Cebu Pacific (CEB) has restored 100 percent of its pre-pandemic capacity in time for the summer season, the airline announced Wednesday, May 25.

CEB added more flights across its seven hubs in the Philippines – Manila, Cebu, Clark, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Iloilo and Kalibo – providing passengers with more direct connectivity across the country.

Just last month, the airline resumed more direct flights from its VisMin hubs, specifically to Calbayog, Surigao, Puerto Princesa, and Legazpi from Cebu; and to Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, and Zamboanga from Davao.

The increase in flights not only boosts passenger operations but also CEB’s cargo business, which benefits local enterprises.


“We take pride in operating the most flights across our Philippine network and we are happy to keep providing more convenient options for our passengers,” says Xander Lao, CEB Chief Commercial Officer.

“We recently resumed more flights from our hubs in the Visayas and Mindanao, so locals there will no longer need to connect to Manila to fly to their favorite domestic destinations,” he added.

At present, CEB flies close to 350 flights per day which include multiple flights to and from key Philippine destinations, such as Boracay, Bohol, Cebu, Davao, and General Santos.

Its domestic network has over 50 routes spanning Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

“We are confident that our continuous ramp-up, coupled with our lowest fares, will ensure there is a CEB flight for everyone for whatever purpose they may have for travel – be it for vacation, business, or to visit family and friends,” added Lao.

CEB continues to offer its guaranteed low fares to stimulate travel across its domestic network covering 34 destinations.

It also continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety, while it operates with a 100 percent fully vaccinated crew, 91 percent of whom have been boosted.
