CEBU Pacific will be fielding more flights to and from its Cebu hub, in time for the arrival of its brand-new Airbus A320 from Toulouse, France.

Starting February 8, 2012, the budget airline will add flights from Cebu to the following destinations: Manila (11 weekly flights), Boracay (four weekly flights), Dipolog (three weekly flights), Legazpi (four weekly flights), Pagadian (two weekly flights), and Siargao (one weekly flight).

Aside from this additional schedule, Cebu Pacific will also increase seat capacity from Cebu to Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo and General Santos on the same dates. These routes utilize Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft.

On February 24, 2012, Cebu Pacific will start mounting thrice-weekly Cebu-Kalibo flights. It will also add four times weekly flights to the Iloilo-Cagayan de Oro-Iloilo route starting February 8, 2012.

“We are the largest airline operating in Cebu, and our passengers have the fastest access to key cities in the Philippines and Asia. With even more flights starting February 2012, Cebu Pacific continues to offer them the most number of flight options and the lowest fares,” said the Vice President for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog.

With the addition of the Cebu-Kalibo route in February, the airline offers flights to 20 domestic and four international (Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Pusan) destinations from Cebu, greatly contributing to the access of foreign tourists to the Central Visayas area, Iyog added.

Cebu Pacific flew close to 11 million passengers from January to November 2011, a growth of 14 percent compared with the same period last year. It also flew 1 million passengers during the months of April, May, October and November. The airline flew 2.56 million passengers in and out of itsCebuhub from January to November 2011.
