More Filipino passengers head home for the holiday season with Cebu Pacific

by | Feature, Lifestyle

The mid-month of December ushers the Christmas rush not only across shopping centres – it also brings thousands of Filipinos and expats to the airport as they head back to their respective countries to celebrate their Christmas together with their loved ones.

With Cebu Pacific in the market, more Filipinos are now able to head home as the low-cost carrier flies not only to Manila, but towards other major points in the Philippines such as Cebu, Davao, and more! With a country-wide coverage, Cebu Pacific positions itself as a flexible airline capable of bringing Filipinos closer to their families whenever they wish to do so.

“Nakabook ako ng ticket kahit na sobrang last minute ako naghanap kaya ngayong darating na Disyembre ay makakarating ang mga magulang ko dito sa Dubai,” said Jam Casupanan, an admin assistant in Dubai.

Filipinos laud Cebu Pacific’s service and rates that allow them to not only go home to the Philippines, it also enables them to bring their family here. “Nakabook ako ng ticket kahit na sobrang last minute ako naghanap kaya ngayong darating na Disyembre ay makakarating ang mga magulang ko dito sa Dubai,” said Jam Casupanan, an admin assistant in Dubai.

Filipinos no longer need to struggle saving up money just to head home since there were limited airline choices here in the UAE.

“Wala na akong ticket na ma-book sa mga airlines na pinuntahan ko sa araw na gusto naming makauwi ang buong pamilya, hanggang sa nabanggit ng isang kaibigan ang maganda nyang karanasan sa Cebu Pacific. Salamat at nakinig ako sa kanya, nakuhaan namin ng ticket pauwi ang buong pamilya pa-Pinas,” said Maria Piatos, who works in Dubai as a customer service executive.

Through Cebu Pacific’s daily flights and affordable tickets even during the Christmas season, they now find it easier to book their tickets and “Make Moments Happen” together with their loved ones the moment that they land home.

Now, instead of heading home only after two, three or even five or more years, Filipinos and their families now create more memories together in the Philippines every year – with some even flying home as frequent as every 6 months!

“Malaki ang naitulong ng Cebu Pacific para makapiling ko ang mga mahal ko sa buhay dahil sa mababa nilang presyo. Malaki ang natipid ko sa pag uwi lalo na ngayong araw ng kapaskuhan,” said Ren Betita, a customer service executive in Dubai.

Christmas is indeed the best time of the year to spread love and happiness between families and friends – and there’s nothing better than the gift of your presence together with those who you hold dear. With Cebu Pacific’s travel options, it’s not too late to book your own ticket to fly back home to festive lights, sounds, and sights of Christmas in the Philippines.
