MANILA, Philippines — Gokongwei-owned carrier Cebu Pacific is set to launch direct flights between Cebu and Macau to further promote Cebu as a gateway to and from the rest of Visayas and Mindanao.

Starting Dec. 7, Cebu Pacific said it would begin operating direct flights from Cebu to Macau, and vice-versa, four-times-a-week every Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

The flights leaves Cebu at 6:50 p.m., and arrives in Macau at 10 p.m., while its return flight leaves Macau at 10:45 p.m., and arrives in Cebu at 01:45 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 JR Mantaring said.

“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 said.

Cebu Pacific said the new connection gives passengers from the Visayas and Mindanao a more viable option to fly to Macau, a popular spot for business and leisure travelers.

Cebu Pacific said it currently owns majority of the connection between Philippines and Macau, holding over 50 percent of the capacity share as it now flies direct from Clark and Manila, and soon Cebu.

The company is also increasing the frequency of its flights from Cebu to Narita (Tokyo) from four times a week to daily, starting Dec, 1.

Direct flights to Hong Kong have also been increased, from seven times a week to 10 times weekly, beginning Nov. 26.

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

The airline’s extensive network covers over 100 routes across 26 international and 37 domestic destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and US.
