Cebu Pacific Air Turns 24!

We are the largest airline in the Philippines, in terms of domestic flights, routes and destinations, and constantly update our fleet to ensure that our aircraft remain reliable, safe and sustainable.

A message from Team Cebu Pacific:

So many successful business stories begin with the words “We never thought…”. But not ours. From the beginning, our founder, John Gokongwei Jr, always had big dreams for Cebu Pacific: to get everyJuan to fly.

Today, as we mark our 24th year in the air travel industry, we’re happy to report that we’ve made great strides toward the fulfilment of Mr John’s big dream. In 1996, our first year, we flew 360,000 passengers on 24 daily flights to just three destinations. Twenty-four years later, we’ve flown over 190 million passengers — a number that grows every day.

We are the largest airline in the Philippines, in terms of domestic flights, routes and destinations, and constantly update our fleet to ensure that our aircraft remain reliable, safe and sustainable. Through it all, we still offer a unique flying experience with the same spirit of friendship and fun that we started out with.

As we start our countdown to our first quarter-century in flight, we wish to thank all of you for continuing to choose us as your airline. We’re very grateful to every one of our passengers for helping realize our big dreams.
