CEB slashes fares to Japan with seat sale as low as PHP99

 

The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) promotes travel between Japan and the Philippines with a seat sale as low as PHP99, from January 22 to 24, 2014 or until seats last.

 

The airline recently increased seat capacity between Japan and the Philippines by 500%, with the slated launch of direct flights between Manila and Tokyo (Narita), as well as Manila and Nagoya on March 30, 2014. CEB's Manila-Osaka-Manila service also went from thrice weekly to daily last December 20, 2013.

 

Throughout the seat sale period, passengers can buy PHP99 seats between Manila and Osaka, for travel from March 15 to June 30, 2014.

 

Seats on Manila-Nagoya flights are also up for grabs for PHP99, while passengers can book Manila-Tokyo (Narita) seats for PHP3,888. Travel period for promo seats on these new routes is from March 30 to September 30, 2014.

 

Passengers can also take advantage of an ongoing select domestic seat sale, for travel from March 1 to June 30, 2014, to fly from Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Bacolod, among others, to Japan via Manila.

 

"Cebu Pacific started operating a thrice weekly Manila-Osaka service in 2008. This year, we will fly to Japan 18 times weekly, and offer fares that are up to 60% lower than other airlines. Savings can be even lower with seat sale fares," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

 

After the seat sale, lowest year-round fares to Osaka start at PHP3,999, while fares to Nagoya and Tokyo (Narita) start at PHP5,499.

 

"Japan has a significant tourist market that we can grow. In line with the Philippines' tourism agenda, we look forward to boosting leisure and business travel between our two countries," she added.
