CEB offers absolutely FREE domestic seats; Free fare and ZERO surcharges for international flights

JG Summit Holdings Inc. airline business unit, Cebu Pacific (CEB), gives an ultimate Christmas present to all of its passengers traveling with no check-in bags (‘Go Lite’) as it offers absolutely free domestic seats while passengers booking international flights will only have to pay for applicable government taxes.

The seat sale will run from December 25 to 26 or until seats are sold out. This is valid for travel from February 1 to March 18, 2009. The airline has allocated more than 100,000 seats as their Christmas offering for all its loyal patrons.

‘Go Lite’ fares are for passengers traveling with no check-in baggage. Passengers with check-in bags just have to add P200.

Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, said, “CEB is giving out these absolutely free seats to thank every Juan for their continued support in 2008 and as a proof of CEB’s commitment to offer more low fares in the coming 2009, as we continue to operate more routes and add flights, as we take delivery of brand new aircraft.”

Iyog added, “This is also the first time we are offering international seats at zero fuel and insurance surcharge.”

“We encourage everyone to act fast and book their ‘free’ seats online. This promotion is only available via or through travel agents using the Amadeus global distribution system.”

CEB is the country’s largest domestic carrier with flights to 27, soon to be 32 domestic and 15 international destinations. The airline has operational hubs in Manila, Cebu, Davao, and Clark.

Now in its 13th year, CEB has the youngest fleet in the Philippines and one of the youngest in Asia, composed of 10 Airbus A319, nine Airbus A320, and six ATR 72-500 aircraft.
