CEBU expands airline connection to Visayas region, Philippines

Jul 07, 2016

Cebu Pacific further strengthened its presence in the Eastern and Western Visayas regions with the launch of three more routes.

Starting November 19, 2016, CEB will launch daily flights between Cebu and Ormoc and Cebu and Roxas; and four times weekly (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) between Cebu and Calbayog using ATR 72-500 aircraft.

“Cebu Pacific remains steadfast in providing the best connectivity options for passengers at lowest fare in the market. With the additional routes in and out of Cebu, the Queen City of the South, more guests can travel and visit scenic spots in the Visayas region. We will continue to expand our reach that will cater to our valued guests and boost trade and tourism agendas in the destinations that we operate in”, says Atty. JR Mantaring, CEB Vice President for Corporate Affairs.

CEB holds an introductory Php599 all-in seat sale for these new routes from July 5-7, 2016 or until seats last. The travel period is from November 19, 2016 until March 31, 2017. The lowest all-in year-round fare, one-way for Cebu to Calbayog is Php1927, Cebu to Ormoc is Php 1591 and Cebu to Roxas is Php 1983.

In 2015, over 4.4 million passengers were flown to and from Cebu. Cebu routes cover about 24.5% of CEB’s seat capacity for 2015. With the addition of the three new routes, CEB has now 25 domestic routes in Cebu which will cater to the ever-increasing travel demand.

Aside from Cebu, CEB also operates flights out of five other strategically placed hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo. The airline’s extensive network covers over 90 routes and 64 destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.

CEB’s 57-strong fleet is comprised of 7 Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320, 6 Airbus A330, and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft. Between 2016 and 2021, CEB expects delivery of two more brand-new Airbus A320, 30 Airbus A321neo, and 16 ATR 72-600 aircraft.
