Piso Fare 2016: CAB grants CEB additional entitlements to the UAE and other int’l destinations


Piso Fare Promo 2016: The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), in a recently concluded board meeting, granted additional entitlements to the Philippines' leading carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), for international routes from Manila to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), from various points in the Philippines to Taipei and Kaohshiung in Taiwan, and from Manila to key destinations in Russia.





CEB was granted the right to operate additional seven flights weekly from Manila to the UAE, which would allow the airline to launch flights to any point in the UAE. Currently, CEB is fully utilizing its entitlements with daily flights between Manila and Dubai.



CEB's request for rights to operate direct flights to Taipei from Caticlan, Clark, Davao, Puerto Princesa, and Tagbilaran, as well as direct flights to Kaohshiung from Caticlan and Cebu, was likewise granted. The airline is presently operating ten times weekly flights between Manila and Taipei, and thrice weekly flights between Cebu and Taipei.



CEB was also designated as an official Philippine carrier to Russia, and was granted thrice weekly flights each from Manila to Moscow and Vladivostok.



In the same board meeting, CAB approved CEB's request to be designated as an official carrier under the ASEAN Multilateral Agreement on Air Services (MAAS). As soon as the Philippines completes the ratification of the relevant protocols of the MAAS, CEB will be able to operate unlimited flights between capital cities within the ASEAN region.



"We sincerely thank and commend the members of the Civil Aeronautics Board for enabling Philippine carriers such as Cebu Pacific to expand operations to key international destinations. We've always maintained that traffic rights are valuable resources that must be rationally allocated to carriers that are willing and able to utilize and operate flights. We look forward to mounting additional flights to meet the growing travel demand in communities we serve, and opening new routes to stimulate travel in emerging markets," said Atty. JR Mantaring, CEB VP for Corporate Affairs.



CEB offers flights to a network of over 90 routes on 60 destinations, spanning Sydney, Dubai, Doha, Bali, and Tokyo (Narita). On December 17, 2015, the airline launched three new routes: Manila – Fukuoka, Cebu – Taipei, and Davao – Singapore. It is also slated to launch direct flights from Manila to Guam, its first US destination, on March 15, 2016.

Cebu Pacific’s Middle East, Australia routes among fastest growing in its network


Piso Fare Promo 2016: The Philippines' leading carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) rounded up its fastest growing routes for the first 9 months of 2015, with its low-cost long-haul flights making the cut.




The countries or regions with the highest passenger growth from January to September 2015, compared to the same period last year, were Australia, the Middle East and Japan.



Based on September 2014 to September 2015 data from Australia's Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics, CEB garnered a 38% market share on the Manila-Sydney route. Overall traffic between Manila and Sydney also grew by 67% since CEB entered the market in September 2014.



CEB's Middle East growth was driven by the launch of Kuwait, Riyadh and Doha in recent months, as part of the airline's expansion in the region.



Meanwhile, to cater to the growing interest of Filipinos when it comes to travel to Japan, CEB expanded its Japan network with a direct Cebu-Narita (Tokyo) route beginning March of 2015. It will launch its Manila-Fukuoka route on December 17, 2015.



In the Philippines, CEB was able to stimulate more travel between Manila and Tagbilaran (Bohol) with additional twice daily flight frequencies. It also stimulated travel between Cebu and Tandag, after the airline launched flights to this Surigao del Sur city in June 2014. Passengers for both routes grew by over 100% from January to September 2015, compared to the same period last year, making them the fastest growing domestic routes.



"We're pleased to see the CEB Effect in these markets, and will continue to study destinations where we can grow traffic. As we take delivery of more aircraft in 2016, including brand-new ATR 72-600s for Cebgo, we look forward to serving more guests, and creating more tourism and business opportunities to benefit the destinations we fly to," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.



The airline offers flights to a network of over 90 routes on 60 destinations, spanning Guam, Sydney, Dubai, Bali and Seoul. It operates flights from six Philippine hubs: Manila, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Clark and Kalibo.
