Cebu Pacific said Wednesday it restored 88 percent of its pre-pandemic system-wide capacity as it expands domestic and international flights.
The airline unit of the Gokongwei Group said it now flies an average of 340 flights a day, covering 34 domestic and 18 international destinations. This is equivalent to roughly 64,000 seats offered in a day.
The airline also restored 100 percent of its pre-pandemic domestic capacity in April this year.
Cebu Pacific said it surpassed its December 2019 level for domestic capacity as it marked A 109-percent restoration in July 2022.
“We are pleased to see more people confidently flying again, not just within the Philippines but even abroad,” Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer Xander Lao said.
“This positive development has not only allowed us to carry more passengers, but also boosted our cargo service,” he said.
Cebu Pacific said to continue spurring travel, it is offering flights for as low as P188 one-way base fare for domestic routes on sale from July 7 to 11, 2022.
Travel period is from Sept. 1, 2022, to Jan. 31, 2023.
Cebu Pacific said it also offers simultaneous special international seat sale, on the same travel period, to key destinations for as low as P499 one-way base fare.
These include flights to South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Bangkok, among others.
“We remain committed to offering the lowest fares across our network and we are encouraged by past seat sale success rates so we will continue to stimulate travel through our promo fares,” Lao said.
