CEB launches direct Manila-Camiguin flights


BUDGET carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) has announced the launch of its direct flights from Manila to Camiguin on November 15 and the resumption of its Cebu-Camiguin operations on November 9.

Cebu Pacific’s subsidiary Cebgo will operate the Cebu-Camiguin and Manila-Camiguin flights twice weekly using ATR planes.

“We are very happy to launch these direct flights in time with the gradual reopening of domestic tourism. Camiguin is another underrated gem that we believe travelers will enjoy discovering. At the same time, these direct connections will enable residents to fly to and from Cebu and Manila conveniently, be it for leisure or business purposes,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer at Cebu Pacific. 

The Island of Camiguin is known for its famous sandbar at White Island, the sunken cemetery, marine sanctuary, as well as its Lanzones Festival celebrated every October, among others.

Camiguin Island requires arriving tourists to create an account online and upload necessary documents such as a filled-out health declaration form, along with a proof of complete Covid-19 vaccination.

Travelers are also required to present a negative swab test result taken at least 72 hours before departure from Luzon and 48 hours from Visayas or Mindanao.

Tourists will need to upload proof of confirmed booking from an establishment accredited by the local government unit or a clearance from the Municipal Health Officer of the municipality if staying in a private home. Once complete, tourists need to download their ID with QR code and save a copy for presentation prior flight. 

All tourists will also need to take an antigen test on their fifth day at the island. 

CEB will begin operating twice weekly between Cebu and Camiguin on November 9 (every Tuesday and Saturday); and twice-a-week every Monday and Friday, beginning November 15, between Manila and Camiguin.
