Cebu Pacific Air is slated to launch a four times weekly service between Manila and Guam on March 15, 2016.
Guam is the airline’s first US destination.
Cebu Pacific will be the only low-cost carrier flying direct between the Philippines and Guam.
“Having Guam in our network sets us off on another expansion path across the Pacific. With the launch of Guam, we offer fares that are up to 83% lower than other airlines. Fares this low can only mean more tourists to both countries, more Filipinos visiting home, and more opportunities for everyone,” said Cebu Pacific President and CEO Lance Gokongwei.
Recent data show that the Manila – Guam route is relatively underserved, compared to other destinations with smaller Filipino populations. There are approximately 5,900 weekly seats currently available between Manila and Guam. Cebu Pacific’s entry into the market adds 1,440 weekly seats to this pool, boosting air traffic between the two countries further.
Cebu Pacific’s Guam route will operate every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and will utilize the airline’s brand-new Airbus A320 fleet. The Manila-Guam service will depart at 3:45am and arrive in Guam at 10:15am. The Guam-Manila flight will depart Guam at 12:30pm and arrive in Manila at 2:55pm.
Cebu Pacific’s network now spans 64 destinations on 98 routes, including flights to Sydney, Doha, Beijing, Tokyo, Bali and Dubai.
