CEBU Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ leading airline, has restored 92% of its pre-pandemic system-wide capacity following the continuous increase of its domestic and international routes.

The airline now flies an average of 355 flights a day, covering 34 domestic and 19 international destinations. This is equivalent to about 64,000 seats offered in a day.

To date, CEB has restored over 100% of its pre-pandemic domestic capacity, surpassing the airline’s December 2019 level.

CEB flew 13.3 million passengers from January to November 2022, up 493 percent from the same period in 2021, as people rushed back to travel following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

“Our system-wide capacity is now approaching pre-pandemic levels. We’ve basically grown, in fact, much more than what we were doing pre-COVID in the domestic level. We are seeing green shoots of recovery. It is very encouraging to see more people confidently flying again, not just within the Philippines but even abroad,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer at Cebu Pacific.
