Cebu Pacific has launched twice weekly non-stop
flights between Manila and Doha, Qatar.
The non-stop service departs Manila every Monday
and Thursday at 21:35 to arrive in Doha at 02:45 the next day. The
return flight departs Doha every Tuesday and Friday at 04:15 to
arrive in Manila at 18:35.
The new route utilizes Cebu Pacific's brand-new
Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with a configuration of 436 all-economy
class seats. Hot meals, seats with extra legroom and Wi-Fi
onboard, among others, are options that can be added to the fare.
Santos, the Philippine Ambassador to Qatar, said, "Cebu Pacific's presence in Qatar will not only
benefit the more than 200,000 Filipinos, but also both Qataris and
the country's flourishing expat population who will now be more
enticed to visit the Philippines with its affordable rates. We are
hoping to tap Cebu Pacific as the embassy's partner in promoting
the Philippine tourism in Qatar."
Qatar has the third-largest Filipino community
in the Middle East where Cebu Pacific already serves the United Arab Emirates
with direct flights to
Dubai, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia via Riyadh. CEB is also the
only airline flying direct between Manila and Kuwait.
Badr Mohammed Al Meer, Chief Operating Officer at Hamad
International Airport, said, "As the gateway into Qatar and to the
rest of the world, we are glad to have the opportunity to
facilitate easy and convenient passage to the Philippines."
