Cebu Pacific announced the resumption of its international operations in its Davao hub, starting with direct flights to Singapore.
CEB said it would begin on Oct. 30 with three-times-weekly flights from Davao to Singapore, or every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
Flight 5J 715 is scheduled to depart Francisco Bangoy International Airport at 5:15 p.m. and is set to arrive at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4 at 9:10 p.m. The return flight, 5J 716, is scheduled to leave Singapore at 9:55 p.m. and is estimated to arrive in Davao at 1:40 a.m. the next day.
This is the first international route that the airline is restarting from Davao, in line with its move to expand hubs outside Metro Manila.
“We are very excited to bring back this route as we know passengers in Mindanao have been waiting for more affordable and convenient flight options to fly abroad. Now that we’ve strengthened our operations from Manila, it’s time we move forward to growing our regional hubs as we work toward restoring 100 percent of our pre-pandemic capacity in the coming months,” said CEB chief commercial officer Xander Lao.
