Bye Bye Cebu Pacific
I just came to know that Cebu Pacific will halt their operation in the Middle East due to competition. We saw the news via Facebook post and after searching the internet I found the article made by Sunstar advising the suspension of Cebu Pacific in the middle east. What is not clear to me is that Cebu Pacific did not post any information in their website.
I am actually flying to Manila this June and I am boarding with Cebu Pacific. It is good that I was not able to buy the ticket for my Manila-Riyadh Flight. I remember posting about Cebu Pacific in this blog about 4 years ago when they are still starting in the Middle East.
Cebu Pacific is the cheapest flight that can be found having the flight to Manila-Riyadh and Vice Versa.
For more information check the post of Sunstar:
CEB will fly the last of its four-times-a-week service from Manila to Kuwait on June 13, and its Kuwait-Manila flight on June 14. The thrice-weekly Manila-Doha-Manila route will have its last flight on July 1; while CEB’s last flight from Manila to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia will depart on July 2, while the Riyadh-Manila flight will leave on July 3.
So for now, to those Filipinos staying in the middle east, let’s hope that there will be other flights where we can get a cheap fare to Manila. Cebu Pacific is of great help to Filipinos going for an emergency exit due to its cheap airfares.
And for me, I need to check other flights from Manila-Riyadh and need to be hurry because I am sure that it will increase the airfare. It is a simple law of supply and demand.
