Cebu Pacific is to strengthen its presence in
the Eastern and Western Visayas regions of Philippines with the
launch of three new routes.
Starting 19 November 2016, Cebu
Pacific will launch daily flights between Cebu and Ormoc and Cebu
and Roxas; and four flights per week - on Tuesdays, Thursdays,
Saturdays and Sundays - between Cebu and Calbayog using ATR 72-500
“Cebu Pacific remains steadfast in providing the
best connectivity options for passengers at lowest fare in the
market,” said Atty. JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Corporate Affairs.
“With the additional routes in and out of Cebu, the Queen
City of the South, more guests can 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.”
In 2015, over 4.4 million passengers were flown to and
from Cebu. Cebu routes cover about 24.5% of CEB’s seat capacity
for 2015. With the addition of the three new routes, Cebu
Pacific now has 25 domestic routes in Cebu which will cater to the
ever-increasing travel demand.
Aside from Cebu, Cebu
Pacific also operates flights out of five other strategically
placed hubs in Philippines: Manila, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and
Cebu Pacific’s fleet is currently made up of 7 Airbus
A319, 36 Airbus A320, 6 Airbus A330, and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft.
Between 2016 and 2021, Cebu Pacific expects delivery of two more
brand-new Airbus A320, 30 Airbus A321neo, and 16 ATR 72-600
