Cebu Pacific said it continues to expand its route network from Clark International Airport, with the goal of boosting frequency by 75 percent by end-2018.
The budget airline said on top of two new domestic routes from Clark, it would also increase frequency of its flights between Clark and Macau from eight times weekly to 14 times a week.
The carrier earlier announced it would add an additional daily flight between Clark and Cebu starting Oct. 28, 2018. It would also add two new routes―between Clark and Davao and between Clark and Tagbilaran starting Nov. 9, 2018.
The new routes and additional frequencies will bring the total number of Cebu Pacific flights in and out of Clark to 3,711 by end-2018, representing 620,540 seats.
Cebu Pacific also mounts direct flights from Clark to Singapore and Hong Kong and will resume direct flights to Caticlan (Boracay) by Oct. 28.
“We are excited over the opportunities that our Clark hub presents and are looking forward to serving travelers from North and Central Luzon over the coming months. We are committed to being a partner in the over-all economic development of the Clark area through the expansion of our route network,” JR Mantaring, vice president for corporate affairs of Cebu Pacific, said.
