CEB president and CEO Lance Y. Gokongwei said, “Clark is the gateway for central and northern Luzon and CEB’s fourth operational hub. With aircraft based in Clark, Manila, Cebu and Davao, we can now offer the convenience of flying at affordable fares to every Juan across the Philippine archipelago.”
“Airline service will play a pivotal role in economic growth in Clark and CEB is committed to being a catalyst for this growth. Trade and tourism, among other things, generally prosper with increased accessibility,” Gokongwei said.

The new international services are introduced with a zero fare. The seat sale will run from September 4 to 10, 2008 and is valid for travel from November 8 to December 17, 2008. Passengers will only pay for the applicable taxes and surcharges, which are nonrefundable. More than 10,000 seats have been allocated for the Clark hub seat sale.
CEB is the only Filipino carrier operating international flights out of Clark and is the only airline offering a direct Clark-Hong Kong and Clark-Bangkok service.
After the seat sale, the lowest year round ‘Go’ fare for Clark flights start at P499 to Macau, P999 to Singapore, P1,499 to Hong Kong and P1,999 to Bangkok,
