Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier, further strengthens its Cebu hub by adding three routes from Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA), allowing every Juan to reach more destinations to and from the Queen City of the South.

“We are excited to operate new routes from our second largest base, Cebu, as we mark our 27th anniversary in March. This is in line with our commitment to bring every Juan closer to each other as we make air travel more affordable and accessible to our customers,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific President and Chief Commercial Officer.

Starting March 26, CEB will begin flying from Cebu to Naga four times weekly — on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays — making it the only carrier to operate flights directly between the two destinations.

DG 6316 will depart from MCIA at 12:00 PM and will arrive in Naga at 1:45PM, while the return flight, DG 6137, will leave Naga Airport at 2:05PM and will arrive in Cebu at 3:50PM.

The airline will also resume daily flights from Cebu to Hong Kong beginning March 26. CEB 5J 240 is scheduled to depart from MCIA at 6:05AM and will arrive in Hong Kong at 8:55AM. Its return flight, 5J 241, is set to fly from Hong Kong International Airport at 9:40AM and will arrive in Cebu at 12:35PM.

From May 1, 2023, CEB will also restart its flights from Cebu to Narita seven times weekly.

CEB 5J 5062 will depart from MCIA at 2:20AM and will arrive in Tokyo at 8:10AM (Japan time). 5J 5063, its return flight, is scheduled to depart Narita International Airport at 8:55AM (Japan time) and arrive in Cebu at 1:20PM (PH time).

With three additional routes, CEB will have direct flights to 23 domestic and four international destinations from Cebu.

To encourage people to travel, CEB is running a special seat sale allowing passengers to book their flights from Cebu to Naga, Hong Kong, and Narita, and vice versa until March 1, 2023 for as low as PHP1 one-way base fare, exclusive of surcharges and fees. Travel period is from March 26 to October 28 for Cebu-Naga and Cebu-Hong Kong flights, and from May 1 to October 28 for Cebu-Narita flights.

CEB is set to restore 100% of its pre-COVID network and capacity in March 2023. It now flies to 34 domestic destinations and is set to reinstate all its 25 international destinations in the first quarter of the year.
