Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) is adding frequencies from Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao to key domestic and international destinations, to accommodate passenger demand during the summer peak travel period.
CEB will begin a daily flight from Manila to Bohol (Tagbilaran), for a total of 28 weekly flights from 1 April 2016.
The airline will also strengthen its Cebu hub with a total of 51 weekly flights between Cebu and Davao starting on 1 May 2016. Throughout the summer season, the airline will also increase frequencies from Cebu to: Bacolod (up to 17 weekly), General Santos City (up to 10 weekly), Kalibo (up to 17 weekly), Puerto Princesa (up to 22 weekly), and Zamboanga (up to 12 weekly).
Those flying between Cebu and Iloilo can choose among 16 weekly flights, with some flights upgraded from ATR 72s to Airbus A320s to increase the number of available seats.
Within the first week of April, CEB also aims to meet robust passenger traffic in Visayas and Mindanao with additional three weekly round-trips between Iloilo and Davao, and two weekly frequencies between Davao and Zamboanga. Four weekly frequencies between Zamboanga and Tawi-Tawi will also be added starting on 1 May.
Meanwhile, passengers heading to Singapore will also have more travel options as CEB adds flights from both Iloilo and Davao to the Lion City. From 30 March, the airline will add one flight a week from Iloilo to Singapore, and another flight per week from Davao to Singapore starting on 2 April. The Iloilo and Davao hubs will then have three weekly flights each to Singapore.
“We hope to encourage our valued guests to cross more destinations off their travel bucket list, with our additional flights this summer. Passengers can maximise their vacation by taking advantage of our lowest year-round fares and widest flight network in the Philippines," remarked J R Mantaring, CEB’s vice-president for corporate affairs.
