Cebu Pacific Air Now with Daily Flights Here - CT

Cebu Pacific Airlines has began flying to Virac on a daily basis, just four months after its maiden flight to this island paradise.

The airline began its daily Manila-Virac service starting Monday, June 15, adding three more flights to its previous four-times weekly schedule. It likewise increased its Manila-Naga flights to twice daily – from 10 times weekly – on the same day.

"This is proof of our commitment to make Philippine travel affordable for every Juan. CEB’s trademark low fares have allowed many travelers to travel by air for the first time. The public can expect CEB to continue offering the lowest possible fare in every destination it serves, even if CEB is the only airline serving that route." Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution said.

The airline, which has been providing a viable transport alternative to ferries and buses, will also boost its Cebu-General Santos service with an additional Saturday flight.

Last June 12, the leading domestic airline offered a P111 all-in ‘Go Lite’ fare for all of its domestic services in celebration of 111th anniversary of Philippine independence. The one-day seat sale was available on June 12 only and is valid for travel from November 1 to 30, 2009.  

"We will continue to expand our route network and try to reach more places with our low fares so that we can provide affordable air travel options for more Filipinos," Iyog said, adding that the extra flights will allow the airline to offer more low fares that the traveling public can enjoy and take advantage of.

CEB broke its record number of passengers carried in one month last May 2009 by carrying a total of 865,770 passengers. Prior to this, April 2009 held the record at 823,419 passengers.    

Go Lite’ fares are for passengers traveling with no check-in baggage. Passengers with check-in bags just have to add P200 to the fare. The seat sale is all-inclusive and non-refundable.

For flight bookings and inquiries, passengers may log on to, call reservations at 70-20-888 (Manila) / 230-88-88 (Cebu), or visit their nearest travel agent.

CEB, Asia’s 3rd largest low-cost carrier, flies to 14 cities in Asia and 32 domestic destinations with direct flights from Clark, Cebu, Davao, and Manila.
