Cebu Pacific kicked off its direct, four-times-weekly flights from Manila to Guam last March 15.
CEB’s all-inclusive, low year-round fares for this trip begin at just PHP7,203 — said to be about 40% lower than other airlines’.
“We are proud to operate our first route in the US this day, which coincides with the month of our 20th anniversary. We share this excitement with the Filipinos in Guam, who may now come home to their families more often, and with travelers from the Philippines, who aim to cross another destination off their bucket list,” says Alex Reyes, CEB General Manager for the Long Haul Division.
“We hope to strengthen trade and tourism between the Philippines and Guam through faster, more affordable and more accessible flights for everyJuan.”
Passengers have the option to fly on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, with a 3.45am departure time from Manila and a 10.15am arrival time in Guam. The journey from Guam back to Manila is at 12.30pm, and the plane will land in Manila at 2.55pm.
Nathan Denight, Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager, remarked on the occasion, saying: “Cebu Pacific’s entry into Guam creates an opportunity to further connect our island and the Philippines. It also creates new and exciting ways to travel, whether it’s for business or pleasure…We look forward to partnering with Cebu Pacific in promoting tourism and our island paradise.”
