We have identified 3 major competitors of Cebu Pacific which are: Philippine Airlines,
Zest Airways and Air Philippines and a large number of airlines. Based on the result, price and
service quality have the highest bearing since these two items determine the sales of the business.
Service quality has the heaviest weight because the Filipinos are mindful and have high
standards. They want to maximize their money for convenience and security. Based on the CPM,
Cebu Pacific Airlines is leading in the market as it got a total score of 3.45 because its major
strengths are its advertising and price.
EFE Matrix is based on the evaluation of Economic Analysis of the external factors
affecting the business in getting the potential opportunities and threats for Cebu Pacific Airlines.
Considering the above EFE, Cebu Pacific current competitive position or business strength
in the industry is above average. Over-all, it has been coping up well with the factors which can
positively or adversely affect its financial positioning, especially in the current period.
We recommend marketing penetration and Horizontal Integration as business strategies to be
used by Cebu Pacific Airlines. Market Penetration strategy seeks to increase market share for
present products or services in present markets through greater marketing efforts. This includes
increasing the number of pilots, increasing advertising expenditures, offering extensive sales
promotion of trip packages, or increasing publicity efforts. Also, Horizontal Integration aims to
merge with other airlines and used a market penetration. It is suitable to Cebu Pacific Airlines
because it currently opens new routes and establishes airport deals in domestically and
internationally.

Cebu Pacific Air is an airline company located at Ninoy Aquino International
Airport locally based here in Philippines. It offers booked flights to both domestic and
international destinations. The airline is a subsidiary of JG Summit Holdings and its
current Chief Executive Officer is Lance Gokongwei.
Cebu Pacific was established on August 26,1988 then later on started its
operations on March 8, 1996 with a promise to give "low fare, great value" to
everyone who wanted to fly. The airline was established on August 26, 1988, and
3

started operations on March 8, 1996. Republic Act No. 7151, which grants franchise
to Cebu Air, Inc. was approved on August 30, 1991. Cebu Air, Inc. was subsequently
acquired by JG Summit Holdings. Domestic services commenced following market
deregulation by the Philippine government. It temporarily ceased operations in
February 1998 after being grounded by the government due to an accident, but
resumed services later the next month following re-certification of its aircraft. It
initially started with 24 domestic flights daily among Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and
Metro Davao. By the end of 2001, its operations had grown to about 80 daily flights
to 18 domestic destinations.
After offering low fares to domestic destinations, CEB launched its international
operations on November 2001 and now flies to Bangkok, Busan, Guangzhou, Ho Chi
Minh, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Osaka, Seoul,
Shanghai, Singapore and Taipei. In short, destinations, where one can go shopping
and sightseeing!
To get every Juan to more places everyday, CEB operates a fleet of 33 Airbus (10
A319 and 23 A320) and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft, the youngest fleet in the Philippines.
With the completion of the re-fleeting program, our capacity has doubled.
CEB offers the lowest year round Lite Fares for its destinations. CEB remains to
be the pioneer in creative pricing strategies as it manages to offer the lowest fare in
every route it operates.
Cebu Pacific is not just the leader in low fares but also in innovation and
creativity! CEB is the first local airline to introduce e-ticketing, prepaid excess
baggage and seat selection in the Philippines. Guests have also learned to anticipate a
uniquely upbeat flying experience with CEB, as this is the only domestic carrier that
offers fun in the skies with its games on board popularly known as Fun Flights,
together with its entertaining inflight magazine Smile.
CEB also partnered with various destination hotels, car rental service, travel
insurance and entertainment ticketing service, to provide its guests a more convenient
travel experience. On time performance, schedule reliability and a smooth,
comfortable flight are just some of the things that the air-traveling public has come to
expect from Cebu Pacific.
In the 2000s, Cebu Pacific was granted rights to operate international flights to the
region, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Hong
Kong, and Guam. International flights were launched on November 22, 2001, with a
twice-daily service to Hong Kong. On March 1, 2002, it commenced thrice-weekly

launched its direct flight from Cebu to Singapore on October 23, 2006, the first lowcost airline to serve the Cebu-Singapore-Cebu sector, and in direct competition with
Singapore Airlines' subsidiary SilkAir, CEB is now the only Philippine carrier serving
the Cebu-Singapore-Cebu route after PAL terminated its direct service. The airline
operates direct flights from Cebu to Hong Kong which commenced October 2, 2006,

