Budget carrier Cebu Pacific achieved a 51-percent market share in the domestic cargo from market during the first quarter of this year, according to recently released Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) data.
“We are very thankful for the support of cargo forwarders and shippers as we bring their cargo to various Philippine destinations in the soonest possible time,” said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution.
The budget airline carried 23 million kilograms in cargo in the first quarter of 2013, besting the combined cargo load of 17.5 million kilos carried by both the Philippine Airlines and PAL Express.
The airline attributes this sustained accomplishment to its extensive and expanding Philippine network, multiple daily flight schedules and competitive rates. Cebu Pacific Cargo has been the leader in domestic cargo services since 2009.
Currently, Cebu Pacific cargo serves more than 2,000 accounts, customizing cargo products based on the clients’ domestic and international cargo needs.
“Our 24-hour airport-to-airport cargo service also accepts shipments to and from key international destinations, through 16 interline global partners for seamless transshipments,” Iyog said.
