MANILA – Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) announced Monday it is boosting its Clark hub with three additional planes and operating 13 international and domestic destinations.

Via Clark, CEB flies to Caticlan, Davao, Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod in the Visayas; General Santos City and Cagayan de Oro in Mindanao; and Puerto Princesa City, Palawan in Luzon.

“We are excited to reestablish our presence in such an important gateway that will boost accessibility and connectivity for the traveling public. Furthermore, it allows us to boost our third operating hub in the Philippines that will help generate economic opportunities to support the country’s growth agenda,” CEB president Xander Lao said in a statement.

Those traveling to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Narita and Macau can fly directly from the Clark International Airport in Pampanga.

CEB will hire an additional 140 personnel -- pilots, cabin crew, ground staff -- for the Clark hub, thereby producing more job opportunities, especially for the locals.

To encourage more people to travel, CEB said it is conducting a seat sale from Feb. 27 to March 1 on all its flights to and from Clark for as low as PHP1 base fare. (PNA)
