers the lowest year-round fares.
