Cebu Pacific has unveiled plans to launch direct
flights between Cebu and Tokyo (Narita) in Japan.
The airline will launch four weekly flights
(every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) on 26 March 2015,
with the flight from Cebu departing at 05:55 to arrive in Tokyo at
11:20, while the return flight will depart Tokyo at 12:05 to arrive in
Cebu at 16:25.
The airline will operate the new route with Airbus A320
"Cebu Pacific has
a good track record of stimulating travel because of its low fares
and network. With this direct access to Cebu, we hope more
Japanese tourists will visit the Philippines, just in time for the
Visit the Philippines Year 2015," said Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and
Distribution, Candice Iyog.
Mactan Island in Cebu is an idyllic paradise located
roughly in the middle of the Philippines. It has long been popular
with Japanese tourists, and can also be used as a
jump-off point to other beach, diving and surfing spots where Cebu
flies to, such as Boracay, Camiguin, Siargao and Palawan (Puerto Princesa). The island of Bohol is also just a ferry away.
"This new route
also makes travel to Japan more convenient for those coming from
the Visayas and Mindanao. We are launching direct Cebu-Tokyo
flights just in time for the cherry blossom season in Japan. We
hope more Filipinos can plan their trips ahead and experience this
wonderful destination," Ms. Iyog added.
Cebu Pacific launched direct flights from Manila
to Tokyo (Narita) and Nagoya in March this year, and the airline
also flies from Manila to Osaka.
To celebrate the new route special fares start
from PHP2,488 for travel from 26 March to 31 May 2015.
