The Philippines’ largest low cost carrier flew 19.1 million passengers in 2016, 4% increase from its 2015 record.
CEB also set a new record for the most number of passengers flown on a single day, 64,684, last Dec. 27, 2016 beating its 3 January 2016 record.
“This significant increase in number only shows our firm commitment in trafficking trade and tourism in all the destinations we operate in, while at the same time enabling everyJuan to connect with their families and friends all around the world,” Mantaring said.
In total, Cebu Pacific and subsidiary Cebgo carried a total 19.13 million passengers last year, four percent higher than the 18.38 million passengers served in 2015.
The higher passenger volume was largely driven by the airline’s low-cost short-haul services, and increased frequencies in key domestic markets.
Cebu Pacific saw passenger growth in international destinations such as Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen in China, Taiwan (Taipei), and Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.
