Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific Air is increasing both frequency and capacity of its flights to Cebu, Davao, and Hong Kong while upgrading the aircraft used from an Airbus A320 to an A330.

The increase in frequencies comes as Cebu Pacific adds two brand-new aircraft to its fleet, the airline said in a statement.

Starting July 4, 2017, Cebu Pacific will be raising the frequency of its Manila-Hong Kong route by 50%, resulting in thrice-a-day flights, or a total of 21 flights a week, from the current twice a day.

The airline will be using the A330s to fly between Manila and Cebu three times daily, or 21 times a week, while the Davao hub will get a boost with two additional daily flights to and from Manila, bringing frequency to four times daily, or 28 weekly flights.

The upgrade from a 180-seater A320 to a 436-seater A330 adds 256 seats to each flight, or 59% more capacity.

“More seats and more flights in high-demand destinations will help lower fares for everyJuan. Moreover, using larger aircraft will make flying more efficient, freeing up some aircraft and slots at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This will also enable us to increase capacity and frequency for other routes moving forward,” Cebu Pacific vice president for corporate affairs Atty. JR Mantaring said.

The brand-new ATR 72-600 aircraft, on the other hand, will form part of the existing ATR fleet of wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo. The company recently announced five new domestic routes set to start operations in July, namely, Cebu to Masbate, Cagayan de Oro to Zamboanga, Davao to Dumaguete and Tacloban, and Zamboanga to Cotabato.

Cebu Pacific currently offers flights to 37 domestic and 26 international destinations, operating over 100 routes spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.
