This month, to further support the Philippine tourism industry and economy, we look forward to adding Boracay, Bohol, Kalibo, Dipolog, Tuguegarao, Bacolod and Roxas to the network,” the low-cost airline carrier said.

Cebu Pacific added that they also intend to operate limited international routes, namely Manila-Dubai-Manila, Manila-Osaka-Manila, Manila-Tokyo-Manila, Manila-Nagoya-Manila, and Manila-Singapore-Manila, as well as Manila-Seoul (Incheon) and Manila-Hong Kong.

It also assured to continue to mount all-cargo flights to ensure seamless transport of essential goods across the country and assist stranded guests as they continue to work with national and local governments.
