Cebu Pacific (CEB) will resume flights to Bali, Hanoi, and Sydney to bring the number of its international destinations to 16 by end-June as the Philippines’s leading airline continues to ramp up its frequencies in overseas routes with the easing of travel restrictions.
In May, CEB intends to operate twice weekly flights on the Manila-Hanoi-Manila and Manila-Bali-Manila routes. Thrice weekly flights to and from Sydney, Australia will restart in June.
CEB has resumed flying to six international routes – Bangkok, Fukuoka, Jakarta, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Ho Chi Minh — from January to April.
CEB also currently flies to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul (Incheon), Nagoya, Tokyo (Narita), Osaka and Guangzhou.
“We fully support the Department of Tourism’s initiatives to restore tourism. We would also like to congratulate the Department of Tourism (DOT) on hosting this year’s World Travel and Tourism Council Global Summit, our first major face-to-face event that signals international travel’s confident recovery,” Xander Lao, CEB chief commercial officer, in a press conference at the WTTC Global Summit.
“We invite Filipinos and foreign visitors to plan their travels to the Philippines and explore its beauty, or simply visit family and friends. We look forward to welcoming everyone onboard.”
Filipinos and foreign tourists can easily explore the Philippines through any of CEB’s 34 domestic destinations. The airline has also resumed more direct local flights from major hubs Cebu and Davao, as CEB restores 100 percent of its pre-pandemic domestic capacity this month.
“We are happy to keep enabling everyJuan to safely fly across our largest Philippine network. We are hopeful we can continue contributing to the economic and tourism agenda in and out of the Philippines,” Lao said.
Vaccinated travelers coming to the Philippines can fly easy by simply presenting their proof of vaccination and negative PCR swab or Laboratory based Antigen test result. For more information, passengers may refer to CEB Travel reminders page for the latest updates and complete travel guidelines to their destination.
CEB continues to offer its guaranteed low fares to stimulate travel across its widest domestic network in the Philippines. It continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety, while it operates with a 100 percent fully vaccinated crew, 90 percent of whom have been boosted.
