Cebu Pacific statement

“It has always been our core mission to stimulate travel so we are excited to offer yet another special seat sale as we enter the –ber months,”
“Whether passengers are in the mood to revisit their favorite beach destinations for that much-needed rest and relaxation in Boracay, Bohol, Siargao, Palawan, and Cebu.”
“Or fly abroad to explore the unique culture and cuisine in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi in Vietnam; or Bali and Jakarta in Indonesia; or Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia; or Bangkok in Thailand; or Seoul in South Korea – this sale will allow you to turn your travel dreams into reality.”
A steady return to service
The latest round of offerings from the carrier comes as Cebu Pacific progressively pushes forward out of the pandemic slump.
Cebu Pacific announced in July that their services were steadily returned to pre-pandemic levels. As of July, the airline was enjoying a return to 88% of the pre-pandemic activity levels.
The easing of travel restrictions between Australia and the Philippines saw the resumption of Sydney flights in the same month.
Tens of thousands of Australians visit the Philippines each year prior to Covid-19 and the launch of the new route further boosted the ailing tourism sector of the Philippines, as Australians took to the sky in large numbers following the long restriction period.
A Ber Season boost
The current Ber Season should provide a further boost to the airline, with the connection to the United States seeing a strong demand for air travel.
To date, CEB flies to a total of 34 domestic and 19 international destinations. It continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety, while it operates with a 100% fully vaccinated crew, 95% of whom have been boosted – all to ensure every Juan flies safely and conveniently on Cebu Pacific.
