Cebu Pacific has activated its Clark–Guangzhou sector, with direct flights operated four times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat). Each flight departs Clark at 11:35pm, while each returning flight leaves Guangzhou at 3:15am the following day.
The new route caters to increasing demand for leisure and business travel and supports new and ongoing investments in the special economic zones of Central Luzon, including the 9,450-hectare New Clark City. Additionally, Clark International Airport is in close proximity to vital city infrastructure that’s expected to be operational by 2022. New structures include the Manila–Clark railway, as well as a cargo railway that will connect Subic to Clark.
“With direct air service between Clark and Guangzhou, entrepreneurs and businesspeople will find ease in meeting with e-commerce suppliers based in one of China’s nine National Central Cities,” says Alex Reyes, vice president for commercial at Cebu Pacific. “There’s added convenience when it comes to attending mega trade events like the popular Canton Fair.”
“Chinese tourists will also be able to access the attractions offered in Luzon. Adventure treks in and around Mount Pinatubo are just a few hours’ drive away from Clark,” he adds.
Cebu Pacific currently flies 31 times weekly between the Philippines and mainland China. Direct flights are operated between Shanghai and Manila and Cebu, as well as between Manila and Beijing, Guangzhou, Xiamen and Shenzhen.
