Cebu Pacific (CEB) the country’s low fare pioneer has reduced its lowest ‘Go’ fares by as much as 43% starting Friday, June 2. The lowest ‘Go’ fare to any Visayas destination is now P568 one-way, while the lowest ‘Go’ fare to any Mindanao destination is P868 one-way.
CEB ‘Go’ fares are permanent – not promotional – low fares available for travel and booking all year-round and exclusive of regular surcharges and government tax.
“It’s all about making travel more affordable so that more Filipinos can fly. We are taking delivery of our 7th and 8th brand new Airbus aircraft this week and we are more than halfway through with our re-fleeting program. By August, CEB will have an all Airbus fleet and the youngest fleet in the Philippines. We will have increased our capacity by more than 40%. This means that we will have more seats to offer at even lower fares,” said Lance Gokongwei, CEB president and CEO.
CEB now operates 2 brand new Airbus A320 and 4 A319 aircraft. This week the airline expects delivery of 2 more A319 while 4 more Airbus A319 will arrive in the next 4 months. The last 2 A320 aircraft will be delivered in early 2007 when CEB shall have completed its re-fleeting program.
“These reduced ‘Go’ fares will be available year-round but we advise people to book early for best availability. Manila to Cebu or to any other Visayas destination is now only P568 one-way, reduced from P888 or by 36%, Manila to Davao or to any Mindanao destination is now only P868 one-way, reduced from P1,250 or by more than 30%. Cebu to Davao or any inter-island sector is now only P568 one-way, reduced from P998 or by 43%. With fares this low, it’s time everyone flies,” he added.
Gokongwei also emphasized that the easiest way to grab the lowest ‘Go’ fare is through their website www.cebupacificair.com and since the ‘Go’ fares are available year round, it is always advisable to book early in order to pay less.
Now on its 11th year, CEB pioneered low 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 airline innovation in the local aviation industry.
