CEBU PACIFIC DOUBLES FLIGHTS TO SEOUL

Manila, June 16, 2003 (Star) To support the country’s tourism efforts and meet growing market demand, Cebu Pacific (CEB) has added two flights to its present twice-weekly service between Cebu and Seoul.

The airline also flies between Manila and Seoul twice weekly, as well as Manila and Hong Kong daily.

"Korean arrivals for the first trimester of 2003 grew significantly from last year in spite of the SARS problem. We expect arrivals to further grow especially with the problem having been successfully contained here," said Peggy Vera, Cebu Pacific VP for corporate planning and external affairs.

CEB began servicing the Manila – Seoul route in 2002. In December of the same year, it started its Cebu – Seoul service. The additional Cebu-Seoul flights are extra sections, which are additional flights to meet demand that regular frequencies cannot cope with. Such flights need special government approvals.

Vera said the additional flights are "part of the commitment we made to our city namesake to aggressively push tourism in Cebu," said Vera.
