Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), the Philippines’ leading airline, expects to restore over 100 percent of its pre-pandemic domestic capacity in April 2022 after it ramped up its network with the easing of pandemic travel restrictions, marking a strong start for its 26th year.
As the summer peak approaches, the airline has noted a 200 percent increase in its average daily flights for both domestic and international combined – from about 100 flights per day in 2020, to about 300 at present. Flights from Manila to key domestic destinations, such as Boracay and Cebu, have exceeded their 2019 flight frequencies.
The airline currently operates 96 percent of its pre-pandemic domestic capacity. The improvement has enabled CEB to carry more passengers and boost its cargo service which means faster and more efficient movement of goods across its widest domestic network.
CEB also celebrated another milestone today as it flew its 200 millionth passenger on board one of its 18 times daily Manila-Cebu flights. This route was the first ever flown by CEB back in 1996.
Cebu Pacific operates the widest domestic network in the Philippines covering 33 destinations, on top of its 14 international destinations. Its 74-strong fleet, one of the youngest in the world, includes two dedicated ATR freighters.
CEB has achieved a 7-star safety rating from airlineratings.com for its COVID-19 compliance. It continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety, while it operates with a 100 percent fully vaccinated crew – all to ensure its every Juan flies safely and conveniently on Cebu Pacific.
