MANILA, Philippines — To boost its presence in Eastern and Western Visayas, low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific on Tuesday will be rolling out three more routes in the region starting Nov. 19.
Flights include daily flights between Cebu and Ormoc, Leyte and Cebu and Roxas City; and four times weekly (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) between Cebu and Calbayog City using ATR 72-500 aircraft.
Along with the launch of new routes, the airline will be holding an introductory P599 all-in seat sale for these new routes from July 5 to 7, 2016 or until seats last. The travel period is from Nov. 19, 2016 until March 31, 2017.
The lowest all-in year-round fare, one-way for Cebu to Calbayog is P1,927, Cebu to Ormoc is P1,591 and Cebu to Roxas is P1,983.
In 2015, over 4.4 million passengers were flown to and from Cebu. Cebu routes covered about 24.5 percent of CEB’s seat capacity for 2015.
CEB Vice President for Corporate Affairs JR Mantaring said that with the additional routes in and out of Cebu, more guests could travel and visit scenic spots in the Visayas region.
“We will continue to expand our reach that will cater to our valued guests and boost trade and tourism agendas in the destinations that we operate in,” Mantaring said.
With the addition of the three new routes, CEB has now 25 domestic routes in Cebu which will cater to the ever-increasing travel demand.
Aside from Cebu, CEB also operates flights out of five other strategically placed hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo.
The airline’s extensive network covers over 90 routes and 64 destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.
