Cebu Pacific starts Cebu-Macau direct service today

Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier to the ASEAN region, inaugurates its direct service from Cebu to Macau starting today.

The direct Cebu-Macau twice weekly (Tuesday and Saturday) service departs from Cebu at 9:15pm and arrives in Macau at 11:50pm. The flight leaves Macau at 12:35am the following day and arrives in Cebu at 3:10am.

CEB operates six non-stop international routes from Cebu to Hong Kong, Macau, Pusan, Incheon, Singapore, and Taipei.  The airline launched their daily Cebu-Boracay flights yesterday and will start its Cebu-Bangkok service tomorrow.

Candice Iyog, CEB spokesperson said, “We are very happy to offer new international destinations from Cebu. This is part of our commitment to make air travel accessible and convenient to more Filipinos. We are confident that our trademark low fares will further stimulate travel and trade in both Cebu and Macau.”
 
CEB is the only airline offering a direct Cebu-Macau service. The lowest ‘Go’ fare to Macau starts at P1,499. It will also offer a Davao-Macau connecting service via Cebu.

Narzalina Lim, Marketing Representative of the Macau Government Tourist Office – Philippines, said, “We congratulate Cebu Pacific on another “first” in the history of Philippine aviation – that of a Philippine carrier establishing a direct link between Central Philippines and Macau. Macau, as an urban and MICE destination and Central Philippines, as a beach resort destination, truly complement each other ensuring the success of Cebu Pacific flights, both ways.”
