CEB Slashes Fuel Surcharge 20%

MANILA, Philippines --- To further lower fares for passengers, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) slashed fuel surcharges on its domestic flights by 20%.

Airlines all over the world add fuel surcharges to air fares to offset the rising cost of fuel, one of their major cost components.

However, effective June 25, 2012, CEB brought down fuel surcharges by P100 from Manila to Visayas, Mindanao and select Luzon routes ; by P50 from Manila to select Luzon routes, from Visayas to Luzon and Mindanao and within Visayas as well as from Mindanao to Visayas and within Mindanao.

"We are committed to offering the public the lowest all-in fares in all the routes we operate," explained CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog. "Our all-in lowest fares will be even more affordable to business and leisure travelers in the Philippines."

"CEB will continue to look for ways to make flying accessible to everyone, with the expected delivery of three more brand-new Airbus A320 in the 2nd half of the year," she added.

CEB reduced domestic fuel surcharge in tandem with an P888 all-in seat sale from Manila to Visayas and an P1,188 all-in seat sale from Manila to Mindanao. This is available from June 25 to 27, 2012 or until seats last, for travel from August 25 to October 31, 2012.

Passengers can also buy P688 all-in seats on its two newest domestic routes: Davao-Puerto Princesa and Davao-Kalibo (Boracay). These new routes will be launched on August 2, 2012.

All-in domestic fares are inclusive of fuel surcharge, administration fee, aviation security fee, 12% VAT and 7 kilos hand carry baggage allowance, but exclusive of check-in baggage.

Meanwhile, an international seat sale to China (Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai or Xiamen), Korea (Seoul or Busan), Hong Kong and Macau is also available, for travel from August 1 to October 31, 2012.

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 the largest aircraft fleet in the Philippines.
