To cope with the increase of domestic and international inbound tourists in the Philippines,
Cebu Pacific executive Mike Szücs announced their aim of flying more passengers in 2018 and onward.
In line with this goal, “we have planned for the delivery of 45 more aircrafts from now to 2022, with about one aircraft arriving every month for the next 14 to 15 months,” Szücs said.
“This includes seven Airbus 321ceos, five of which are currently in service, and 32 Airbus neos over the next four years. “The first A321neo will arrive in November this year, with another eight scheduled for next year,” he added.
According to a popular travel magazine, Cebu Pacific is something of a hidden gem in international aviation, carrying Filipino travellers across its extensive route network at affordable prices.
Alongside departures to Sydney in Australia, Chinese capital Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai, the carrier also maintains an extensive network across the Philippines, with its 37 domestic routes served from seven strategically-placed hubs in Manila, Cebu, Clark, Kalibo, Iloilo, Davao and Cagayan de Oro.
With planes operating near capacity, boarding starts early ━ nearly one hour
before actual take-off.
Now the leading airline in the Philippines, Cebu Pacific entered the aviation industry in March 1996 and has flown over 150 million passengers.
