A wholly-owned subsidiary of Cebu Pacific said it is launching two more routes by middle of February.
Cebgo Inc. said it would launch daily flights between Manila and Masbate, and four times weekly between Manila and Tablas using the newly-acquired ATR 72-600 aircraft.
“We remain firm in bringing people together through safe, affordable, reliable, and fun-filled air travel,” Cebgo president and chief executive Alexander Lao said.
“With these additional routes, travelers will now be able to visit these destinations faster while enjoying CEB’s trademark low fares. Rest assured, we will continue expanding our network to reach more passengers in and out the Philippines,” Lao added.
Cargo services will also be made available in these areas along with passenger services, contributing to growth of the more than 2,000 accounts that the airline currently holds.
Aside from Manila, Cebu Pacific also operates flights out of five other strategically placed hubs in the Philippines—Cebu, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo.
The airline’s extensive network covers over 100 routes and 66 destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the United States.
Cebu Pacific’s 57-strong fleet is comprised of five Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320, six Airbus A330, eight ATR 72-500 and two ATR 72-600 aircraft.
Between 2016 and 2021, the airline expects delivery of two more brand-new Airbus A330, 32 Airbus A321neo, and 14 ATR 72-600 aircraft.
Cebu Pacific earlier reported a net income of P7.09 billion in the January-to-September period in 2016, or double the profit of P3.56 billion year-on-year.
Revenues rose 10.5 percent to P46.69 billion from P42.30 billion in 2015.
