The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) flew more than 3.53 million passengers from January to March (Q1) 2013, an increase of 5% compared to 3.37 million passengers in Q1 2012.
Seat sales, increased routes and flight frequencies and sustained promotions paved the way for the following international passenger growth: Brunei (43%), South Korea (34%), Malaysia (18%), China (15%) and Indonesia (13%).
CEB also grew its domestic passengers to and from Zamboanga (17%), as well as hubs in Davao (20%), Kalibo (22%) and Iloilo (29%).
“Cebu Pacific continues to link islands and countries, and provide lowest fare options so everyone can travel by air. Passenger growths in countries such as Korea and China, as well as regions like Iloilo and Davao, are particularly fulfilling. We remain focused on driving tourism to and within the Philippines in 2013,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Iyog cited that with CEB’s extensive route network, travel between Visayas and Mindanao grew by 13%, while travel within Mindanao grew by 45%. CEB launched multiple flights from Iloilo, Davao and Cagayan de Oro in the 4th quarter of 2012.
CEB is also slated to launch flights from Cebu to Masbate (June 1, 2013) and Taipei (July 5, 2013), as well as the airline’s first long haul flights from Manila to Dubai (October 7, 2013).
