Budget carrier Cebu Pacific is seeking authorization to operate a daily flight to New Zealand from the Civil Aeronautics Board which is scheduled to meet next month.
According to Alex Reyes, General Manager of Cebu Pacific’s long haul division, the carrier has the aircraft in place to fly direct to New Zealand. “We asked for daily frequency to New Zealand,” said Reyes. “We have aircraft with the range for a direct service to New Zealand. The market is attractive because of the growing Filipino community in New Zealand.” He added that the carrier plans to stimulate tourist traffic between the two countries.
