CEB Manila-Kuala Lumpur service now daily

Offers Malaysia seat sale for as low as P499

Cebu Pacific (CEB), the leading low cost carrier with the most ASEAN destinations from the Philippines, will start flying a daily service to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia starting September 16, 2009.

In line with this, the airline is offering a seat sale to Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for P499 and P1,999 respectively.

The ‘Go Lite’ promo fares are exclusive of the Philippine travel tax. Those with checked-in luggage only have to add P200 when booking.

Sale period is from July 29 to July 31, 2009, and is good for travel from September 1 to November 30, 2009.

“Malaysia has always enjoyed a great demand from our Filipino travel market, and we are glad to reduce our trademark low fares to make it even more accessible to every Juan. Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur are also home to our overseas Filipino workers. We hope they take advantage of our seat sale to spend more time at home,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and distribution.

Tourism Malaysia-Manila Director Masrina Mohd Bakri said, “We are very pleased that more Filipinos will be able to experience the wonders of Malaysia, with Cebu Pacific now offering daily flights to Kuala Lumpur and its very low fares to Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu.”

“We invite Filipinos to immerse themselves in the exciting theme parks and amazing shopping bargains in KL, and the eco-adventures of the resort-city of Kota Kinabalu,” she added.

Passengers are encouraged to book their flights through or through reservations hotlines (02) 7020-888 or (032) 230-8888.

CEB, Asia’s third largest low-cost carrier, started flying to Kuala Lumpur in 2006 and Kota Kinabalu in 2008. The airline also flies to 12 other Asian cities and 32 domestic destinations from four hubs, utilizing the youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines.
