Cebu Pacific resumes international flights


Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’s leading carrier, on Thursday said it will mount flights to additional key Asian destinations in August as it rebuilds international operations.

Beginning August 4, CEB will increase its flight frequencies to Singapore from twice to thrice weekly, with Manila to Singapore operating every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Singapore to Manila will be every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

In addition, special commercial flights from Dubai to Manila are mounted every Wednesday, in response to the government’s call for assistance to repatriate workers in the Middle East while the travel ban remains in effect.

Flights between Manila and Seoul, South Korea have gone up from twice to thrice weekly with additional frequency on Monday, beginning August 16.

Starting August 22, CEB will be flying from twice to thrice weekly from Tokyo (Narita) to Manila, with additional frequency every Sunday.

Daily flights to Hong Kong from Manila will resume on August 11.

Other reinstated flights include flights to Nagoya, Osaka (Kansai) and Taipei, starting the week of August 14, with twice weekly flights for Nagoya and Osaka (Kansai); and weekly flights for Taipei to and from Manila.

“We remain cautiously optimistic as we gradually rebuild our international network,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience of Cebu Pacific.  “We recognize the need for non-leisure travel to these routes and we assure everyJuan that we are committed to keep prioritizing safety as we restore trust and confidence in air travel.”

Flight schedules may be viewed, and bookings made on the airline’s website.

The airline said travel regulations issued by the governments of the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan will be implemented.
