Cebu Pacific flew over 683,000 international and more than 2,428,000 domestic passengers in Q2 2011, compared to more than 2.7 million passengers in the 2nd quarter of 2010. These Q2 figures keep the airline on track in achieving its 12 million-passenger target in 2011.

CEB posted strong growth figures in the 2nd quarter of 2011, given its trademark lowest fares, extensive route network and innovative travel services. April and May are seasonally the strongest in domestic travel, and we will remain consistent in growing the market so everyone gets the chance to fly, said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog. We will continue to expand internationally, consistent with our goal to bring more tourists to and from the Philippines. CEBs international passengers increased in the 2nd quarter, owing to our increased flight frequencies and direct flights from international destinations to Manila, Cebu and Clark.

Passengers to and from Singapore increased by 22% year-on-year. Meanwhile, passengers to and from North Asia grew by 13%, led by Taiwan (up by 66%), South Korea (up by 42%) and China (up by 38%).

As we accept delivery of more brand-new aircraft orders in the last week of September and October 2011, we will continue offering the lowest fares to all the destinations we serve. CEB is slated to begin its Tawi-Tawi to Zamboanga flights, as well as its Cagayan de Oro-Iloilo service on October 14, further expanding CEBs network in the Philippines, Iyog added.

CEB currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 15 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. By the end of 2011, CEB will be operating a fleet of 37 aircraft with an average age of less than 3.5 years.
