The Philippines' leading low-cost carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) partners with the Philippine Department of Tourism (Tourism Promotions Board) in its Bangon Tours initiative, and holds a 75% off seat sale on all its destinations for summer travel.

 

Up for grabs until January 16, 2014, the 75% off seat sale is available on all of CEB's 24 international and 33 domestic destinations.

We encourage everyJuan to take advantage of CEB's trademark lowest fares to explore Bangon Tours' featured destinations, especially this summer," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

 

Iyog added that Filipino expats and foreign tourists can also book the 75% off seat sale fares to visit the Philippines. CEB even holds a special AED99 seat sale for those coming from Dubai to Manila, for the same seat sale and travel periods.
