Cebu Pacific adds fourth daily service to Hong Kong

More Flights to HK than any other Filipino airline

Cebu Pacific (CEB) will mount a fourth daily service on Manila-Hong Kong starting June 30, 2008 in response to the growing demand for flights to serve this route.

With this additional frequency, CEB will offer the earliest departure from Manila to Hong Kong; as well as the first departure from Hong Kong to Manila than any Filipino airline.

The flight departs at 5:15 am and arrives in Hong Kong at 7:15am every Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. Consequently, the return flight leaves Hong Kong at 7:55am and arrives in Manila at 9:55am.

Meanwhile flights on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday depart for Hong Kong at 5:40am and lands at 7:40am. The return flight to Manila takes off at 8:25am and arrives at 10:25am.

Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and product, said, “With our very encouraging passenger loads, we are very happy to provide our guests with this additional service that will make travel to Hong Kong even more convenient. The additional frequency will also allow travelers to visit Hong Kong early in the morning and return to Manila on the same day.”

One-way fare to Hong Kong starts from P1,499 one way, exclusive of taxes and surcharges.

With the additional flights, CEB will offer the most direct flights to Hong Kong than any other Filipino airline, operating 76 direct flights weekly from Manila, Cebu, and Davao.

The airline will operate 56 flights weekly to Hong Kong from Manila and twelve flights weekly from Cebu. It also announced that it will fly direct to Hong Kong from Davao eight-times weekly beginning May 8, 2008.

The additional frequency will translate to a 30% increase in capacity for CEB’s Manila- Hong Kong service.

Iyog said the best way to get CEB’s lowest ‘Go’ fares to any destination is through its website, cebupacificair.com.  

Now in its 13th year, CEB continues to have the youngest fleet in the Philippines. CEB flies to 12, soon to be 15 international destinations, with the addition of Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, and Kaohsiung. CEB also operates flights to 21 domestic destinations.
