Smart Communications, the wireless service leader here in the Philippines, partners with the Philippines’ leading airline company, Cebu Pacific. This strategic partnership expands the network by providing the incoming tourists to contact their love ones back at home or even update their Facebook statuses or capture with their most favorite filter in Instagram.
Starting December 1, 2014, passengers aboard with the Cebu Pacific’s inbound international flights can purchase the Cebu Pacific Fun Data SIM powered by Smart Bro from the flight’s crew. With this deal, the Cebu Pacific would be the first airline in the country to offer a very useful travel product that caters the communication needs of the passengers. Cebu Pacific has 28 international flights and serves growing foreign tourism from South Korea, Japan, Australia and China. According to the Department of Tourism (DOT), there has been an increasing number of international tourists arrivals in the country. With that said, Smart would eventually tap into new markets and to different people around the world. “With international tourist arrivals expected to grow further in the coming years, we see a bright spot in targeting foreign travelers who want to experience what the Philippines has to offer,” said Michele Curran, First Vice President, Data and International Services at Smart. “Partnering with Cebu Pacific Air opens a wider market for Smart as they continually expand their route network to more countries worldwide.”
Inside the Cebu Pacific Fun Data SIM, a tourist can enjoy up to 1.5 GB worth of data which is a number of photos uploaded on Facebook and Instagram or even send a quick tweet or chat with friends and relatives abroad. Aside from the mobile data allocation valid for 15 days, the SIM also includes 100 text messages and 10 minutes of voice calls to all Philippine mobile networks, as well as discounted rates for international calls.
The LTE-capable SIM can be used with a variety of gadgets, since it is pre-cut for devices using regular, mini-, or nano-SIM slots. It is available for P500 per SIM pack.
