In a recent study conducted by a prominent London-based brand valuation consultancy firm, Cebu Pacific, the leading carrier in the Philippines, has been recognized as one of the country’s most valuable and strongest brands for the year 2023.

Brand Strength Index

The airline secured the third spot in the Brand Strength Index with a remarkable score of 81.0, denoting a AAA- rating, and also made its debut appearance in the list of the Philippines’ most valuable brands, ranking 20th with a brand value of US$194 million.

Factors considered

Their annual list of the most valuable and strongest brands is derived from an extensive survey of over 100,000 respondents worldwide, who offer their perceptions on more than 4,000 brands.

The assessment also considers other crucial factors such as marketing investments, research and development endeavors, review site ratings, social media engagement, customer churn, and market share.

Brand Finance’s report highlights that the Philippines’ strongest brands are evaluated based on a balanced scorecard that considers the marketing investment, shareholder equity, and business performance of each company.

On the other hand, the brand value is associated with the “present value of earnings specifically related to brand reputation.”

Candice Iyog expressed appreciation for the passengers’ trust and confidence in Cebu Pacific, recognizing that the aviation industry is constantly evolving and challenging.
