CEB begins double daily flights to General Santos

The Philippines’ leading airline Cebu Pacific (CEB) started twice daily flights last October 25 to offer more alternatives to travelers in the South Cotabato area.

This new frequency gives passengers a choice between morning flights that leave General Santos every 9:20am and leaves Manila every 7:00am, and afternoon flights that depart General Santos at 2:50pm and departs Manila at 12:30pm.

CEB also flies from General Santos to Cebu every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

The lowest possible year-round ‘Go Lite’ fare for the General Santos-Manila route is P1,988. For the General Santos-Cebu route, it’s P1,188. Passengers with check-in luggage will just add P100 upon booking.

“Cebu Pacific offers the most routes and destinations in the Philippines. By increasing the frequencies of our General Santos flights, we hope to stimulate the market in the SOCCSKSARGEN region, especially with our trademark low fares. Hopefully, the tourism and economy of General Santos and surrounding areas can be boosted with our new twice daily flights,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution.

“Passengers who wish to book online but don’t have credit cards may still do so and pay through our partner banks via ATM or over-the-counter transactions. We encourage our passengers to book early so they can get the lowest possible fares for their desired CEB flights,” she added.

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.
