"We (want) to serve Cebu and Davao guests on our newest A330 aircraft, and offering A330 travel products such as CEB Air Wi-Fi. These additional seats are just in time for the Philippine summer season, so we encourage guests to book their flights in advance for the most travel savings," said CEB vice president for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
