With over 7,000 islands, 65% of all passengers in the Philippines used budget carriers last year. Topping the list of most used carriers is Cebu Pacific, the nation’s biggest low-cost operator, who had over 46% of the domestic market.

I for one only used Philippine Airlines just once because it’s more practical for me to fly with low-cost carriers whenever I travel so I am not surprised about the figures.

The new analysis by Amadeus also reveals that Philippines is the third fastest growing county in passenger traffic, following Peru, and Indonesia.

Philippines increased 14% while Peru and Indonesia increased 28% and 22%, respectively.
