Cebu Pacific to increase operations on its Sydney – Manila service

July 25, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Leading Philippine airline Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) will be increasing flights between Sydney and Manila, on the back of strong demand and commitment to the Australian market. To kick this off, Cebu Pacific is holding a crazy seat sale on its Manila-Sydney route with fares starting from $280 one-way.

Cebu Pacific’s crazy seat sale is on from now until July 28, 2017 or until seats last. Travel periods fall from November 16, 2017 to March 15, 2018, giving savvy travellers the opportunity to jet set to explore the Philippines with its pristine, fine-white sand beaches, colorful marine life, exhilarating waterfalls and white-water rapids and new wonders of the world.

Cebu Pacific currently has the most number of seats between Manila and Sydney, operating up to five weekly nonstop services between Sydney and Manila. Data revealed from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) indicated that during first quarter 2017, Cebu Pacific dominated the Sydney – Manila market, representing a 42% market share on the route – the highest among the three carriers covering this route.

On the back of this strong demand, Cebu Pacific will be increasing its flight frequency from December 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018, where smart travellers will be able to utilise the summer break to escape to the exotic islands Philippines, many of which rival the likes of Bali and Phuket. Condé Nast Traveler has named the Philippine islands of Boracay, Palawan and Cebu among the world’s best.

“Cebu Pacific continues to soar high for both passenger and cargo traffic on its Sydney – Manila service. The additional frequency between the destinations reflects our commitment to reinforce the Cebu Pacific effect across one of our strongest international markets. We want to continue to offer our year-round low-fares that are affordable, accessible and available to a greater number of travellers,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Distribution of Cebu Pacific.

Cebu Pacific’s added frequencies mean that cargo capacity will benefit the additional services with increased flexibility. Exporters can take advantage from Cebu Pacific’s extensive flight network from its hub in Manila to onward domestic and international destinations.

“The increased cargo capacity will benefit exporters and businesses who transfer products between Australia and the Philippines, as well as to onward destinations including Japan, China, Korea, the rest of Southeast Asia and Dubai.”
