Gokongweis banking on busy Christmas travel season: Cebu Pacific adds more flights to 6 key local routes

Budget carrier Cebu Pacific is rushing to add more flights to major domestic leisure destinations to capitalize on the huge pent-up demand for travel and claw its way back to profitability.

The Gokongwei-led airline is expanding its Manila-Boracay-Manila flights from six to nine times daily starting November 22. This is way beyond its pre- COVID capacity to the island.

By next month, Cebu Pacific will boost its Boracay-Cebu service to six times weekly.

Flights between Bohol and Manila will also increase from 12 times weekly to twice daily starting November 23.

By December, operations between Cebu and Manila will increase from six times daily to nine times daily, while flights to Cagayan de Oro will ramp up from five times daily to up to six times daily.

Manila to Davao flights will go up to three (3) times daily from five times weekly in December.

Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific now flies to General Santos daily.

“As more destinations open their borders and simplify travel requirements, we look forward to more LGUs to follow suit especially for fully vaccinated individuals. These developments are perfect for families who may want to travel this Christmas season and visit Philippine destinations,” said Xander Lao, chief commercial officer at Cebu Pacific.

For international destinations, Cebu Pacific will resume its operations to Bangkok every Saturday starting Dec 11, and to Fukuoka every Tuesday starting Dec 7.
