MANILA, Philippines – Budget carrier Cebu Pacific announced it is mounting additional flights to Vietnam and China as part of its expansion program to meet the growing number of passengers.

In a statement on Friday, July 12, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said the airline is increasing 33% seat capacity to the fast growing route between the Philippines and Hanoi in Vietnam and Guangzhou in China.

“Vietnam and China are two of our fast-growing source markets for foreign tourists. We continue to support the government’s tourism goals, with this increased connectivity and Cebu Pacific’s trademark lowest fares,” Iyog stressed.

Starting Oct. 13, Cebu Pacific will fly 3x a week between Manila and Hanoi using Airbus A319 aircraft.

It is the only airline with direct flights between the Philippines and Hanoi where Ha Long Bay is located which is one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. It also flies daily from Manila to Ho Chi Minh.

Starting Nov. 2, the low cost carrier is also set to fly 4x a week from Manila to Guangzhou.

This will result in a 25% increase in seat capacity. Aside from Guangzhou, it also flies daily to Shanghai, three times a week to Xiamen, and four times a week to Beijing.

Iyog said the additional flights to Vietnam and China is in line with the airline’s ongoing expansion program.

“This is also in line with the delivery of more aircraft in 2013, as we expand in Asia and the Middle East. These additional flights will provide more flight schedule options to guests booking their flights in time for the holidays,” she added. – Rappler.com
