Starting in the third quarter, Cebu Pacific plans to fly Australia as government permission was approved already. Flights to Australia would proceed even if the Southeast Asian market is oversupplied, which can generate losses. “Our philosophy has always been the same. We try to expand markets by offering lower fares,” Gokongwei said

In the fourth quarter, the airline will also fly to Saudi Arabia. Last October, the carrier launched its flights to Dubai flying 7 times a week. But, after a few months, the carrier decided to reduce flights to 5 times a week because of low passenger volume.
