The relaunch of its Clark hub allows Cebu Pacific to continue providing great value for its passengers, with an additional 10,000 seats per month and fares for both domestic and international flights, which is 30% lower than their pre-pandemic average. It will also boost the airline’s network from its Clark hub and reestablish it as an important gateway for local and international travelers.

To support this expansion, CEB is set to take delivery of three additional aircraft which will be based in Clark. These are on top of the 10 new Airbus NEO aircraft that will be delivered in 2023 to expand the airline’s fleet.

“The launch of our Clark flights today is a fulfillment of Cebu Pacific’s mission to help make air travel more accessible and affordable for travelers in North and Central Luzon. This expansion will give the traveling public more opportunities to explore the Philippines and the rest of the world,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific President and Chief Commercial Officer.

Noel Manankil, President and Chief Executive Officer of Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD), the private consortium that manages Clark International Airport, reiterated its support to CEB’s initiatives to grow its network and capacity from the station.

“Clark International Airport and Cebu Pacific are working closely with each other to ensure a seamless experience for travelers. Our brand-new terminal is ready to welcome Cebu Pacific passengers travelling to and from the best domestic and international destinations and serve as the window to the Philippines for visitors coming from different parts of the world,” Manankil said.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) lauded CEB’s efforts to help spur travel to Clark and the rest of the Philippines.

“The increased connectivity from Clark will further solidify the station’s position as a premier tourism hub in Central Luzon. This initiative will also attract more investors to find business opportunities in the area, which will translate to additional jobs for the locals,” said Tourism Sec. Christina Frasco.

CEB is firmly in place for full recovery as it restores 100% of its pre-COVID network and capacity, aided by its unbeatable seat sales, widest domestic network, and reinstatement of all its international destinations.

The airline flies to 35 domestic and 25 international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
