Cebu Pacific announces first US destination

Cebu Pacific introduces Manila-Guam route with P2,500 seats, all-in


The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB) is slated to launch a four times weekly service between Manila and Guam on March 15, 2016. Guam is the low-cost carrier’s first US destination.


The airline kicked off the Guam route announcement with P2,500 all-in seats, available until November 29, 2015 or until seats last. These are for travel from March 15 to November 30, 2016.


“Having Guam in our network sets us off on another expansion path across the Pacific. With the launch of Guam, our introductory fare is up to 83% lower than other airlines. Fares this low can only mean more tourists for both countries, more Filipinos visiting home, and more opportunities for everyone,” said CEB President and CEO Lance Gokongwei.

After the seat sale, CEB all-in fares to Guam start from P7,197, which is still up to 40% lower compared to other airlines.


CEB’s Guam route will operate every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and will utilize the airline’s brand-new Airbus A320 fleet.


The Manila-Guam service will depart at 3:45am and arrive in Guam at 10:15am. The Guam-Manila flight will depart Guam at 12:30pm and arrive in Manila at 2:55pm. From Manila, passengers can utilize CEB’s extensive network in the Philippines. Domestic destinations with excellent connections include Laoag, Iloilo and Cebu.


“We are excited that Cebu Pacific Air is launching its new flight service to our island from Manila early next year,” said Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager Nathan Denight. “This is an exciting opportunity to further connect the Philippines and Guam. It will also help grow our visitor arrivals and give travelers a chance to experience all the various signature events, activities and sights that can be found only in Guam.”


CEB’s flight launch and seat sale are timely for those who wish to catch the 4th Guam International Marathon and Guam Live International Music Festival (April), Festival of Pacific Arts (May), Electric Island Festival (June), Guam BBQ Block Party (July), and 2016 Shop Guam Festival (November).


The Philippines also kicks off its Visit Philippines Again 2016, after a successful Visit Philippines Year 2015 campaign.


CEB’s network now spans 64 destinations on 98 routes, including flights to Sydney, Doha, Beijing, Tokyo, Bali and Dubai.