route after PAL terminated its direct service and is now code-sharing with Cathay
Pacific for this route. In May 2005, Cebu Pacific received two Airbus A320 aircraft
on lease from CIT Leasing and operated its first service with the new aircraft on June
3, 2005, from Manila to Davao City. In December 2006, after a month or two of
operating the new direct flights, Cebu Pacific announced that it would increase flight
frequency for its Cebu-Hong Kong-Cebu from four to five times weekly and CebuSingapore-Cebu flights from four to six weekly effective January 25, 2007. As of

denied. The nations involved came to an agreement that Cebu Pacific would be only
allowed to operate charter flights from Clark to the respective countries' airport(s).
Only Singapore initially agreed to allow Cebu Pacific to fly scheduled flights from
Clark to Singapore. Currently Cebu Pacific only operates a route from Clark to Cebu,
but has since announced that it will be commencing international flights from Clark

flights from Clark to Cebu. In June 2007, Cebu Pacific announced an order of up to
14 brand-new ATR-72-500 aircraft, with six firm orders and eight options. It plans to
initially offer flights to Boracay, using Boracay's Godofredo P. Ramos Airport.

International Airport as its fourth hub. Cebu Pacific announced that it would initially
fly internationally from Davao to Singapore, Hong Kong and fly one domestic flight
to Iloilo. Both direct services from Davao to Singapore and Iloilo commenced on
May 8, 2008, while the service to Hong Kong commenced on May 9, 2008.

non-stop flights to the United States West Coast, Houston, Texas and Chicago, Illinois

firm order to 10. On February 19, 2008, Cebu Pacific Air received its first brand-new

Ninoy Aquino International Airport with its flight to Caticlan being the first to depart
at 0515 local time. On August 1, 2008, it moved its international operations to the
terminal; thus, becoming the first airline to have regular international commercial
flights from the new terminal.

media. On January 6, 2011, Cebu Pacific flew its 50 millionth passenger from Manila

Singapore Airlines including other domestic airlines. Cebu Pacific will commence
international long-haul flights to Middle-East, U.S.A., Australia and some parts of
Europe on third quarter of 2013 using Airbus A330-300.
In October 2010, EU aviation authorities visited the Philippines to conduct safety

The external factor terrorism is the most important because no matter how cheap and
grandeur our fare is, it will not attract customers if terrorism is rampant. There is a
situation in a Middle-eastern country where their airline industry was severely
affected by the frequency of terrorist attack blowing the airplane. This factor, if
addressed properly by the government, will benefit not only the airline industry, but
the whole populace as well.

D. Industry Analysis

Air travel remains a large and growing industry. It facilitates economic growth,
International investment, world trade and tourism and therefore is one of the main
proponent of globalization. Airline companies have three main goals, providing good
service to the customers, returning the investment with an increase to their
shareholders, and lastly providing sustenance to nations economy. Airline Industry
must not only take in priority the goal they have set up for their company but also the
dynamics that affect the improvement and success of their industry. Such as their
airport capacity, route structures, technology, cost to leave or buy the aircraft. There
are also some unpredictable dynamics that when unprepared can affect the whole
industry like the weather that is irregular especially in Philippines where there are
typhoons all year round. Fuel cost is also a main factor in the dynamics that could
change the entire industry. Fuel is also the second largest expense and a significant
portion of an airline total cost. The largest expense an airlines incur is labor that the
airline must pay to pilots, flight attendants, dispatchers, bagger handlers, and others.
The Airline industry must always put in mind the key factors that affect their
success. The customer satisfaction, Competitive rates, Technology, Airworthiness,
and the destination.
Truly the industry have come from a long way, from 1952 wherein the Civil
Aeronautics Act was passed by the Philippine Government up to 2010 where it was
renowned that the growth in air travel rose up to 10%, it was also the time wherein
there new revenue streams, and new channel of markets. It was also the year wherein
the technology have taken up into a new level and has become a competitive
advantage. By this year consumers have been opting for more customers self service
and the IT industry have seen a major transformation.
There are also some external factors that affect the industry such as the Civil
Aviation Authority of the Philippines. It establish the prescribe rules and regulations
for the inspection and registration of aircraft owned and operated in the Philippines
and all air. Facilities.
The Airline Industry in Philippines consist of many competitors the primary and
the National flag carrier of the Philippines is the Philippine Airlines. Its major activity
is to provide air transportation for passengers and cargo within and outside the
Philippines. They take off to the most popular domestic jet routes and international
and regional points that visited by Filipinos or provide a good source of visitors to the

