The Philippine’s largest carrier, Cebu Pacifi c, is set to launch three new routes including first international service from the southern Philippine city of Davao.

Th e triple launch will take place on 17 December, when CEB commences services connecting Manila with Fukuoka, Cebu with Taipei and Davao with Singapore. All three routes will utilize A320 aircraft.

“We look forward to seeing the ‘Cebu Pacifi c effect’ in the new routes we will operate. We’ve seen time and again how connectivity and CEB’s trademark low fares stimulated travel,” said CEB’s vice president of marketing & distribution, Candice Iyog.

Th e new Manila-Fukuoka route will operate three times a week, and will mark the launch of CEB’s fourth destination in Japan following Osaka, Tokyo and Nagoya.

Th e Cebu-Taipei service will also operate three times a week, becoming CEB’s sixth international route from Cebu and its first to Taiwan. Th e airline also links Cebu with Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Busan and Tokyo.

Finally, the Davao-Singapore route will operate twice a week, marking CEB’s first international route from Davao. “Last year, the Davao region also reported the fastest economic growth in the Philippines. With this fast-paced development expected to continue in the coming years, Cebu Pacific’s non-stop fl ights and trademark low fares between Davao and Singapore will increase accessibility, and facilitate business and tourism growth opportunities,” Iyog added.
