Cebu Pacific's Michael Shau on planned growth from cebu and Clark

Recorded live at Routes Asia 2019, Cebu Pacific's chief operations officer Michael Shau discusses the growing carrier’s future strategy.

Speaking to delegates at Routes Asia 2019 in Cebu, Cebu Pacific's chief operations officer Michael Shau lifted the lid on the airline's growth plans over the coming years. 

Cebu Pacific, together with subsidiary Cebgo, operates an extensive network serving 66 domestic and 38 international routes, with a total of 2,583 scheduled weekly flights. From Cebu, it flies to a total of 27 domestic and five international destinations. 

During the interview, which was conducted by Routes News editor Ed Robertson, Shau revealed details of the carrier's plans to expand its route network from its hubs at Cebu and Clark this year on the back of increasing demand from tourists for more direct connections.

“There’s still a lot of opportunity for expansion within the Philippines - inter-island connections from key cities like Clark and Cebu. We believe that there is a significant untapped market in northern provinces in the Philippines," Shau said.
