MANILA, Philippines – The Cebu Pacific group achieved a new milestone by carrying more than 64,000 passengers in one day.

In a statement, Cebu Pacific vice president for corporate affairs Paterno Mantaring said the group carried a total of 64,684 passengers last Dec. 27, 2016 – the highest number of travellers it has ever flown in one day. It surpassed the previous record of 62,947 passengers flown in Jan. 3, 2016.

“This significant increase in number only shows our firm commitment in trafficking trade and tourism in all the destinations we operate in, while at the same time enabling everyJuan to connect with their families and friends all around the world,” Mantaring said.

In total, Cebu Pacific and subsidiary Cebgo carried a total 19.13 million passengers last year, four percent higher than the 18.38 million passengers served in 2015.

The higher passenger volume was largely driven by the airline’s low-cost short-haul services, and increased frequencies in key domestic markets.

Cebu Pacific saw passenger growth in international destinations such as Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen in China, Taiwan (Taipei), and Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.

In terms of local destinations, higher traffic was seen in Cauayan, Siargao and Ozamiz.

At present, Cebu Pacific offers flights to a total of 37 domestic and 29 international destinations across Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and the US.

Its 58-strong fleet is comprised of four Airbus A319s, 36 Airbus A320s, seven Airbus A330s, eight ATR 72-500s and three ATR 72-600 aircraft.

From this year until 2021, Cebu Pacific expects delivery of one more brand-new Airbus A330, 32 Airbus A321neos, and 13 ATR 72-600 aircraft.
