PHILIPPINE-based budget airline Cebu Pacific will commence its thrice-weekly Manila-Xiamen-Manila service on March 23, 2012.

Flights for the route, the airline’s 18th international destination, are scheduled to depart Manila at 11:20pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, arriving in Xiamen at 1:35am. Return flights will leave Xiamen at 2:25am every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and arrive in Manila at 4:40am.

“CEB looks forward to expanding its network in China, especially with Xiamen in Fujian province being the well-known hometown of about 85% of the Filipino-Chinese in the Philippines, including the Gokongweis,” CEB vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said. The Gokongweis control CEB.

“We flew 30% more passengers to mainland China in the third quarter of 2011, compared to the same period last year. CEB will continue to grow its China market with its trademark low fares and destination offerings,” Iyog added.

Xiamen is a highly industrialized city in Fujian province, on the southeastern coast of mainland China.

The airline currently flies three times a week to Beijing and Guangzhou, and daily to Shanghai. Starting January 7, 2012, it will service Manila-Beijing-Manila four times a week.

CEB’s Greater China operations extend to daily flights from Manila to Taipei, up to six daily flights to Hong Kong from Manila, Clark and Cebu, and 11 weekly flights to Macau from Manila and Clark.
