Cebu Pacific carried close to 30,000 passengers in LC since June 2006

Cebu Pacific (CEB), the country’s low-fare leader and leading domestic airline, carried close to 30,000 passengers in its Laoag - Manila (vice versa) flights since it started its operations in June 2006.

Candice Iyog, CEB VP for Marketing and Product announced, “ The number of passengers in the Laoag - Manila flights have been growing continuously and we are very pleased to know that we’ve been giving more people the opportunity to travel by air with our year round low fares and our continued domestic expansion.”

“We are the fastest growing airline in the country and one of the fastest in the world. With our recently announced fleet expansion, we hope that we can encourage more people to travel and see the wonderful sites of our country. This is good not only for our country’s tourism agenda but also for the local economy as a whole,” she added.

CEB carried close to 520,000 passengers in May for all of its domestic and international flights, the highest the airline has ever carried since it started operation in 1996. CEB is expecting to carry more than 5 million passengers this year and 10 million by 2013.

Iyog added that with the arrival of another Airbus aircraft late this year, CEB will be able to add more capacity into its network and offer more seats at lower fares.

CEB currently has 14 new Airbus aircraft and is acquiring up to 20 more. It has also recently placed an order for up to 14 ATR 72-500 aircraft with the delivery of the first two in early 2008. CEB expects to operate a fleet of 46 aircraft by 2013.
