The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) flew close to 1.1 million passengers for the month of October. The month of October can traditionally be considered off-peak travel in the Philippines.
CEB first reached the 1 million mark last April and May 2011, a first for any Philippine carrier.
The airline flew close to 860,000 domestic and more than 231,000 international passengers from October 1-31, 2011, with an average load factor of 88%. Load factor refers to how full the planes are.
“CEB is gearing up for a strong finish for 2011, and stays on track for its 12 million passenger target for the year. We will continue to strengthen the aviation market in the country, especially with the number of CEB passengers and planes operating out of the Philippines’ airports,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
“The airline will continue boosting travel within the country and top Asia-Pacific destinations by offering the lowest fares in all the markets it serves. We encourage everyone to book their seats early and check-in online for the best airfare deals and utmost travel convenience,” she added.
Iyog said that CEB is holding a select 50% off seat sale, from November 15 to 17, 2011 or until seats last. This is for travel from January 1 to March 31, 2012.
CEB offers seats at 50% off for its Cagayan de Oro-Iloilo flights and Cebu hub seats. This includes flights from Cebu to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Caticlan (Boracay), Clark, Davao, Dipolog, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Legazpi, Manila, Ozamiz, Pagadian, Puerto Princesa, Siargao, Surigao, Tacloban and Zamboanga.
