The Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) on Wednesday announced it is operating more flights this month to accommodate the increasing number of travelers going to and from Dubai, and at least seven Asian countries.
The CEB management said it is coming up with more international flights to Bali, Bangkok, Dubai, Fukuoka, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Taipei.
The airline is also set to resume its direct Davao-Singapore flight on Oct. 30, making it the first Philippine carrier to restart international operations from Davao since the pandemic lockdown.
Flight operation at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to and from Kota Kinabalu will also resume beginning Oct. 31.
“We are happy to add more flights to international destinations as we see greater demand for leisure travel abroad, leading up to the holiday season. We hope to reopen more flights as we anticipate other countries to ease restrictions soon,” Xander Lao, CEB chief commercial officer, said in a statement.
CEB currently flies direct to 19 international destinations, including Brunei, Narita, Nagoya, Osaka, Guangzhou, Seoul, and Sydney.
Airline officials said the CEB continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety while operating with 100-percent fully vaccinated crew, 95 percent of whom have received booster shots.
