Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), the largest airline in the Philippines, wants to capture the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) market in the Middle East by offering air fares that are 50% lower than other airlines.
"œFilipino expats can fly home more often or their families can visit them in Qatar," CEB general manager for long-haul division Alex Reyes told Gulf Times. "œThis is why we offer seats as low as QR88."
The promotional fare until March 22 is up to 95% lower than fares offered by other airlines. Travel date is from June 4 to December 31.
After the seat sale, its lowest year-round fares between Manila and Doha will start at QR688, which is approximately 50% lower than other airlines.
With an estimated 200,000 OFWs working in Qatar, CEB gets the opportunity to be the only Philippine carrier flying Filipinos to and from Qatar once it launches its maiden flight in June.
