CEB Launches Flights From Cebu To Kuala Lumpur And Bangkok

The Philippines' largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) expands its regional network from Cebu, with the launch of direct twice weekly services to both Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.

CEB will begin operating a Tuesday, Saturday service from Cebu to Kuala Lumpur on December 8, 2012. The maiden flight will leave Cebu at 4:45 p.m., and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 8:10 p.m. The return flight will depart Cebu at 8:55 p.m., and will arrive at 12:20 a.m. the next day.

On December 9, 2012, CEB will launch its Thursday, Sunday service from Cebu to Bangkok. The flight will depart Cebu at 4:50 p.m., and arrive in Bangkok at 7:20 p.m. The return flight leaves Bangkok at 8:10 p.m. and arrives in Cebu at 12:40 a.m. the next day.

CEB already operates approximately 25 weekly flights from Cebu to Seoul (Incheon), Pusan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

"Cebuanos can now book our trademark lowest fares for a weekend of adventure in Kuala Lumpur or shopping in Bangkok. We are confident these direct flights will also contribute to Cebu's booming tourism and travel industry, which remain one of our priorities. We will continue to grow our Cebu hub to encourage even more Juans to fly," said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

She added that passengers can now take any of CEB's 20 direct domestic flights to Cebu, and connect to South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand.

Sending off CEB's first passengers from Cebu to Kuala Lumpur are Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines Chief of Staff Artemio Orozco, and representatives from the Embassy of Malaysia, Department of Tourism, Lapu Lapu City, and travel and tourism associations in Cebu.

The next day, Thailand Ambassador Prasas Prasasvinitchai and government and tourism partners will send off CEB's maiden flight from Cebu to Bangkok.

"Congratulations to Cebu Pacific on its inaugural flight between Cebu and Bangkok!" said Ambassador Prasasvinitchai.
