Will Seniors and PWDs also enjoy discounts on Promo Tickets?
There are two types of tickets you can buy in Cebu Pacific Airline:
- Regular Tickets
- Promo Tickets – which can either be categorized as “Year Round” or “Promotional Fares”
Based on the recent CAAP guideline, the discount on airfare is applicable for regular ticket only. Promo tickets are not included like piso fares and P1 base fare. You can compute kung saan makakamura ang senior citizen. Compare if the senior citizen passenger will enjoy lower fare if he/she will use his 20% discount privilege on a regular ticket, OR if the senior citizen will enjoy cheaper fare if he/she will avail of promo fares. Choose the best option.
If there is a Cebu Pacific piso fare promo 2018 available, without a doubt, availing the promo rate is cheaper VERSUS availing the 20% discount on a regular ticket for the same flight schedule.
Other airlines like Philippine Airlines, SkyJet, and Air Asia are also giving discounts to senior citizens and pwds for regular fare, this is in compliance with the law, and following the Civil Aviation Authority Board (CAAP) directive.
The discount is now available kahit online booking for Cebupac. Let our beloved seniors and pwds avail of the 20% discount and VAT exemption on airfare. Start booking discounted tickets!
