Low-cost carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB), said on Thursday that it offers more domestic flights to boost passenger connectivity and access to destinations in the Philippines.
The carrier said that this is in line with the delivery of two Airbus A320 aircraft in July 2013, the 45th and 46th in one of the most modern fleets in the world.
Since August 1, CEB has been operating a total of 33 weekly Manila-Kalibo flights, with additional Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday frequencies. Kalibo is the international gateway to the island paradise of Boracay.
Since August 3, CEB also added more flights on the following routes: Manila-Cebu (daily), Manila-Davao (four weekly flights) and Manila-Legazpi (four weekly flights). All additional flights to these regional centers for trade and tourism will utilize an Airbus A320 aircraft.
On the same date, the airline also added more flights out of its Cebu hub: Cebu-Davao (three weekly flights), Cebu-Duma-guete (two weekly flights) and Cebu-Tacloban (three weekly flights). Its Cebu-Legazpi route became a four times weekly service starting August 3, but will become a five times weekly service starting October 13.
On August 3, CEB also upgraded the aircraft used for its flights from Cebu to General Santos (5J 249/250) from a 156-seater Airbus A319 to a 180-seater Airbus A320. Its Cebu-Butuan flight (5J 223/224) now utilizes an Airbus A319, from a 72-seater ATR aircraft.
CEB operates the most number of flights and routes from its Cebu hub, providing the most options for guests.
Meanwhile, flights to tourism spots such as Siargao, Coron and Bohol will also increased. Siargao is an international surfing hotspot, while Coron is popular for its dive sites and islands. Bohol’s Chocolate Hills and beaches are also a favorite among domestic and foreign tourists.
Starting August 12, CEB will operate a total of five weekly flights between Cebu and Siargao, with an additional weekly frequency.
From August 24 to October 26, there will also be additional thrice weekly frequencies from Manila-Busuanga (Coron) and Manila-Tagbilaran (Bohol). An Airbus A319 aircraft will also be utilized for an additional Tuesday frequency from Manila to Cauayan, Isabela.
