MANILA -- Leading budget airline Cebu Pacific (CEB) are offering lowering rates for flights on Tuesdays and Thursdays, especially after the end of summer.

“We are pushing for Tuesday-Thursday travel because there are even lower fares available during these dates. Passengers will surely greatly benefit from fares that are usually less than the regular fares during weekends,” Cebu Pacific Vice President for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog said in a statement.

“The combination of booking early and strategically on Tuesdays and Thursdays can result in round-trip fares amounting to the lowest possible fare of P1,393 to Naga, for example, or P2,998 to Taipei or Kota Kinabalu – exclusive of Taiwan and Malaysia country taxes,” she added.

Cebu Pacific said passengers can avail of cheap flights to leisure destinations, such as those from Manila to Kalibo, Boracay (Caticlan), Laoag, Legazpi, Naga, Virac, Coron (Busuanga), Dumaguete, Iloilo, San Jose, Bacolod, Dipolog, Puerto Princesa, and Tagbilaran (Bohol).

International destinations that are less expensive during the middle of the week are Hong Kong (from Manila, Cebu and Clark), Osaka, Ho Chi Minh, Guangzhou, while international flights in the Clark airport go to Macau, Singapore

and Bangkok. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