virtually all domestic services excluding routes operated from Manila, reducing the
size of its fleet and terminating the jobs of thousands of employees. The airline was
placed under receivership in 1998, gradually restoring operations to many of the

J.

Business Level Strategy


There are four generic strategies that are used to help organizations establish a
competitive advantage over industry rivals. Those are Overall Low-Cost Provider
Strategy, Broad Differentiation Strategy, Focused Low-Cost Strategy, Focused
Differentiation Strategy and Best-Cost Provider Strategy. Cebu Pacifics main goal is to
provide an opportunity for everyone to travel anywhere and everywhere they wanted with
a fun-filled experience that is conveyed with passion for excellent service, using a
strategy that imbibes certain characteristics of the other type of competitive strategies, but
more dominantly combines strategic emphasis on low cost and differentiation.
20

Cebu Pacific will use Best-Cost Provider strategy because goes well with the
companys objective which is to become global, offer premium service that will attract
customers, becoming their preferred airline that will meet customers' needs. Using BestCost Provider strategy can attain a competitive edge over rivals in hitting a broader
market which is composed majority of consumers seeking for a low cost opportunity to
travel.
Aside from focusing in using a low-cost strategy Cebu Pacific also push into
achieving it through maintaining tight control over production and overhead costs but still
provide with an upscale product at much lower cost than the competitor in the airline
industry. Because of this advantages are competitors are likely to avoid a price war, since
the low cost firm will continue to earn profits after competitors compete away their
profits especially in airline industry. also powerful customers that force firms to produce
goods/service at lower profits may exit the market rather than earn below average profits
leaving the low cost organization in a monopoly positions. Buyers then loose much of
their buying power. It is also hard for new entrants to move in the industry because low
cost leaders create barriers to market entry through its continuous focus on efficiency and
reducing costs.
Aside from that using this strategy also improve Cebu Pacifics ability to adapt to
environmental changes, learn new skills and technologies, and more effectively leverage
core competencies across business units and products lines which should enable the firm
to produce produces with differentiated features at lower costs.
Cebu pacific will also use under market penetration such as effective advertisements will
be made for the Cebu pacific in the TV and radio ads, print newspapers and magazines.
There will also have an establishment of Research and Development (R&D) Unit which
has a special economic significance apart from its conventional association with scientific
and technological development. R&D investment generally reflects a governments or
organizations willingness to forgo current operations or profit to improve future
performance or returns, and its abilities to conduct research and development. Some
Secondary Strategies Cebu Pacific could use is Under Horizontal Integration which will
have to do with Merging with other Airlines. In microeconomics and strategic
management, the term horizontal integration describes a type of ownership and control. It
is a strategy used by a business or corporation that seeks to sell a type of product in
numerous markets. Horizontal integration in marketing is much more common than
vertical integration in production. Horizontal integration occurs when a firm in the same
industry and in the same stage of production is being taken-over or merged with/by
another firm which is in the same industry and in the same stage of production as of with
the merged firm. Cebu Pacific has a good financial position therefore; it has the capacity
to merge with another hotel company in the industry. If Cebu Pacific merge with another
21

airline, it would be possible for both companies to compete not only in the Philippine
industry but also with the other foreign countries as well.
Renovation of Cebu Pacific facilities to a more modern and futuristic style can
also affect some good impact to consumers. New facilities design and development is
more than often a crucial factor in the survival of a company. In an industry that is fast
changing, firms must continually revise their design and range of facilities. This is
necessary due to continuous technology change and development as well as other
competitors and the changing preference of customers. A system driven by marketing is
one that puts the customer needs first, and only produces services that are known to
customers. Market research is carried out, which establishes what is needed. If the
development is technology driven then it is a matter of changing what it is possible to
make. The facilities are developed so that hotel processes are as efficient as possible and
the services are technically superior, hence possessing a natural advantage in the market
place.

