MANILA, Philippines – Gokongwei-owned Cebu Pacific Air has increased its weekly flights between Manila and Hong Kong to accommodate demand for the summer season.

Cebu Pacific said it is adding 4 extra weekly flights from April 11 to May 2, increasing its total to 32 weekly flights between Manila and Hong Kong.

The low cost carrier also flies direct to Hong Kong from Cebu, Clark and Iloilo.

The airline has also added more flights to its Manila-Hanoi route, operating thrice weekly every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Cebu Pacific also announced that it will upgrade two Manila-Taipei flights to a 436-seater Airbus A330 aircraft from May 2 to June 3.

A 180-seater Airbus A320 aircraft will be used for the rest of the week.

“By upgrading some of our Taipei flights to a bigger aircraft, we are able to offer 41 percent more seats, making more low fares to and from Taipei available for everyJuan,” vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said.

Cebu Pacific is expecting the delivery of 12 more brand-new Airbus A320, 30 Airbus A321neo and 3 Airbus A330 aircraft from 2014 to 2021.

“The delivery of more aircraft will allow us to add more destinations, routes and flights to an already extensive network to key cities in Asia and the Middle East. We encourage everyJuan to take advantage of these additional flights and CEB’s trademark lowest fares, for their leisure and business travel needs,” Iyog said.

Cebu Pacific’s 51-strong fleet is comprised of 10 Airbus A319, 30 Airbus A320, 3 Airbus A330 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft.
