MANILA – Cebu Pacific plans to mount flights to Taiwan from airports outside Manila.
Cebu Air Inc (CEB) has written the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) seeking 5,850 more weekly seats. These will be divided into 1,260 seats each for Clark, Cebu, Davao, Puerto Princesa and Tagbilaran.
At present, Cebu Pacific already enjoys 450 weekly seat entitlements.
The request comes after the Manila Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei and the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office in Manila agreed to lift the cap on flights between any point in Taiwan and any point in the Philippines.
“We are confident that with our signature low fares will grow the Taiwan market and bring tourists and our fellow overseas Filipinos straight to our prime tourist destinations through our secondary gateways,” CEB external affairs manager Mary Rose Grace Donato-Lim said.
