Cebu Pacific to introduce direct flight from Cebu to Bangkok


BUDGET CARRIER Cebu Pacific (CEB) said it will launch two new destinations from its Cebu hub, including a direct flight to Bangkok.

The airline, operated by Cebu Air, Inc., will commence the Masbate route from its Cebu hub on October 25, consisting of three weekly flights (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), Cebu Pacific said in an e-mailed statement on Wednesday.

Cebu Pacific will also begin the flights between Cebu and Don Mueang-Bangkok on Oct. 2, operating three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).

“This expansion aligns with our mission to provide accessible and affordable air travel for every Juan. We are committed to connecting more destinations and offering our passengers more choices for their travel needs,” Cebu Pacific President and Chief Commercial Officer Alexander G. Lao said.

Bangkok is one of Cebu Pacific’s first international destinations, with its maiden Manila-Bangkok service launched in 2006.

The airline also operates direct flights to Bangkok from Manila and Clark.

With the nearing launch of the Masbate route, Cebu Pacific said that travelers may now visit tourist destinations such as the white sand beaches of Ticao and Burias Islands as well as the marine life in Manta Bowl Shoal.

From Wednesday until June 13, Cebu Pacific announced that passengers can already book flights to Don Mueang-Bangkok and Masbate from Cebu for as low as P1 one-way base fare, exclusive of fees and surcharges.

The travel period for Don Mueang-Bangkok will be from Oct. 2 to 25, and Oct. 25 to March 29, 2025, for Masbate.

Cebu Pacific has 35 domestic and 25 international destinations across Asia, Australia, and Middle East.

On Wednesday, Cebu Air shares rose by 1.14% or 30 centavos to P26.60 per share. — Revin Mikhael D. Ochave
