With increased demand for travel from its hubs outside Manila, Cebu Pacific announced it will add new destinations from its Clark and Cebu hubs.
The Philippine low cost carrier will begin new domestic routes of Clark – Bacolod, Iloilo, and Puerto Princesa – while China flights are being eyed from Cebu.
“There’s still a lot of opportunity for expansion within the Philippines-interisland connections from key cities like Clark and Cebu…. Creating direct links between domestic destinations and our other hubs will spur tourism and movement of goods and investments, whilst doing away with having to pass through the main hub in Manila,” Cebu Pacific Chief Operations Officer Michael Ivan S. Shau said.
Daily flights from Clark to Iloilo and Bacolod will start on August 9, while flights to Puerto Princesa will begin on October 9. Though it has announced its plans for Cebu-China flights, the airline did not disclose any plans for those services as it is still being finalized.
Clark has been a growing hub for Cebu Pacific, which is seen as a viable alternative for travel to the Mega Manila area. Cebu Pacific also operates several domestic and international flights from the airport north of Manila, including services to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Macau.
