It's ZERO Fare Once Again (International Destinations)


I don't blog anymore fare promotions for domestic destinations here in the Philippines as almost every week or biweekly there is a seat sale from one of the airlines. But now, it is worthy of my time to blog this news as low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific brings back the ZERO fare for all of its international destinations.

The promotional seat sale starts today up to August 27 and is valid for travel from September 16 to December 17, 2008.

As usual with all other airlines when having a seat sale, the Zero fare scheme does not include taxes and fuel surcharges which range from $46 to $90 depending on the destination. I am just dumbfounded after learning that only 35,000+ were allocated for this particular promotion. I'm just used to hearing that Cebu Pacific allocates for than 100,000 seats for its seat sales. I'm trying to make dummy bookings just to know how much the fares costs for my targeted destinations but I'm having difficulty searching for the dates that I want as not all flights display the ZERO fare promo. On the bright side, this particular seat sale made travelling outside the Philippines still more affordable even if the price of petroleum products are not yet stable.

@ the dong: Where are you going sa September? Mukhang masaya nanaman yan ah :)

@ grumpyurbanslacker: Yes, Cebu Pacific pulled out its flights to Hanoi due to poor load factor starting this month. Sayang, gusto ko pa naman bumalik sa Hanoi.

@ travelphilippines: That's a good deal na. Pero I'm hoping na bumaba na ang price ng jet fuel para naman bumaba na ang ticket price significantly.

@ grumpyurbanslacker: Try Air Asia, they have 1Million Free Seats, just pay for the taxes and your off to Hanoi
