MANILA -- Leading budget carrier Cebu Pacific slashed fares of up to 50 percent in all destinations to meet the demand of low fares for the Christmas season.

Booking of flights started last Thursday and will end on Saturday or until seats last, for travel from December 1 to 31, 2010.

“We decided to offer this big 50 percent off seat sale because of the demand for low fares this December. Even if this is Christmas peak travel period, we still aim to give everyone the chance to fly,” said Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog.

Iyog advised passengers to book their tickets online although guests without credit cards can also book online and use our payment centers to pay.

These centers include Bancnet online, LBC, Megalink, and partner banks Metrobank, BDO and Robinsons Savings Bank. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
