    21 of 33 Cebu Pacific destinations now open for leisure

    The Philippines’ leading airline Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) announces that majority of the destinations in
    its domestic network are already open for leisure travel.
    To date, 21 out of the 33 destinations are already accepting vacationing guests. The list includes famous
    beach destinations such as Boracay, Bohol, Camiguin, Coron (point-to-point bubble tourism), Cebu,
    Dumaguete, Puerto Princesa (bound for El Nido and San Vicente only), and Siargao; along with
    destinations that boast of gastronomic adventures namely Clark, Manila, and Roxas.
    “We are happy to share this update with everyJuan as we see more destinations in our country safely open
    up their borders. We firmly believe domestic tourism is the way to go – and we remain cautiously
    optimistic as we gradually ramp up our network to pave the way for domestic travel recovery,” said
    Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience.
    “We’ve said this before, and we want to say it again – making travel easier for the public will encourage
    them to fly during this time. On top of ensuring safe travels, we call on the industry to continue working
    together so we inspire more people to travel responsibly and fly easy,” added Iyog.

    Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific has attained a 100% vaccination rate for its active flying crew through COVID
    Protect, its employee vaccination program, in conjunction with various partnerships with LGUs all over
    the country.  
    CEB attained this milestone on schedule and in time for the expected increase in passengers in the coming
    months, following the easing of travel restrictions across the Philippines. 
     
    “We are very pleased to share this news with everyone as we prepare to ramp-up our domestic network to
    cater to the pent-up travel demand. CEB continues to boost its safety protocols and we know having a
    fully vaccinated crew will strengthen the trust and confidence of the public in air travel,” said Felix
    Lopez, Vice President for People Department at Cebu Pacific. 
    The COVID Protect program is part of the Gokongwei Group’s initiative for all its business units.
    Through this, CEB employees received free inoculation for themselves and their dependents, as well as
    third-party workers, such as check-in agents and bag handlers. 
    Apart from this conglomerate-led program, CEB also coordinated with various local government
    units during these past months to ensure its employees will be inoculated with whatever vaccine is
    available, at the earliest time possible.  
    “We commend our pilots and crew for voluntarily getting vaccinated, not only to protect themselves and
    their families, but even the passengers they fly with. We also express our gratitude to our leaders at the
    Gokongwei Group for spearheading the vaccination program, and of course, our government partners for
    recognizing the transport sector as a priority group,” said Capt. Sam Avila, Vice President for Flight
    Operations at Cebu Pacific. 
    Cebu Pacific’s entire workforce is now 98% fully vaccinated. As the first airline partner of the Ingat-
    Angat initiative, and as a major supporter in nation-building, CEB has been actively transporting vaccines

    from abroad to the Philippines, and across the country since March this year. To date, the airline
    has safely airlifted 16.5 million vaccine doses from China to the Philippines, and close to 25 million
    vaccine doses across 28 domestic destinations.
    CEB has achieved a 7-star safety rating from airlineratings.com for its COVID-19 compliance. It
    continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety as it endeavors to restore the public’s trust in
    air travel. 
    CEB operates the widest domestic network in the Philippines covering 32 destinations, on top of its eight
    (8) international destinations. Its 73-strong fleet, one of the youngest in the world, includes two (2)
    dedicated ATR freighters and one (1) A330 freighter.
