Cebu Pacific Air has launched four times weekly flights between Manila and Guam, its first US destination, today.
Cebu Pacific Air is the only low-cost carrier flying directly between the Philippines and Guam.
“We are proud to operate our first route in the US today, which coincides with the month of our 20th anniversary. We share this excitement with Filipinos in Guam, who may now come home to their families more often, and with travelers from the Philippines, who aim to cross another destination off their bucket list,” says Alex Reyes, Cebu Pacific Air General Manager for Long Haul Division.
“We hope to strengthen trade and tourism between the Philippines and Guam, through faster, more affordable, and more accessible flights for everyJuan,” added Reyes.
Cebu Pacific Air Guam route operates every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, utilizing the airline’s brand-new Airbus A320 fleet. The non-stop service departs Manila at 3:45AM, arriving in Guam at 10:15AM. The return flight departs Guam at 12:30PM, arriving in Manila at 2:55PM.
Nathan Denight, Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager, remarked on the occasion, saying: “Cebu Pacific’s entry into Guam creates an opportunity to further connect our island and the Philippines. It also creates new and exciting ways to travel whether it’s for business or pleasure. Guam is the closest US destination from Asia, and serves as the gateway to Micronesia and other regions of the world. We look forward to partnering with Cebu Pacific in promoting tourism and our island paradise.”
The Manila-Guam service leads Cebu Pacific Air on another expansion path across the Pacific, further boosting a network that now spans over 90 routes on 64 destinations. Aside from Guam, Cebu Pacific Air also operates flights to Sydney, Japan, Korea, Dubai, and Doha, among others.
