THE Philippines' Cebu Pacific (CEB) will inaugurate flight services to the South-east Asian cities of Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur from Cebu this December.
Twice-weekly flights from Cebu to the Thai capital will commence December 8, shortly followed by a twice-weekly Cebu-Kuala Lumpur connection on the very next day.
“We are proud to launch two new international services from our Cebu hub. We look forward to providing our services to foreign tourists and overseas Filipino workers and ultimately boosting trade and tourism between Cebu, Thailand and Malaysia,” said CEB vice-president for marketing and distribution, Candice Iyog.
To introduce travellers to the new routes, CEB is holding a seat sale until September 2. The promotion is valid for travel between December 8 this year and February 28, 2013, and applies to CEB flights on other routes.
The airline currently operates four services from its base in Cebu to Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea’s Incheon and Busan.
CEB had also announced earlier on August 29, that it has welcomed the delivery of its latest aircraft, an Airbus A320, which will be used to expand the airline’s operations in Greater China. CEB will launch twice-weekly direct services between Hong Kong and Iloilo on November 8.
