“CEB is also the only carrier offering Fun Games on board, so our guests not only reach their destinations safely and on time, but they also have fun getting there. We have heard a lot of positive feedback from first-time fliers, groups of friends and family members because of our games,” she said.
CEB also won an Anvil Award of Excellence at the 46th Anvil Awards last February 18, 2011, for the Cebu Pacific Media Backpacker’s Challenge.
“We are also very happy that our Facebook and Twitter accounts have more than 100,000 fans and followers each, surpassing other low-cost carriers in Asia. CEB encourages passengers to be a fan or follower to be the first to know Cebu Pacific’s seat sales and promos,” said Iyog.
