THE Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) makes its network wider, now that its interline agreement with Singapore’s largest low-cost carrier, Tigerair Singapore, has reached its final phase.
Starting September 3, 2014, destinations such as Bangalore (India), Yangon (Myanmar), Perth (Australia), Male (Maldives), and Dhaka (Bangladesh), among others are available through the CEB website, www.cebupacificair.com.
CEB flights became available in the Tigerair Singapore website (http://www.tigerair.com) last July 23, 2014.
“We are very happy to offer our guests more travel options and easy connectivity through the Manila and Singapore airports. With the final phase of this interline agreement in place, cross-booking flights on a single itinerary to the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East becomes very convenient,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Both Tigerair and CEB operate out of Singapore’s Changi International Airport Terminal 2.
Guests taking CEB’s direct flights from Manila, Cebu, Clark or Iloilo can avail of the CEBConnect product upon landing in Singapore, for a fast and seamless transfer.
Guests who purchased CEBConnect simply have to collect a boarding pass for the onward flight at Changi Airport Transfer Lounge E. There is no more need to clear through Immigration, pick up bags or check in again. This is applicable for flights with a minimum of two hours connecting time at Changi Airport.
“We continue to work on providing travel options and opportunities for our guests. With this enhanced low-cost network, we hope that we can enable even more Juans to fly,” Iyog said.
