MANILA — Cebu Pacific has launched two international routes in line with its continuing commitment to boost the Philippine tourism industry.
The Gokongwei-led airline firm on Thursday started flying from Kalibo to Hong Kong and Manila to Xiamen, China.
“We are proud to offer these convenient linkages for Chinese and Hong Kong tourists to the Philippines, allowing them the fastest access to Boracay and Manila on the lowest fares. The Philippines is truly more accessible now to more foreign travelers of varied economic backgrounds, because of a very extensive network that only Cebu Pacific can offer,” Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for Marketing and Distribution, said.
Both routes are thrice weekly services, using CEB’s largest and youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines.
CEB also flies to Manila daily from Shanghai, thrice weekly from Guangzhou, and four times weekly from Beijing. It also operates six times daily flights from Hong Kong to Cebu, Clark and Manila, as well as daily flights from Macau to Manila and up to four times weekly flights from Macau to Clark.
The airline provides access to the most extensive network in the Philippines, with 33 domestic and 19 international destinations.
CEB currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320 and eight ATR-72 500 aircraft. Its fleet of 38 aircraft – with an average age of 3.6 years – is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world.
Between 2012 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 22 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders, and one Airbus A320 aircraft on operating lease agreement. (PNA)
