Cebu Pacific Increasing Flights in Asia

With more flights, Cebu Pacific increases its presence throughout Asia.

As a result of the removal of COVID limitations, Cebu Pacific is launching flights from the Philippines to the northeast Asian hubs of Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Yesterday, low-cost airline Cebu Pacific made an announcement about expanding its flight schedule from its base at Mactan-Cebu International Airport. By June, Cebu Pacific will be flying more flights from its hub than it did before the pandemic because to the added services.

Beginning on June 23, Cebu Pacific will offer direct service between Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei and Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) (TPE). With the addition of the direct Mactan-Taipei service, Cebu Pacific will now offer flights from the airport to 23 domestic and five overseas destinations. Cebu is strengthening its ties with northeast Asia.

Cebu Pacific (Cebu) will enhance flight frequency to 11 of its destinations from CEB as part of its expansion at Mactan. The new and resumd flights will result in a 76,000 monthly capacity increase for Cebu at Mactan, a 21% increase.

In addition to the previously announced resume of flights to Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT) and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), an announcement was made yesterday. On March 26, service between Mactan and Hong Kong will restart; on May 1, service between Mactan and Tokyo Narita will begin. On on March 26th, Cebu will also launch a brand-new domestic direct service from Mactan to Naga Airport (WNP).

In addition to the 10 Airbus A320neos it will receive this year, Cebu is adding two more aircraft to its fleet at CEB to accommodate the growth. Candice Iyog, the airline’s chief marketing and customer experience officer, stated:

“As one of the top airports in Asia, Cebu Pacific is pleased to have its largest base outside of Manila. In order to connect more tourists with some of the best beaches and islands on the planet, we are thrilled to further develop our Cebu hub.”

The Philippines’ Luzon Island is home to Clark International Airport (CRK), where Cebu last week announced it was extending services. Similar to the newly established direct route to Taipei, Cebu is once more traveling north, this time to Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

Beginning on May 5th, a daily service will be offered. Flight 5J 176 will leave Clark International at 10:35 for a four-hour journey to Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Seoul, where it will arrive at 15:45. After spending an hour in the air in Seoul, it takes off as flight 5J 177 and lands at Clark Airport at 20:05.

There will soon be more aircraft.

The Clark-Seoul direct flight is advertised as being flown by an Airbus A320 with 188 seats on the Cebu website. Cebu’s nine A320neos have a seating capacity of 188, therefore this is most likely the aircraft type that will be traveling to Seoul, according to

ATR 72 turboprops, Airbus A320-200s, A321-200s, A321neos, and A330s make up the remaining 67 aircraft in the fleet. With 10 on order, Cebu will also be first in line to get the Airbus A321XLR when it goes into service in 2019. Cebu announced last week that it would lease and base three extra aircraft at Clark to assist the growth, emphasizing once more that these are not among the ten A320neos scheduled to come in 2023.

Cebu reinforced the Clark hub at the end of February by introducing more local and international flights and services. Cebu will now have six overseas destinations from Clark, in addition to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Macau, and Tokyo Narita, with the launch of the Seoul route. The LCC offers flights to 25 foreign and 24 local locations in Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
