Cebu Pacific announced an additional frequency between Manila and Virac, Catanduanes, bringing its total number of flights to five times per week.
Utilizing a 156-seater Airbus A319 aircraft, Cebu Pacific operates the new Virac service every Thursday, beginning June 23, 2016.
Cebu Pacific also runs Manila-Virac flights every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The direct service boosts connectivity to the Bicol region, with Cebu Pacific already operating flights from Manila and Cebu to Legazpi, and Manila to Naga.
“Trade and tourism are cornerstones of Cebu Pacific’s business philosophy. For every flight we operate, we provide a means for travelers to contribute to these two crucial markets in the communities we serve. We thank local airport and government authorities for allowing us to help cultivate the economy in Catanduanes even further, with an additional flight to its capital municipality of Virac,” says Atty. JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Corporate Affairs.
Virac lies in the southern fringes of the province of Catanduanes, and is home to some of Bicol region’s breathtaking white beaches and unspoiled island coves.
The new flight will depart Manila at 8:15AM, and arrive in Virac at 9:20AM. The return flight will depart Virac at 9:50AM, and arrive back in Manila at 10:50AM.
Aside from Virac, Legazpi and Naga, Cebu Pacific operates flights to 31 other domestic destinations and 30 international destinations, out of six strategically placed hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Cebu, Clark, Davao, Kalibo and Iloilo.
