Cebu Pacific Air will launch direct flights from Manila to Tokyo (Narita) and to Nagoya on March 30, 2014. CEB will be the first Philippine low-cost carrier to offer direct flights between Manila and these two key Japanese cities.
CEB currently operates thrice weekly flights from Manila to Osaka. It is slated to more than double its flight frequency to Osaka, when it begins flying daily Manila-Osaka-Manila flights on December 20, 2013. The additional four weekly flights translate to a 133% seat capacity increase.
“With Cebu Pacific’s trademark lowest fares, travelers from Japan now have Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka as jump-off points when exploring the Philippines’ world-renowned beach and diving destinations. This is very much in line with the government’s tourism agenda, and the airline’s commitment to boost Philippine tourism,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
“With more flights to the Philippines, we believe Japan has the potential to be as big as South Korea when it comes to foreign tourist arrivals,” she added.
CEB will launch daily services to Tokyo (Narita), utilizing the airline’s brand-new Airbus A320 fleet. The maiden flight will depart Manila at 5:25am, arriving in Tokyo at 10:35am. The return flight departs Tokyo at 11:45am, and arrives in Manila at 3:45pm.
On the same day, CEB is set to launch its Manila-Nagoya-Manila service, with a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday frequency. Departing Manila at 3:20pm, the maiden flight will arrive in Nagoya at 8:25pm. The return flight will depart Nagoya at 9:10pm, and arrive in Manila at 12:10am the next day.
To launch CEB’s newest international destinations, CEB holds an introductory P2,488 seat sale from Manila to Tokyo or Nagoya, from November 22 to 24, 2013 or until seats last. Travel period is from March 30 to September 30, 2014.
