Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Distribution at Cebu Pacific, said, “We are pleased to partner with one of the largest exchange houses in the UAE, with a vast network of branches. With this partnership, we’re able to provide more options to our customers which will make it even more convenient for them to avail our trademark year-round low fares.”

Passengers traveling to the Philippines on the Cebu Pacific direct Dubai-Manila flight can benefit from the airline’s domestic connectivity, the widest route network within the country.

“Our passengers’ interests have always been at the core of our operations. We are always keen on finding ways to better serve our customers – from offering a wide network of destinations to giving more payment solutions,” Iyog added.

The ease of accessibility provided by Al Ansari Exchange through its 188 branches locations across the Emirates, in addition to its quality customer service offers a hassle-free flight payment solution.
