The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) pushes for even more Chinese and Taiwanese tourists to visit the Philippines with a China, Taiwan and Visayas seat sale from April 19 to 22, 2012 or until seats last. This is for travel from June 1 to August 31, 2012.
Passengers can buy P1,288 seats from Guangzhou, Taipei or Xiamen to Manila, as well as P2,488 seats from Beijing and Shanghai to Manila or vice versa.
From Manila, passengers may connect to select Visayas destinations and book P488 seats to Bacolod, Caticlan (Boracay), Cebu, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Kalibo, Roxas, Tacloban or Tagbilaran.
From Cebu, passengers may also buy seats as low as P88 and P288 to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Clark, Davao, Dipolog, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Ozamiz, Pagadian, Surigao, Tacloban or Zamboanga. P488 seats are available from Cebu to Caticlan (Boracay).
“Passengers can take advantage of CEB’s unbeatable flight network within the Philippines through this seat sale. We also offer flights to and from Manila and all the major coastal cities in mainland China, providing easy access to the top tourist destinations in the Philippines,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Both Caticlan and Kalibo are gateways to the world-renowned Boracay Island, named the world’s 4th best island in the 2011 Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards. The survey conducted by Travel + Leisure Magazine evaluated the islands according to their natural attractions, activities, sights, restaurants and food, people, and value for money. CEB recently launched direct Hong Kong – Kalibo flights last March 23, 2012.
Meanwhile, Cebu, Bacolod, Iloilo and Tagbilaran (Bohol) are gateways to cultural sites and diving and snorkeling sites. This includes the Miagao Church in Iloilo, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, festivals in Bacolod, thresher sharks in Malapascua Island in Cebu, and dolphins in Pamilacan in Bohol.
“Similarly, more passengers from the Philippines now have the best low-cost opportunity to visit the Great Wall of China via Beijing, or shop in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Taipei. Businessmen can also maximize their business trips, with CEB’s thrice weekly flights and seat sale fares to Xiamen,” Iyog added.
