You’ve heard airlines described as elegant, classy, safe, and – on some frustrating occasions – cramped and delayed! But I’d be willing to bet you’ve never heard an airline described simply as ‘fun’? Well, that’s exactly how I’d define my experience as a passenger flying high in the sky with Cebu Pacific Airlines. Everybody knows the Filipino travel tagline “It’s more fun in the Philippines”, so it’s only fitting the countries’ leading domestic carrier be as far from boring as humanly possible! As a budget, no frills airline (now flying direct from Sydney to Manila), you’d imagine the experience might be a bit of a bleak one. Get on, knock yourself out with some Valium and get the hell off. Not the case. As the following list explains, there are more than a few awesome reasons to fly Cebu Pacific Airlines to the Philippines (and domestically while you’re there). And for the price of a dinner out, you’d be silly not too.
5 Reasons To Fly Cebu Pacific Airlines to the Philippines
No Entertainment System Doesn’t Mean No Fun
Cebu Pacific Airlines are well know for their in-flight interactive games. And when I say interactive, I don’t mean iPads or entertainment systems. What I’m referring to is good old-fashioned verbal quizzes… do you remember those from school? During each flight, the air hostess’ will ask the passengers a series of questions about the carrier, and award prizes to the winners. On occasion, they’ve also been known to dance and sing mid-flight. Case in point:
Largest Philippine Flight Network
CEB has flights to more destinations and routes with higher flight frequency within the Philippines than any other airline – which means if you really want to find that deserted island then a CEB flight is your best chance to get there! CEB also operates flights to 29 cities in 18 countries in North Asia, ASEAN, Australia, and the Middle East.
Beyond Cheap Flights
You can fly from Sydney to Manila direct for as little as $143 return. Yes, you did read right. But being el cheapo doesn’t mean they skimp on safety – CEB has had an immaculate safety record for 10 years.
The New Website Is Super Easy To Navigate
The Cebu Pacific Airlines website is fun, fast and easy to navigate. Bookings are complete within minutes and help is always a phone call away.
Friendly, Hospitable Service
I was once on a low-budget carrier in Australia (*cough* won’t name names), and the air-hostess practically threw me the food I ordered and paid for with such hostility it was as if I was inconveniencing her with my terribly complex request. That type of scenario won’t happen on Cebu Pacific Airlines. The cabin crew embody the signature Filipino hospitality and always have a smile on their face!
