Cebu Pacific’s Cebu hub continues to grow as the airline launches its new direct service between Cebu — a gateway to and from the rest of the Visayas and Mindanao — and Macau starting December 7. The service — the fifth international flight out of Cebu — is available four times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. The outbound flight leaves Cebu at 6.50pm and arrives in Macau at 10pm; the return flight leaves Macau at 10.45pm and arrives in Cebu at 1.45am 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 … 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,” says Atty. JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Corporate Affairs. The direct service is the fifth international flight out of the airline’s Cebu hub.
Thanks to its geography, Macau serves as a gateway to the Pearl River Delta and is a perfect access point for both business and leisure travelers. This connection gives travelers from the Visayas and Mindanao quicker access to the area. Cebu Pacific currently owns the majority of the connections between the Philippines and Macau (50% of the capacity share)as it flies direct from three hubs — Cebu, Clark, and Manila.
