Japan is one of CEB's most popular international destinations from the Philippines. The Japan National Tourism Organization shows that Filipino arrivals in Japan surged by 44% to more than 211,000 from January to October 2015, compared to the same period last year.
The Manila-Fukuoka service operates every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, departing Manila at 2:15pm and arriving in Fukuoka at 6:55pm. The return flight departs Fukuoka at 8pm and arrives in Manila at 10:40pm. These flights utilise CEB's brand-new Airbus A320 fleet, with 180 all-economy class seats.
CEB has also launched direct flights between Cebu and Taipei, Taiwan, as well as between Davao and Singapore on December 17, 2015.
"The launches of three international routes from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao underscore Cebu Pacific's commitment to provide more travel opportunities, and make the Philippines and the world easily accessible to 'everyjuan'," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
CEB's network now spans 64 destinations on over 98 routes, including flights to Guam, Dubai, Doha, Sydney, Bali, Seoul, and Beijing.
