– Cebu Pacific will launch three new routes from Manila, Cebu and Davao from December.
– The carrier comes back on the route Davao-Singapore
Philippines’ largest low cost airline, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) is set to launch three new international routes from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, all on December 17, 2015. It will inaugurate direct flights from Manila to Fukuoka, Japan; from Cebu to Taipei, Taiwan; and, from Davao to Singapore in one day, opening up new markets for tourism and business.
“We look forward to seeing the ‘Cebu Pacific effect’ in the new routes we will operate. We’ve seen time and again how connectivity and CEB’s trademark low fares stimulated travel,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Lyog.
“It has always been our commitment to contribute to the country’s economic and tourism agenda. We will continue to develop our Philippine hubs to offer fast, affordable flights to more travelers across our network,” she said.
The airline will serve three times weekly the Manila-Fukuoka route. Fukuoka is the fourth destination to Japan for the budget airline after Osaka, Tokyo-Narita and Nagoya.
On the same day, CEB will relaunch Davao-Singapore, which will be served twice a week. The carrier used already to fly that route back to 2008. It will be the only international route out of Davao for Cebu Pacific. Finally, CEB will offer three times a week a non stop connection between Cebu and Taipei. The Taiwanese capital will be the sixth international destination out of Cebu Mactan International Airport for the airline. CEB already flights to Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul-Incheon, Busan and Tokyo-Narita.
All three routes will utilize CEB’s brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft fleet. CEB’s network now spans 63 destinations on 97 routes.
