Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) has expanded its operations in Japan with the launch of flights to two new destinations – Tokyo and Nagoya.
On 30 March 2014, the Philippine low-cost carrier commenced direct daily flights from Manila to Tokyo’s Narita Airport, and four weekly flights between Manila and Nagoya. Both routes will be operated using all-economy class Airbus A320 aircraft.
“We are very excited to finally be able to offer Cebu Pacific’s trademark lowest fares to these two new destinations in Japan,” said Candice Iyog, CEB’s vice president for marketing & distribution.
“We hope these two new destinations will enable many Filipinos to explore Japan for leisure or business travel. Japan is now more accessible and more affordable with Cebu Pacific flights,” she added.
The new Manila-Narita flights will depart the Philippine capital every day at 0525, arriving in Tokyo at 1035. The return flight departs Narita Airport at 1145, getting back into Manila at 1545.
The new Nagoya service will depart Manila every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 1520, arriving in the Japanese city at 2025. The return flight departs Nagoya at 2110, getting back into Manila at 0010 the next morning.
CEB also operates daily flights between Manila and Osaka.
The launch of the two new routes coincided with the start of Philippine Airlines’ new flights to Tokyo0 Haneda Airport.
