Cebu Pacific expands domestic services in leisure markets

Adds flights to Boracay, Busuanga, and Davao-Zamboanga

Cebu Pacific (CEB), will mount additional frequencies to Boracay (Caticlan), Busuanga (Coron, Palawan), and for its Davao-Zamboanga service in anticipation of strong demand in the summer season.

Starting March 25, CEB will increase its Manila-Boracay (Caticlan) service to 77-times weekly from 56-times weekly. The airline also ups its Cebu-Caticlan frequency to twice daily from once daily.

CEB will also add three flights to its Manila-Busuanga service, making it a twice daily service.  It will also increase the frequency of its Davao-Zamboanga service to daily from four-times weekly.

The airline will use its eighth ATR 72-500 aircraft to mount these additional flights in time for the summer peak.

This brings CEB’s weekly domestic flights to 1,206 from 1,152.

“We hope to continue stimulating air travel in these leisure destinations,” Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, said.

“Aside from the increased frequencies, CEB will still offer its low fares and brand new aircraft to its passengers. We hope that this will draw more local and foreign tourists to these areas,” Iyog added.

The lowest year round ‘Go Lite’ fare to Boracay (Caticlan) starts P1,188 all-in while its Manila-Busuanga fares starts from P788 all-in. Davao-Zamboanga all-in ‘Go Lite’ fare starts from P1,348.

Iyog concluded, “We encourage travelers to book their flights early through CEB’s website, www.cebupacificair.com , or through their nearest travel agent.”

Now in its 13th year, CEB has the youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. It flies to 15 international cities and 29, soon to be 31 domestic destinations with the addition of Calbayog on Wednesday, Ferbruay 18, and Siargao on March 4.
