Cebu Pacific (CEB), the country’s single largest domestic airline and
biggest carrier to the ASEAN region offers P1 seats for Cebu-Bacolod,
Cebu-Butuan, Cebu-Cagayan, and Manila-Laoag services.
The seat sale will run from February 28 to April 30, 2008, and is good for
travel for the same period. Fare is non-refundable and exclusive of surcharges
and government taxes.
Candice Iyog, CEB spokesperson said, “We hope that many will realize how
affordable it is to travel by air with our trademark low fares. We encourage bus
and ferry passengers, to avail of this limited opportunity and experience flying
for the first time. “
Iyog explained that the all-in one-way fare, inclusive of taxes and
surcharges, from Cebu to Butuan would cost a little over P960 while a ferry ride
would cost around P660.
Similarly, a one-way Cebu-Cagayan ticket, inclusive of taxes and surcharges,
would cost a little over P1,300 while a boat ride would cost approximately
P1,000. The advantage of taking CEB’s Cebu-Bacolod flight is even more apparent
with its one-way all-in ticket at P1,010 while a fourteen hour ferry ride via
Iloilo would cost P1,400.
She added, “It’s so convenient to take a one-hour Manila-Laoag flight for
P1,010 one-way, inclusive of taxes and surcharges, instead of taking a ten hour
bus ride at P720. We hope many will see the advantages of this proposition.”
She concluded, “This offering is a concrete manifestation of our commitment
to bring air travel closer to as many Filipinos and make each city accessible to
the flying public. We hope that this will encourage more economic activity in
the destinations we operate in, as well.”
