No more fuel & insurance surcharge for Cebu Pacific domestic flights

​First Philippine carrier to remove surcharges

Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ leading low-fare airline, removes fuel and insurance surcharges for all domestic flight bookings starting January 7, 2009.

Candice Iyog, CEB spokesman, said, “We are committed to offering the public the most affordable fares coupled with the newest planes. In fact, we have made air travel a viable option for those who would normally travel by bus or ferry. We will continue to give EveryJuan more reasons to fly as we expect to take delivery of six brand new aircraft in 2009.”

Iyog explained that the removal of fuel and insurance surcharges will now allow passengers to easily compare airfare with the fares of buses and ferries.

The airline also cuts its fuel and insurance surcharge for select international routes. CEB’s Manila-Bangkok and Clark-Bangkok one-way surcharges are slashed from USD80 to USD50 and USD80 to USD60, respectively.

Moreover, CEB’s Manila-Osaka one-way surcharges are lowered from USD110 to USD100 and Manila-Hong Kong surcharges are reduced from USD45 to USD40 per way.

Iyog concluded, “We encourage everyone to book their flights via www.cebupacificair.com , call the reservations hotline (632) 70-20-888, or visit their nearest travel agents.”

CEB has the most number of inter-island routes and connections from its hubs in Clark, Manila, Cebu and Davao. It will fly to 28 domestic destination and 15 international cities.
