CEB on-time performance hits 90%

Asia’s third largest low-cost carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB), hit a 90.1% high when it comes to its on-time performance (OTP) last month.

The CEB August 2009 OTP statistic progressed better than several Asia Pacific low-cost carriers. CEB also fared well on its on-time performance for July with 86.7%.

These figures are based on CEB’s on-the-dot departures and departures within 15 minutes of the scheduled departure time. According to industry standards, a flight is considered to have departed from the designated bay no more than 15 minutes from the scheduled departure time.

Available online data shows that the average July 2009 OTP for North American carriers is at 77.6%, with the highest OTP registering at 93.6% for Hawaiian Airlines (

CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog said, “It is a company-wide goal for Cebu Pacific to continue providing world-class on-time performance. We continue to look for ways to further improve our OTP. This way, our flights become even more convenient for passengers taking direct and connecting flights.”

Leading domestic airline, CEB, currently has 1,600 domestic and 400 international flights every week. This includes flights from Clark to Bangkok, Macau, Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as direct flights from Cebu to 20 domestic destinations.

Passengers can book their flights via or reservations hotlines (02) 7020-888 or (032) 230-8888, and pay through CEB ticketing offices, online, or via ATM or over the counter in partner banks. For more information, check the website.
