Cebu Pacific Increases International Capacity for Summer with A330

Cebu Pacific has announced that it will be increasing capacity on routes from Manila to Taipei, Hanoi, and Hong Kong to meet growing demand during the summer travel season. From May 2 to June 3, Cebu Pacific will upgrade two of its seven weekly frequencies between Manila and Taipei to the 436-seat Airbus A330 aircraft.

The remaining five frequencies will continue to be operated by Cebu Pacific's 180-seat Airbus A320 fleet. "By upgrading some of our Taipei flights to a bigger aircraft, we are able to offer 41 percent more seats, making more low fares to and from Taipei available for everyJuan," said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Marketing and Distribution.

In addition, Cebu Pacific also plans to offer an additional four weekly flights between Manila and Hong Kong until May 2. That will increase the number of weekly flights between the two cities from 28 to 32. The additional frequencies are on top of Cebu Pacific's regular service to Hong Kong from Iloilo, Clark, and Cebu.

The airline also plans to increase capacity between Manila and Hanoi. Currently, Cebu Pacific is the only airline operating direct flights between the two cities. It plans to operate three weekly flights from Manila to Hanoi every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 

As Cebu Pacific accepts delivery of new aircraft, the airline plans to add more destinations and increase frequencies on existing routes. "The delivery of more aircraft will allow us to add more destinations, routes, and flights to an already extensive network of key cities in Asia and the Middle East," said Iyog. "We encourage everyJuan to take advantage of these additional flights for their leisure and business travel needs."

Cebu Pacific was given clearance last week to mount new flights to Europe and the United States. The airline is currently planning to expand its long-haul network to additional cities in the Middle East and cities in Australia. An announcement is expected later this year on new cities that will be joining the Cebu Pacific long-haul network. The airline will be accepting delivery of additional A330 wide-body aircraft in the coming months.
