Cebu Pacific (CEB) will resume service to Singapore daily starting August 31, 2006, as part of its regional expansion program, with promotional fares as low as P 1,499 one-way.

The Manila-Singapore flight, using CEB’s brand-new Airbus aircraft, leaves Manila at 8:30pm, arriving in Singapore at 11:55pm and leaves Singapore at 12:40am the following day to arrive back in Manila at 4:05am.

CEB last flew to Singapore in 2003. The airline will resume service following a steady growth in passenger traffic in the last three years. Filipino visitors to Singapore alone totaled 319,898, up by 30.09% from 2004.

“We are confident about our re-entry to Singapore. It is a developed market for budget airlines and we believe that our low fares and great value offering will entice this market to patronize CEB and attract more people to travel to the Philippines. With our brand new fleet and real time online booking engine ( we will be able to offer our trademark low fares to this destination,” said Lance Gokongwei, CEB president and CEO.

CEB will launch its Manila-Singapore leg with a seat sale of only P 1,499 one-way, a price cut of more than 64% from the current airfare to Singapore. The promo is exclusive of surcharges and taxes and will run from July 20 to 26, 2006. Travel date is from August 31 to October 19, 2006. The best way to get tickets for the seat sale is through the CEB website (

After the Seat Sale, the permanent ‘Go’ fares to Singapore will start at P 2,499 one-way. Still 41% lower than the current lowest fare to Singapore. The ‘Go’ fares are exclusive of surcharges and government taxes.

“We have seen the encouraging effects of our year-round ‘Go’ fares in the domestic sector and in our Hong Kong operations, and we are very excited to make this available in Singapore. It has always been our vision to make flying an option for more Filipinos both locally and regionally because this translates to a healthier tourism industry,” Gokongwei added.

The airline now services 17 domestic destinations and also flies to Hong Kong and Seoul, South Korea.

CEB currently operates two A320 and seven A319 aircraft. Three more A319 aircraft will arrive before the end of the year while the last two A320 aircraft will arrive in early 2007. By then, CEB’s $670 million re-fleeting program shall be completed and the airline will have the youngest fleet in the Philippines and one of the youngest in Asia.

Now in its 11th year, CEB pioneered low fares in the country in March 1996. It also introduced travelers to on-time service, e-ticketing and on-line booking, setting the standards for airline innovation in the local aviation industry.
