Cebu Pacific has resumed jet flight operations to the Legaspi in the southern Philippine island of Luzon.
According to the Philippine budget airline, Cebu Pacific operated its first flight to the Bicol International Airport – operated as flight 5J321 from Manila - using an Airbus A320 aircraft on May 1.
The airline currently operates up to five daily flights between Manila and Legaspi. Since the opening of the Bicol International Airport in October, the airline has been using 78-seat ATR turboprop aircraft on the route.
“Since the new airport opened in October last year, we have been operating our 78-seater ATR or turbo propeller type aircraft. The addition of jet flights will enable CEB to serve more passengers with our Airbus fleet while continuously contributing to tourism and economic growth of the Bicol region,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer at Cebu Pacific.
Along with the Manila-Legaspi round-trip flights, Cebu Pacific also operates four weekly flights between Legaspi and the central Philippine city of Cebu.
