Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) on Saturday announced it will start operating its Taiwan commercial flight service to and from Clark in Pampanga next month.
“The Philippines’ leading carrier, continues to strengthen its Clark hub by adding flights to Taiwan, allowing more Juans to experience its bustling night markets and delicious street food,” the CEB management said in a statement.
Beginning April 29, CEB will fly directly from Clark to Taipei four times weekly — every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Return flights from Taiwan will begin on April 30 and will operate four times a week — every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, the company said.
Taiwan is home to the famous Shilin Night Market which hosts a wide variety of souvenir shops and food stalls. The country is also popular for its vibrant city life and towering skyscrapers, including the 1,667 feet-tall Taipei 101.
Taipei is the latest destination to be included in Cebu Pacific’s growing Clark hub. Previously, the airline announced that it would start operating direct flights from Clark to Incheon, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Macau, Narita, and Singapore, and to seven destinations across the Philippines.
To support the expansion, CEB management will lease and base 3 aircraft at Clark International Airport. These are on top of the 10 new Airbus NEO aircraft that will be delivered in 2023 to expand the airline’s entire fleet.
The airline now flies to 34 domestic and 25 international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
