Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Cebu Pacific is to increase flight frequencies and seat capacity on select international flights this January 2012. The airline will take delivery of 4 more brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft from October 2011 to January 2012, allowing the airline to enhance its flight schedule options for travellers.

The airline will increase flight frequencies in the following routes:

Effective 7 January 2012

Manila-Brunei-Manila (from 3 to 4 weekly flights)
Manila-Singapore-Manila (from 32 to 35 weekly flights)
Manila-Beijing-Manila (from 3 to 4 weekly flights)
Additional Seats (from Airbus A319 to Airbus A320)
Manila-Ho Chi Minh-Manila (daily)

Effective 8 January 2012

Additional Seats (from Airbus A319 to Airbus A320)
Manila-Bangkok-Manila (10 weekly flights)

The airline will also operate an additional four weekly flights from Manila to Kuala Lumpur and vice versa, making it double-daily starting 8 January 2012.

CEB already offers the most number of flights between the Philippines and Singapore, with direct flights from Manila, Cebu and Clark. We recognize Singapore as a high-traffic route for leisure and business, so we are adding more flights to meet the demand, said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and distribution. We are also the only low-cost carrier operating direct flights from the Philippines to Brunei and Beijing. Our trademark low fares have allowed many overseas Filipino workers and tourists from Beijing to travel to the Philippines and vice versa. These additional flights and CEBs seat sales will continue to boost tourism and trade between our countries.

Cebu Pacific currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 16 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. Between 2012 and 2021, the airline will take delivery of 23 Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders, and 2 Airbus A320 aircraft on operating lease agreements.
