Cebu Pacific flew more than 1 million passengers for the month of April, a first for any local airline.
The airline flew 1,086,650 passengers on both domestic and international routes in April
The airline operates to 33 domestic and 16 international destinations, on 52 domestic and
24 international routes.
It also broke its own record for the number of passengers carried in one day. Last April 29, 2011, CEB carried 37,835 in one day, overtaking previous records in the first quarter of 2011.
“This is the first time CEB has flown over a million guests in one month. It is a testament to how much CEB has empowered everyone to travel by air with its trademark low fares and high-valueservices. We thank our passengers for their continued patronage of the country’s low-fare pioneer,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
“CEB attributes this landmark number to having the lowest fares in the market, newest aircraft fleet
in the country, and most extensive route network. We will continue offering innovative products and pricing structures for the benefit of our passengers,” she added.
CEB is the Philippines’ largest turbo-prop operator, operating the most inter-island flights to
the top tourist destinations in the country. The airline opened Siargao, Pagadian and Cauayan
(Isabela) to air travel, and helped lower fares to Coron (Busuanga) and Boracay (Caticlan).
It also offers the most seats and flight frequencies to Cebu and Davao, two of the largest
business-traffic routes in the country, stimulating same-day business travels and weekend
By the end of 2011, CEB will be operating a fleet of 37 aircraft – with an average age of less than 3.5 years – one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world.
Between 2012 and 2014, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of an additional 16 brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft.
