Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific has begun operation of its daily flight between its Clark and Davao hubs. The new routes are part of plans to expand the airline’s route network from Clark International Airport (CRK).

Flight 5J 985 departs from Clark to Davao daily every 1:45 p.m., with estimated time of arrival at the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao at 3:40 p.m. The return flight, 5J 986, leaves Davao at 4:10 p.m., with estimated time of arrival at CRK at 6:05 p.m.

Meanwhile, the direct Cebu Pacific service between Clark and Tagbilaran, Bohol will begin operating on December 15. Tagbilaran-bound flight 5J 613 is scheduled to depart Clark at 9:55 a.m. daily and arrive at 11:20 a.m. The return flight, 5J 614, is set to depart Tagbilaran at 11:50 a.m. and arrive at Clark at 1:15 p.m.

Cebu Pacific said it will continue to expand its footprint at CRK. By end-2018, the airline will have boosted frequency by 75% year-on-year, bringing the total number of flights in and out of Clark to 3,711 by the end of this year, representing 620,540 seats.

Cebu Pacific utilizes its fleet of Airbus aircraft for flights in and out of its Clark hub. The fleet is comprised of 36 Airbus A320, five Airbus A321CEO (Current Engine Option), and eight Airbus A330 aircraft.

In 2006, Cebu Pacific started commercial flights out of Clark airport, which has served as its North and Central Luzon.

“Since our maiden Clark-Cebu route in 2006, we have never stopped operating in Clark and we have never left Clark. We have consistently maintained our presence in Clark, taking a measured pace of expansion. Through the years, Clark has proven its viability as a gateway to North and Central Luzon. We remain committed to being a partner in the development of the Clark Economic Zone though ramping-up our air connectivity,” said Cebu Pacific vice president for safety and quality Jomar Rodriguez.

Aside from Davao, Cebu Pacific flies twice daily between Clark and Cebu, as well as between Clark and Hong Kong, and daily to and from Singapore and Macau.

Cebu Pacific currently has 37 destinations, 76 routes and over 2,130 weekly flights domestically. It also flies to 26 international destinations, with over 32 routes spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and the U.S. Aside from its Clark and Davao hubs, Cebu Pacific operates flights out of five other strategic hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Kalibo, Iloilo, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro (Laguindingan).
