Cebu Pacific to Launch New Flights from Clark International Airport in Philippines

Cebu Pacific has unveiled plans to launch three new domestic routes from Clark International Airport.

The low cost airline will mount daily flights between Clark and Iloilo, as well as between Clark and Bacolod, starting 9 August 2019.

Beginning 9 October 2019, Cebu Pacific will launch daily flights between Clark and Puerto Princesa in Palawan.

"There's still a lot of opportunity for expansion within the Philippines - inter-island connections from key cities like Clark and Cebu. We believe that there is a significant untapped market in northern provinces in the Philippines. Creating direct links between domestic destinations and our other hubs will spur tourism and movement of goods and investments, whilst doing away with having to pass through the main hub in Manila," said Michael Ivan Shau, Chief Operations Officer 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 breaching 2.5 million in 2018. Over the past six months, Cebu Pacific has boosted frequency in Clark by over 75%, with direct connections to Cebu, Caticlan, Tagbilaran, Davao, Singapore, Macau and Hong Kong.

"We are also in the final stages of launching a new route between Cebu and mainland China. We'll have more details on that soon," added Shau.

Cebu Pacific had earlier stated they would ramp-up capacity at its Cebu hub by as much as 20% in 2019. Routes in development for the Cebu hub are focused on North Asia markets such as China, Korea, and Japan.

"Philippines is the closest tropical destination from North Asia. Cebu and the 166 islands within the province alone boast of some of the best tropical getaways in the world. It's a logical choice to be our 'beach hub' with easier access to world-class beaches, dive spots and resorts," Shau said.

From Cebu, the airline operates direct flights to Bacolod, Caticlan (Boracay), Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Calbayog, Camiguin, Clark, Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Ozamis, Pagadian, Puerto Princesa, Siargao, Surigao, Tacloban, Zamboanga, Hong Kong, Macau, Tokyo (Narita), Singapore and Incheon.

Aside from its Clark and Cebu hubs, Cebu Pacific operates flights out of five other hubs in Philippines: Manila, Kalibo, Iloilo, Davao and Cagayan de Oro (Laguindingan).

The entire Cebu Pacific network currently covers over 108 routes spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.
