Cebu Pacific launches direct flights from Camiguin in Nov

  • Cebu Pacific to launch direct flights out of the recently upgraded Camiguin Airport to and from Manila and Cebu in Nov 2021
  • Cebu Pacific will operate twice-weekly flights between Cebu and Camiguin on Nov 9 and between Manila and Camiguin beginning Nov 15
  • Both routes will be operated by Cebu Pacific’s wholly owned subsidiary, Cebgo, using its fleet of ATR aircraft

Cebu Pacific is launching direct flights out of the recently upgraded Camiguin Airport to and from Manila and Cebu in November 2021 as the air carrier further expands its domestic footprint.

Cebu Pacific will operate twice-weekly flights (Tuesday and Saturday) between Cebu and Camiguin from November 9, and twice-weekly flights (Monday and Friday) between Manila and Camiguin beginning November 15.

Both routes will be operated by Cebu Pacific’s wholly owned subsidiary, Cebgo, using its fleet of ATR aircraft.

Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer Xander Lao in a statement said the launch of the direct flights is in time for the gradual reopening of domestic tourism.

“Camiguin is another underrated gem that we believe travelers will enjoy discovering. At the same time, these direct connections will enable residents to fly to and from Cebu and Manila conveniently, be it for leisure or business purposes,” he added.

To mark the launch of the two routes, seats on both flights are on sale for as low as P88 base fare from October 27 until November 10, 2021. Travel period is from its respective launch dates until December 31, 2021.

The island of Camiguin is known for its famous sandbar in White Island, the sunken cemetery, marine sanctuary, and the Lanzones Festival celebrated every October, among other landmarks and festivities.

On October 22, the government inaugurated Camiguin Airport’s expanded passenger terminal building, which can now serve at least 200 passengers from its previous passenger holding capacity of 66.

Camiguin requires arriving tourists to create an account on cleancamiguinqr.com and upload necessary documents such as a filled-out health declaration form, along with proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination. Apart from this, travelers must also present a negative RT-PCR (swab) test result—taken at least 72 hours before they depart from Luzon or at least 48 hours before departing from Visayas and Mindanao.

Tourists will also need to upload proof of confirmed booking from a local government unit-accredited establishment or a clearance from the municipal health officer of the municipality if they are staying in a private home. Once all requirements are complete, tourists need to download their ID with QR code and save a copy for presentation prior to their flight.

All tourists will also need to take an antigen test on their fifth day on the island.
