Cebu Pacific removes surcharges for domestic flights
Cebu Pacific (CEB) has announced that it is removing fuel and insurance surcharges for all its domestic flights effective Jan. 7, 2009.
In its website, CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog said, “We are committed to offering the public the most affordable fares coupled with the newest planes. In fact, we have made air travel a viable option for those who would normally travel by bus or ferry. We will continue to give Every Juan more reasons to fly as we expect to take delivery of six brand new aircraft in 2009.”
Cebu Pacific also cut its fuel and insurance surcharge for its Manila-Bangkok and Clark-Bangkok routes (one way), slashing these from US$80 to US$50 and US$80 to US$60, respectively. The surcharges for the Manila-Osaka route (one way) are lowered from US$105 to US$100 while the Manila-Hong Kong surcharges are reduced from US$45 to US$40 per way.
This is very good news for travelers like me. The removal of fuel and insurance surcharges can easily translate to savings. It will also allow more Filipinos to travel in and out the country at lower prices. I’m specially partial to Cebu Pacific as hubby and I always fly Cebu Pacific during our annual anniversary trips.
