Cebu Pacific (CEB) has announced that it will add one flight each to its Manila-Tacloban, Tagbilaran and Cagayan de Oro routes to meet the increasing demand of passengers availing of the airline’s ‘Go’ fares.
Starting August 17, 2006, CEB’s service will rise from 14 to 21 flights weekly for Manila-Tacloban and Cagayan de Oro, while Manila-Tagbilaran will increase from 7 to 14 flights weekly.
This comes after the airline introduced its reduced ‘Go’ fares last June 2, 2006, where the lowest ‘Go’ fares were brought down by as much as 43%. Lowest ‘Go’ fares start at P568 for Manila-Tacloban and Tagbilaran and P868 for Manila-Cagayan de Oro. The ‘Go’ fares are exclusive of surcharges and government taxes.
“Since the introduction of our ‘Go’ fares, we have seen the steady growth in our passenger numbers not only during peak but even more so during the lean season. This is evident with our 41% market share for the month of June. With the additional daily frequency to Cagayan de Oro, Tacloban and Tagbilaran we will be able to offer more seats at the lowest fares which also means further stimulation of travel for these destinations.” Candice Iyog, CEB marketing director said
“We really believe that it’s time every Juan flies. We also encourage travelers to book early to enjoy the lowest fares available,” Iyog added.
Now in its 11th year, CEB pioneered the lowest fares in the country in March 1996. It also introduced travelers to on-time service, e-ticketing and on-line booking, setting the standards for the airline innovation in the local aviation industry.
