Cebu Pacific’s P10 one-way fare sold out

Cebu Pacific's P10 one-way fare sold out

Cebu Pacific (CEB) has sold in six promo days more than 150,000 seats at P10 each for its 10th anniversary last week and pledged to continue promoting domestic tourism.

Lance Gokongwei, CEB president, said the airline will continue to assist the government in its efforts to promote domestic tourism by making air travel more affordable through permanent low fares. "The key to getting these low fares is to book early," he added.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who was present during the celebration, led the blessing of one of the airline's brand-new Airbus A319 aircraft.

It now operates two A320 aircraft and four A319 aircraft, all brand new. Once it takes delivery of eight more new Airbus aircraft in the next 12 months to complete its $670-million refleeting program, CEB would have the youngest fleet in Asia, Gokongwei said.

Gokongwei said the program signifies CEB's commitment to be an active partner in the nation's progress by helping travel and tourism become a more vibrant sector. "We want more Filipinos to experience flying and we want to do our own share in connecting all of our islands with great, on time, Cebu Pacific service," he said.

"CEB's strength as an airline has and will always be putting the traveler at the center of everything that we do—in planning our fleet, in determining our schedules and in planning our fares, making sure that more people can fly," he stressed.
