Cebu Pacific flying twice weekly to Tokyo starting August 1

July 30, 2020

Cebu Pacific said it is rebuilding its international flight network by restarting flights to key Asian destinations,including Tokyo, in August.

This is on top of its once-a-week flights between Manila and Dubai which resumed mid-July.

Beginning August 1, Cebu Pacific  will be flying twice weekly from Tokyo (Narita) to Manila (Wednesday and Saturday).

On August 6, the airline will be flying two times weekly (Thursday and Saturday) between Manila and Singapore; and every Thursday from Seoul (Incheon) to Manila.

Twice weekly flights (Wednesday and Friday) between Taipei and Manila are scheduled on August 7. One-way flights to Manila from Osaka (Kansai) are also set on August 7.

“We are taking a conservative and agile approach to rebuilding our international network. While demand remains soft, there is latent demand for travel, particularly from stranded individuals and those who are eager to come home to visit their families,” said Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and customer experience of Cebu Pacific.

Travel regulations issued by the governments of the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan will be implemented. These include a requirement to secure a negative RT-PCR test prior to departure, mandatory COVID screening or tests and a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival.

“We have taken extra precautions and assure travelers that preventive measures are in place so we can start rebuilding the trust and confidence in air travel,” Iyog added. DMS
