Cebu Pacific, low fares across 70 domestic destinations
Leading Philippine low-cost carrier, Cebu Pacific, reduces its year-round low fares across over 70 domestic destinations in support of government initiatives to spur domestic tourism and alleviate the impact of travel restrictions caused by the spread of the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19).
Starting today, Cebu Pacific’s year-round low fares originating from Manila, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro (Laguindingan), Davao, Iloilo and Zamboanga will sell for as low as PHP88 (AUD $2.60).
In addition, Cebu Pacific has also ramped-up capacity across key domestic routes by an average of 44%. The number of seats increased across flights between Manila, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, Iloilo and Bacolod; as well as between Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod and Iloilo.
“We are one with the government and fellow tourism stakeholders during this challenging time. Through this increase in the supply of seats and fare reductions across our domestic route network, we hope to encourage Philippine residents to travel and explore the country,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience of Cebu Pacific.
The Department of Tourism (DOT) has been coordinating with airlines, hotels, resorts and other tourism stakeholders to come up with measures to “arrest and cushion” the slowdown in tourist arrivals due to the risks from COVID-19. These initiatives include airline seat sales and packaged promotional vacations.
The DOT is also launching the first-ever nationwide “Philippine Shopping Festival” to showcase the country as a prime retail destination in terms of unique finds, brand diversity and shopping experience.
“We remain committed to promoting the best of the Philippine festivals across a global audience through our Fiesta Fun Fest campaign, this includes initiatives that magnify the fun travel experiences the country has to offer.”
The reduced fares and additional capacity will be made available across all Cebu Pacific booking channels, including partner travel agencies and the airlines official mobile app.
