The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) extends the use of bigger aircraft between Taipei and Manila this August and holds a P699 seat sale, to further stimulate traffic between the two cities.
From August 5 to 30, 2014, up to three of CEB's seven weekly Manila-Taipei-Manila flights will utilize a 436-seater Airbus A330 aircraft. CEB will utilize a 180-seater Airbus A320 aircraft for the rest of the week.
The airline previously upgraded the aircraft used for this route from May 2 to July 19, 2014 to accommodate summer traffic.
"We encourage guests to take advantage of the additional seats to Taipei, and book our trademark lowest fares when planning their trips. They can take this opportunity to explore not just Taipei but also other parts of Northern Taiwan," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Iyog cited a trip to Keelung as an example, as this major port city borders New Taipei. Keelung is known as one of the most important sites for the Mid-Summer Ghost Festival ceremonies.
CEB holds a P699 seat sale between Manila and Taipei until July 12, 2014 or until seats last. This is for travel from August 15 to November 30, 2014. After the seat sale, lowest year round fares from Manila to Taipei start at P1,089.
