MANILA, Philippines – Gokongwei-led airline Cebu Pacific announced the launch of new night flights to and from Boracay via Caticlan Airport beginning Saturday, July 1.
The mounting of night flights to and from Boracay is in response to a long-standing tourist request, according to Cebu Pacific vice president for corporate affairs JR Mantaring.
The airline added the night flights after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, the Department of Transportation, and other aviation authorities approved Caticlan Airport’s night operation capabilities.
The new night routes make adds two daily round-trip flights between Manila and Caticlan, with Cebu Pacific’s last flight set to leave Manila at 6:55 pm and return from Caticlan at 8:45 pm.
“We believe that expansion of operating times will not only boost frequencies to key domestic routes, but it will also give travelers 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 Mantaring.
Prior to the night flights, Cebu Pacific’s last flight from Manila to Caticlan leaves at 3:30 pm, with a return flight from Caticlan at 5:10 pm.
Cebu Pacific said in a statement that passengers will be able to fly to Caticlan from Manila for as low as P2,774.88. Routes to Caticlan from Clark and Cebu will also operate for as low as P2,365.88 and P2,217.88, respectively.
The new schedules bring Cebu Pacific’s total number of flights to Caticlan to 72.
Cebu Pacific currently flies to 37 domestic destinations, including Siargao, Dumaguete, Coron, Davao, and Puerto Princesa. – Rappler.com
