The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE: CEB), adds frequencies and seats to key international destinations for the upcoming holiday peak travel period.
Beginning select dates in November and December*, CEB will add twice weekly flights for the following popular Southeast Asian routes: Manila-Bangkok (total of 14 times weekly), Manila-Hanoi (total of 5 times weekly), and Manila-Kuala Lumpur (total of 13 times weekly). The carrier will also mount one additional flight per week between Manila and Bali (Denpasar) for a total of three times weekly flights.
Meanwhile, CEB will upgrade select flights between Manila and Hong Kong, Taipei, and Tokyo (Narita) from Airbus A320 to A330 aircraft to accommodate additional passenger traffic starting December 20, 2016.

Guests can save on air fares by booking flights early via the official CEB website or mobile app, where we post promo updates,” says Atty. JR Mantaring, CEB Vice President for Corporate Affairs.
