Cebu Pacific is to launch direct daily flights between Manila and Dubai on 7 October 2013.

Daily flights from Manila to Dubai are scheduled to depart at 16:40 (Manila time), while flights from Dubai to Manila depart at 23:10 (Dubai time). It will be the budget airline’s first long haul destination and 36th international route.

“Dubai is the largest long-haul market to and from the Philippines, so CEB is proud to be the only Philippine carrier to fly direct between Manila and Dubai. According to IATA PaxIS data, more than 70% of passengers on this route take multiple stops and connecting flights, so we definitely look forward to serving this market,” said Alex Reyes, Cebu Pacific General Manager, Long Haul Division. “Now, our passengers can enjoy fares that are up to 40% lower than current offerings, and fly direct to Dubai from Manila, a mere 9 hours away, via a CEB flight.”

CEB’s Dubai-Manila service will utilize Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with a configuration of more than 400 all-economy class seats. Guests can also enjoy OnAir Wi-Fi connectivity inflight.

CEB will lease up to 8 Airbus A330-300 aircraft for its long haul operations. The airline will take delivery of 2 Airbus A330 aircraft this year, and an additional 2 in 2014. The Airbus A330 has a range of up to 11 hours which means CEB could serve markets such as Australia, Middle East, parts of Europe and the US.

The airline currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 23 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. Between 2013 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 19 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders.

CEB flies to 32 domestic destinations, with hubs in Manila, Cebu, Clark and Davao. It also offers 21 international destinations, namely Bangkok, Bali, Beijing, Brunei, Busan, Guangzhou, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong, Incheon (Seoul), Jakarta, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Osaka, Shanghai, Siem Reap, Singapore, Taipei and Xiamen.
