CebuPac to launch Manila-Dumaguete evening flights


By Louella Desiderio | The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Cebu Pacific will mount evening flights between Manila and Dumaguete later this week.

In a statement issued over the weekend, the budget carrier said it would commence evening flights to and from the Dumaguete-Sibulan Airport starting on Friday.

As Cebu Pacific starts evening flights, it will be mounting three additional round-trip flights per week between Manila and Dumaguete.

The last flight will leave Manila at 5:20 p.m. and arrive in Dumaguete at 6:50 p.m.

The return flight will depart Dumaguete at 8 p.m.

At present, Cebu Pacific flies 21 times weekly on the Manila-Dumaguete route and 14 times per week between Cebu and Dumaguete through the carrier’s wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo.

All of the carrier’s flights to Dumaguete will use the 180-seater A320 aircraft.

The fare for the Manila-Dumaguete route is available for as low as P1,643.

“Increasing the number of airports with night-flying capability would help promote tourism and improve connectivity within the country,” Paterno Mantaring, vice president for corporate affairs of Cebu Pacific said.

Increasing the number of airports with night operations would improve aircraft movement and traffic at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, especially during peak hours, Mantaring said.

On July 1, Cebu Pacific started night flights to and from Caticlan, which serves the country’s popular tourist destination Boracay Island.

Aside from Caticlan, Cebu and Davao, Cebu Pacific also has evening flights to and from Roxas City Airport in Capiz, Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental and the Legazpi International Airport in Albay.

Cebu Pacific currently has flights to 37 domestic and 26 international destinations, with over 104 routes spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the US.

It has six strategically located hubs in the country, at Clark, Davao, Kalibo, Cebu, Iloilo and Manila.
