Low-fare airline Cebu Pacific (CEB) inaugurates its daily direct flights from
Manila to Naga City today.
Using CEB’s brand new ATR 72-500 aircraft, the daily service departs from
Manila at 1:15pm and arrives in Naga at 2:10pm. The return flight to Manila
departs at 2:30pm and arrives at 3:25pm.
The lowest year-round ‘all-inclusive fare’ for the Manila-Naga service starts
at P988 one-way.
Naga is CEB’s 23rd domestic destination after it recently started its
Manila-Tuguegarao service last week. The airline will also start flying to San
Jose (Mindoro) next week.
Candice Iyog, CEB spokesperson said, “The opening of our direct Manila-Naga
daily service will increase the accessibility of Camarines Sur to both business
and leisure travelers of varied economic backgrounds. This will also attract
more local and foreign tourists to experience the world-class water sports
facility in Naga.”
She added, “As we continue to offer the lowest year
round ‘all inclusive fare’ to Naga, air travel is now an affordable option to
passengers from Camarines Sur. Our ‘all inclusive fares’ is very comparable to
and competitive with bus fares that cost P700.”
Iyog concluded, “Other airlines that used to monopolize this route have also
reduced their fares since we announced our entry. So this benefits not only our
passengers but also those traveling with our competitors too.”
