Cebu Pacific has unveiled plans to expand its
presence at Clark International Airport with the introduction of
daily flights between Clark and Davao, as well as between Clark
and Tagbilaran (Bohol) on 9 November 2018.
Cebu Pacific flight 5J 613, bound for
Tagbilaran, is scheduled to depart Clark at 09:55 and arrives at 11:20.
The return flight, 5J 614, is timed to depart Tagbilaran at 11:50 and
arrive back at Clark at 13:15.
Flights will depart Clark
for Davao (5J 985) at 13:45 with a scheduled arrival at the Francisco
Bangoy International Airport in Davao at 15:40. The return flight,
5J 986, departs Davao at 16:10, with an ETA at
Clark International Airport of 18:05.
"Cebu Pacific has been operating flights in and
out of the Clark International Airport since 2006. Since our
maiden Clark-Cebu route, we have not only expanded, but
consistently maintained our presence at the Clark airport. We
remain committed to helping play a pivotal role in the growth of
the Clark airport," said Atty JR Mantaring, Vice President for
Corporate Affairs of Cebu Pacific.
Clark International Airport has served as
the hub for North and Central Luzon of Cebu Pacific for the past
ten years. It has emerged as one of Asia's fastest-growing
airports, with passenger volume expected to breach two million in
Cebu Pacific operates direct flights from Clark to Cebu,
Singapore, Macau and Hong Kong; and will resume direct flights to
Caticlan (Boracay) by 28 October 2018.
On top of the new routes, Cebu Pacific will also
add an additional daily flight between Clark and Cebu starting
28 October 2019. From once daily, Cebu Pacific will fly between
Clark and Cebu once in the morning and another in the afternoon.
"The expansion of our Clark route network and
connecting this to our Davao hub will open opportunities for
commerce, entrepreneurs and domestic investments for Central
Luzon; while we anticipate that the Clark-Tagbilaran route will
help boost trade and tourism. This in turn, will help spur
economic growth and provide travelers with more route options to
get to their destinations," added Mantaring.
Aside from its Clark and Davao hubs, Cebu
Pacific operates flights out of five other
hubs in Philippines: Manila, Kalibo, Iloilo, Cebu and Cagayan
de Oro (Laguindingan).
The carrier operates to 37 domestic destinations, 76 routes and over 2,130
weekly flights. As of end-June 2018, Cebu Pacific flew 7.6 million
passengers, comprising 73% of the 10.4 million passengers flown
from January to June 2018.
