Cebu Pacific, the national flag carrier of the Philippines , has recently launched its direct service from Manila to Hanoi with two flights per week. The opening of the air route marks a very important milestone for Cebu Pacific as it becomes the only airline flying direct between Manila and Hanoi, said a Cebu Pacific representative at a press conference in Ho Chi Minh City on March 21. The direct route is also a step forward of the airline to the Vietnamese market and strengthening linkages between major cities in Southeast Asia, he added. In April 2008, Cebu Pacific inaugurated the Manila-HCM City direct route and is now operating daily flights between the two cities. According to Deputy Director of the HCM City Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism La Quoc Khanh, the opening of the Manila-Hanoi route and the upgrading of the Manila-HCM City flights have helped boost economic-trade cooperation and open up many business and investment opportunities between Vietnam and the … [Read more...] about Manila expands links with major cities
MANILA, June 16, 2011 (AFP) - Philippine budget carrier Cebu Pacific announced Thursday it had ordered 37 new Airbus jets worth $3.8 billion as part of ambitious plans to expand operations across the Asia Pacific. Cebu Pacific chief executive Lance Gokongwei said his airline was aiming to fly to new destinations such as Australia, building on an aggressive strategy that has seen it become the nation's top carrier in recent years. Gokongwei told a news conference his company had ordered 30 Airbus A321neo jets and seven A320s, to be delivered between 2015 and 2021, in what was the "largest single aircraft order ever made by a Philippine carrier". He said the airline also had another option for 10 more A321neo jets, which can carry more people and fly longer distances than the A320s that currently dominate Cebu Pacific's fleet. "These 220-seater aircraft will be a game changer for Cebu Pacific," Gokongwei said. "We will be able to serve cities in Australia, India and northern Japan, … [Read more...] about Cebu Pacific buys 37 Airbus jets worth $3.8 bn
That so few men made it to this refuge shows how dimly aware they were of the threat posed by Typhoon Haiyan, which crashed into the central Philippines on Friday with some of the strongest winds ever recorded. Many men stayed at their homes to guard against looters. Poorly enforced evacuations compounded the problem. And the bodies illustrate another, more troubling truth: the evacuation center itself became a death trap, as many of those huddling in the basement perished in a tsunami-like swirl of water. Those with the foresight to evacuate flimsy homes along the coast gathered in concrete structures not strong enough to withstand the six-meter (20-ft) storm surges that swept through Tacloban, capital of the worst-hit Leyte province. The aid, when it came, was slow. Foreign aid agencies said relief resources were stretched thin after a big earthquake in central Bohol province last month and displacement caused by fighting with rebels in the country's south, complicating … [Read more...] about Monster typhoon exposes an ill-prepared Philippines Dead bodies clog the basement of the Tacloban City Convention Centre. The dazed evacuees in its sports hall are mostly women and children. The men are missing.
