Cebu Pacific Air is set to launch direct flights from Manila to Fukuoka, from Cebu to Taipei and from Davao to Singapore in one day, opening up new markets for tourism and business.
“We look forward to seeing the ‘Cebu Pacific effect’ in the new routes we will operate. We’ve seen time and again how connectivity and Cebu Pacific’s trademark low fares stimulated travel,” said Cebu Pacific Air VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
“It has always been our commitment to contribute to the country’s economic and tourism agenda. We will continue to develop our Philippine hubs to offer fast, affordable flights to more travelers across our network,” she said.
