CEBU PACIFIC is optimistic that the upcoming launch of its direct service between Manila and Melbourne will further boost its market share in Australia on the back of competitive fare offerings for both passengers and cargo. Cebu Pacific is set to commence operation of its thrice-a-week Manila-Melbourne-Manila service on August 14, 2018.
Since this was first announced in February this year, “Bookings for our Manila-Melbourne-Manila service are healthy,”said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing at Cebu Pacific.
“The bookings comprise of travelers who want to visit Melbourne and Filipino-Australians who want to visit friends and relatives in various parts of the Philippines. Cebu Pacific fares between Manila and Melbourne start as low as PHP9,539—about 60 percent lower than prevailing fares of other airlines. We’re thrilled to extend the CEB effect to Melbourne,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing at Cebu Pacific.”
Melbourne is the second destination of Cebu Pacific in Australia following the launch of its direct Manila-Sydney route in 2014.
Direct service between Manila and Sydney, which commences on August 14, will depart every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
