From four-times to eight-times daily
Cebu Pacific (CEB), the airline business unit of JG Summit Holdings Inc., will double its capacity for its Manila-Boracay (Caticlan) service by adding four daily flights starting December 10, 2008.
The airline will use its fifth brand new ATR 72-500 aircraft for the added frequencies, bringing CEB’s daily frequency to Boracay up to eight-times.
The lowest all-inclusive ‘Go lite’ fare to Boracay (Caticlan) starts at P1,188. Passengers with bags will just add P200.
Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, said, “Boracay continues to be the Philippines’ single largest tourist destination and we want to make sure that there are enough ‘low fare’ seats to Boracay so we can draw both local and foreign tourists to this world class destination.”
CEB has carried over 100,000 passengers to and from Boracay since it started flying to this destination in late February 2008.
“The additional frequencies come just in time for the Christmas holidays where we anticipate increased traffic to Boracay,” Iyog added.
CEB also increased its capacity for its Manila-Kalibo service by 48%. The additional frequency departs from Manila at 5:30pm and lands in Kalibo at 6:45pm. The return flight leaves Kalibo at 7:05pm and arrives in Manila at 8:20pm.
Passengers may now book their flights through www.cebupacificair.com , or through its reservations hotline (632) 70-20-888, or visit CEB sales offices and accredited travel agents.
Now in its 13th year, CEB has the youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. It will fly to 27 domestic destinations with the addition of Ozamiz and Surigao next month, and 15 international destinations with the addition of Osaka, Japan on November 20.
