Our passengers can look forward to even more convenient features on www.cebupacificair.com and more prizes to be given away on our official Facebook and Twitter pages,” said Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Because of the win, Cebu Pacific CEB is offering a P1 seat sale to select destinations from March 2 to 4 or until seats last, for travel from June 1 to Sept. 30, 2012.

“We also encourage everyone to join the CEB Club, which was relaunched last year. It is very convenient for passengers who book CEB tickets often since they will get to manage their bookings, track flights and receive early alerts on seat sales,” she added.
CEB Club members can store guest details, especially if they keep booking for family and friends, and payment details for a faster booking process. They can also view and print itinerary receipt, do web check-in and print a boarding pass, change or cancel bookings, add baggage allowance or travel insurance, and check flight status, among others.
Cebu Pacific was the first to introduce e-ticketing, web check-in, self check-in, Lite Fares and seat selection in the Philippines. Last year, Cebu Pacific partnered with agoda.com for easy hotel booking through the Cebu Pacific website. The airline also introduced a payment center option that allows guests to book online and pay via partner banks. (PR)
