Until December 2017, passengers flying between Manila and Guam, who pre-purchase a baggage allowance of 40 kilograms, will get a free additional 25 kilograms.
Guam is set to hold the Shop Guam Festival (SGF) this November, one of the biggest shopping events in the Pacific region. The event showcases Guam’s tax-free shopping, with incentives and other activities from the wide array of retail outlets on the island.
“We are pleased to partner with Cebu Pacific again to showcase our island. The hospitality of our Chamorro people with the Hafa Adai spirit is one of its unique qualities,” said Tony Muana, Jr., vice president of Guam Visitors Bureau. “Not only does Guam have great sightseeing and beaches, we also have many of the world’s best retailers amidst a wholesome family environment.”
“Guam offers one of the best shopping experiences in the region with its luxury brands, American heritage labels, and heavily-discounted shops. There is less reason to worry about excess luggage and more reason to enjoy holiday shopping,” said Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and distribution of Cebu Pacific.
Cebu Pacific started the Manila-Guam route last March 2016. Eighteen months later, tourism arrivals to Guam has surged with a total of 144,758 arrivals in August 2017 alone, and a total of over a million tourists from January to August 2017.
