Cebu Pacific launches 2 new international routes-A A +A
Wednesday, April 2, 2014
CEBU Pacific Air launched two new international destinations last March 30. The airline became the first Philippine low-cost carrier to operate direct daily flights from Manila to Tokyo (Narita), and four times weekly flights from Manila to Nagoya.
“We are very excited to finally be able to offer Cebu Pacific’s trademark lowest fares to these two new destinations in Japan. With our seat sales, seamless Manila airport terminal connection and extensive network, we hope to stimulate travel and bring Japanese tourists to various destinations in fun Philippines,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and distribution.
“Similarly, we hope these two new destinations will enable many Filipinos to explore Japan for leisure or business travel. Japan is now more accessible and more affordable with Cebu Pacific flights,” she added.
Lowest year-round fares start at P5,499. CEB fares to Nagoya and Narita are up to 70 percent lower than other full-service airlines.
CEB also operates daily flights between Manila and Osaka, for as low as P3,999.
On March 30, 2014, CEB launched daily services to Tokyo (Narita), using the airline’s brand-new Airbus A320 fleet. The flight departs Manila at 5:25am, arriving in Tokyo at 10:35am. The return flight departs Tokyo at 11:45am, and arrives in Manila at 3:45pm.
On the same day, CEB launched its Manila-Nagoya-Manila service, with a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday frequency. Departing Manila at 3:20pm, the flight arrives in Nagoya at 8:25pm. The return flight departs Nagoya at 9:10pm, and arrives in Manila at 12:10am the next day. (PR)