Financial Strategy, Information Management Strategy and Manufacturing Strategy. These


functions are an important aspect in developing a strategic business plan because the
success of the company will depend in the planning for different department for specific
functions.
Marketing Strategy Marketing strategy deals with Pricing, selling and distributing a
Product. Here the companies use 2 types of strategies: Market Development. And Product
Development. In Market Development a Company or a Business Unit: Capture larger
market share of an existing market-Market saturation and Market Penetration Develop
new markets for current products
Research and Development Department is of great importance in business as the level
of competition, production processes and methods are rapidly increasing. It is of special
importance in the field of Marketing where companies keep an eagle eye on competitors
and customers in order to keep pace with modern trends and analyze the needs, demands
and desires of their customers.
There will also have an improvement of quality standard services. This means by
providing the best attention to the customer and addressing his or her needs or the

utmost levels of customer satisfaction. Once our hotel is appreciated, we will continue to
maintain this high level of commitment, by providing the optimum level of service and
assistance whenever and wherever needed.

L.

Implementation Plan

23

Base on our rigorous research and calculations we have chosen the Market
penetration as our primary strategy and as for our secondary strategy, we have chosen the
Horizontal Integration. Market Penetration strategy seeks to increase market share for
present products or services in present markets through greater marketing efforts. This
strategy is widely used alone and in combination with other strategies. Market strategies
include increasing the number of salespersons, increasing advertising expenditures,
offering extensive sales promotion items, or increasing publicity efforts.
The actions that we will apply to penetrate the market is to have an intensive
promotional publicity stunt and TV commercials for Technological factors like high tech
facilities and fleets. Horizontal Integration refers to a strategy of seeking ownership of or
increased control over a firms competitors. It is a strategy used by a business or
corporation that seeks to sell a type of product or services in numerous markets.
Horizontal integration occurs when a firm is being taken over by, or merged with, another
firm which is in the same industry and in the same stage of production as the merged
firm. The action that we will apply to increase control over other competitors is to merge
with other hotels. With financial position of Cebu Pacific, it has the capacity to merge
with other hotels and still be able to take control.

M. Monitoring and Controlling System

Executives of multibusiness firms are increasingly using management control systems to


align corporate strategy with organizational structure to create synergies across business
units. Senior managers find that it is no longer practical to expend vast resources to
continually restructure their organizations in order to align with changes in strategy and
environmental conditions. Instead, more organizations are learning a far more effective
approach chooses an organizational structure that works without major conflicts, and then
design to align that structure with strategy. The Monitoring and Controlling System presents
an overview of the strategic control process. The system deals with the decisions needed to
evaluate and control the strategic plan and corporate performance of a company. Essentially,
controlling involves the measurement and correction of activities of subordinates to make
sure that objectives and plans to achieve them are being accomplished. Control Systems and
Techniques, includes various control systems and techniques. It presents the elements of
controlling, production and financial control, human resource control, and organizational
change and development. It emphasizes the importance of developing an integrated control
system which enables managers to monitor the performance of all resources devoted to the
achievement of organizational performance. Information is the foundation of management
control and spectacular advances in computer technology have opened new vistas for
information systems and, hence, control.

24

N. Performance Evaluation

A performance appraisal is a method by which the job performance of an employee is


evaluated. Performance appraisals are a part of career development and consist of regular
reviews of employee performance within organizations. Whether or not an employee's
compensation is directly tied to performance, effective performance evaluation is a crucial
component in ensuring organizational success. Done correctly, performance evaluation can
be a manager's best friend. Conversely, a poorly developed system, or one that is not
appropriately applied, will cause enormous harm to an organization. Working closely with
managers and employees to establish job-relevant evaluation criteria. Using focus groups to
create behavioral anchors to guide the rating system. Facilitating the development of
measurable outcomes to support goal-based systems. Providing options for integrating
performance evaluation with pay decisions, if desired. Establishing a protocol for addressing
performance issues and complete discussion of the importance of, and methods for,
rewarding and promoting positive performance
