Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific is opening a new route linking Cebu to Macau to further promote Cebu as a gateway to and from the rest of the Visayas and Mindanao.

Starting December 7, 2018, Cebu Pacific will begin operating direct flights from Cebu to Macau, and vice versa, four times a week, or on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The flight from Cebu leaves at 6:50 p.m. and arrives in Macau at 10:00 p.m. while the return flight leaves Macau at 10:45 p.m., arriving in Cebu at 1:45 a.m. the next day.

“Cebu Pacific is very proud to be the first to make this commercial connection available for everyJuan, banking on the opportunity to grow our other hubs outside of Manila,” Cebu Pacific vice president for corporate affairs Atty. JR Mantaring said in a statement.

“We believe that this new connection is not only an answer to our passengers’ demands, but will also stimulate both the trade and tourism aspects in both destinations as it makes available both passenger and cargo services,” Mantaring added.

Macau, with its prime location, allows it to serve as a gateway to the Pearl River Delta, making it a perfect access point for business and leisure travelers alike. This connection gives passengers from Visayas and Mindanao a more viable option to fly to and from the area, the airline noted.

Cebu Pacific currently accounts for much of the connection between the Philippines and Macau, holding over 50% of the capacity share as it now flies direct from three hubs—Cebu, Clark, and Manila.

Cebu Pacific will also increase frequency of its flights from Cebu to Narita (Tokyo) from four times a week to daily, effective December 1, 2018. The number of direct flights to Hong Kong will also be raised, from only seven times a week to 10 times weekly, beginning November 26, 2018.

The airline, along with its wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo, now operates direct flights to 21 domestic and five international destinations.

Aside from Cebu, Cebu Pacific also operates flights out of six other strategic hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Clark, Kalibo, Iloilo, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro. The airline’s extensive network covers over 100 routes across 26 international and 37 domestic destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and the USA.
