Cebu Pacific Air to defer Zambo-S’kan service
KOTA KINABALU: Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) will postpone the launch of its service between Zamboanga City and Sandakan, Malaysia.
The service, plying between Zamboanga and Sandakan route four times weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays) starting October 29, 2017, was to be operated by Cebgo, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cebu Pacific, using its fleet of brand-new Aerei da Trasporto Regionale ATR aircraft.
“We apologize to all our partners, agents, suppliers, our stakeholders, and most importantly to all our guests who booked flights between Zamboanga and Sandakan for any inconvenience this postponement has caused.
“We had to make the difficult decision to postpone the launch of our Zamboanga-Sandakan service to give more time to work on operational details,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.
Passengers who booked a flight from Zamboanga to Sandakan, vice versa, or a round-trip ticket will be refunded in full.
In addition, CEB will give each passenger a round-trip travel voucher that they can use for any other short-haul international destination of Cebu Pacific.
“We remain committed to flying between Zamboanga and Sandakan. Cebu Pacific will continue to support the drive for seamless logistics connectivity within the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East Asia Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA).”
CEB flies to two other destinations in Malaysia - nine times weekly between Manila and Kuala Lumpur; and three times a week between Manila and Kota Kinabalu.
The Cebu Pacific route network comprises 25 international and 37 domestic destinations.
