PDFPrintE-mail

The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB) became the first and only airline to operate flights between Manila and Siem Reap, Cambodia, when its maiden flight took off from Manila last April 19, 2012 at 7:45pm, arriving in Siem Reap at 9:30pm.

His Excellency Hos Serythonh, Ambassador of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia to the Republic of the Philippines and NAIA Terminal 3 Manager Octavio Lina sent off the maiden Manila – Siem Reap passengers.

“Our maiden Manila - Siem Reap is taking off with a full 180 passenger load, marking a momentous occasion for Philippine-Cambodia tourism. A lot of passengers visiting the World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat can take advantage of CEB’s direct flight and trademark lowest fares for their travel convenience,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

CEB now operates a Manila – Siem Reap – Manila service every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, using the largest and youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. The regular return flight departs Siem Reap at 10:30pm, arriving in Manila at 2:10am.

Lowest year-round fares for this route start at P3,499.

“We are happy that Cebu Pacific chose Cambodia to be part of its extensive Asia-Pacific network, as the only airline to operate the Manila – Siem Reap route. These direct flights to Siem Reap will undoubtedly contribute significantly to the development of tourism and trade between our two countries, and to enhancing the connectivity of our airport. We know this is only the beginning of our cooperation with Cebu Pacific,” said Cambodia Airports Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Menanteau.

CEB operates flights from the Philippines to the most number of capital cities in the ASEAN, and serve the most number of routes. It offers more than 90 flights per week from the Philippines to 8 ASEAN destinations in 6 countries.

For bookings and inquiries, guests can go to www.cebupacificair.com or call the reservation hotlines (02) 7020-888 or (032) 230-8888. The latest seat sales and promos can also be found on CEB’s official Twitter and Facebook pages.

Iyog added that guests can also book hotel deals through its partnership withagoda.com, the leading Asia-based online hotel reservations company that specializes in the lowest discount hotel prices. Its network includes more than 160,000 hotels worldwide.

In its 16th year of operations, CEB had flown over 60 million passengers. It provides access to the most extensive network in the Philppines, with 32 domestic and 19 international destinations. The airline also remains a pioneer in the Philippine aviation industry by being the first to offer web check-in, self check-in, e-ticketing, Lite Fares and One Peso seat sales.

CEB currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. Its fleet of 38 aircraft – with an average age of 3.6 years – is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world. Between 2012 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 22 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders.
