Filipinos love to travel anywhere around the world to be familiar with how other cultures have beautifully molded their enigmatic territories with an abounding and a more expressive wisdom that are only unique to these blissful countries without reservations.  To make your tours more memorable, famous low cost carrier companies had launched new routes from Manila and the Mactan Cebu International Airport.


Cebu Pacific

One of the superb low-cost carriers of today, which is Cebu Pacific had asked the Civil Aeronautics Board to allow them to have an additional surcharge on the fuel cost of these safe and budget-friendly low cost carriers in order to have more passengers as well as the newest international routes going to Taipei and Japan. This was according to John Gokongwei of Cebu Air.

Reports said that the new routes from Manila of these LCC’s had flown to Narita where it solely intended to impose a fuel surcharge of $71 per passenger as well as Taipei wherein travelers had paid $34 from Cebu.

Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific had mounted flights to Butuan from Manila with a total surcharge of Php 500.00 for each passenger.  Both Gokongwei and his trusted General Manager for Long Haul Division Alex Reyes, had announced that they had finally included these new routes from Manila to Sydney and Manila to Kuwait as their new destinations.

Sa mga taong darating na panahon, Cebu Pacific’s LCC ay lalo pang papalawigin sa himpapawid sa pagkakaroon ng mga sumusunod: 11 na A320, 30 Airbus, A321 Neos at 2 na Airbus 30. Ito ay maaaring maganap mula 2015 hanggang 2021.  Dahil dito, ang Cebu Pacific ay naglalayag na sa himpapapawid sa loob ng tatlong beses isang linggo from Manila to Kuwait, apat na beses sa isang linggo  mula Manila to Sydney simula pa noong  ika-siyam ng Setyembre 2014. Bilang  paglulunsad ng bagong rutang ito mula Manila, nagkaroon ang Cebu Pacific ng introductory seat sale.

Ngayong 2015, mayroong 6 overhaul flights ang Cebu Pacific. Ito ay isang napakagandang pagkakataon para sa long and short overhaul markets by 2016. At sa huli, ang tinatawag na base fares from Manila to Kuwait flights will amazingly start mula Php 1.00 which is exclusive of surcharges, fees and other taxes. But after its successful promotion, ito ay muling nagbalik sa Php4,999 from Manila to Sydney. Kasama dito ang fuel at iba pang surcharges. Ngunit, hindi pa kasama dito ang Philippine Travel Tax. Bilang karagdagan, ang susunod na price ceiling patungong Sydney ay Php 12,150 matapos ang matagumpay na seat sale ng Cebu Pacfic.
