CEB to begin night flights at world-class PH island Boracay

July 3, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

The Philippines’  leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), will start evening flights to and from Caticlan, the gateway to Boracay Island, by July 1, 2017. CEB is the first carrier to mount night flights and utilize the upgraded air traffic control system and newly-installed night navigational equipment at the Godofredo P. Ramos Airport.

CEB will be mounting two additional round-trip flights daily between Manila and Caticlan, and will be utilizing the ATR aircraft through wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo. In total, Cebu Pacific has 39 flights weekly between Manila and Caticlan; 14 between  Cebu and Caticlan; and seven between Clark and Caticlan. The additional night frequencies will add 12 more flights to Caticlan to bring the total CEB frequency to 72. 

Currently, the last flight between Manila to Caticlan leaves at 3:30pm with the return flight at 5:10pm. With CEB’s new night operations, the last flight will be leaving Manila at 6:55pm and will be returning from Caticlan at 8:45pm.

The mounting of night flight  at the Caticlan Airport was given the go-signal following  technical reviews and consultations on its night operation capability with  the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), the Department of Transportation, and other relevant aviation authorities. Prior to Caticlan, Cebu Pacific had mounted night flights to and from the Roxas City Airport in Capiz, the Laguindingan  Airport (Cagayan  de  Oro)  in  Misamis  Oriental,  and  the  Legazpi  International  Airport  in  Albay  as  soon  as  these were approved by aviation authorities for night capability.

“We thank CAAP for continually leading the scale-up of our airports to night-flying capability. We believe that expansion of operating times will not only boost frequencies to key domestic routes,  but  it will  also give  travellers  more  options,  greater  flexibility on when they fly and also help decongest air traffic, especially during the peak flying hours at noon and early afternoon,” said Atty. JR Mantaring, Vice President for Corporate Affairs of Cebu Pacific.

“The mounting of evening flights to and from Boracay was a long-standing request of tourism stakeholders. We take pride in being able to deliver this need to everyJuan. More frequency will also mean more passengers being able to take advantage of our lowest year-round fares,” added Mantaring.

For as low as Php  2,774.88 (approximately USD 55), passengers can fly from Manila to Caticlan, while Cebu Pacific also offers daily flights from Clark to Caticlan at Php 2,365.88 (approximately USD 48) and from Cebu to Caticlan at only Php 2,217.88 (approximately USD 45).
