CEB to begin night flights at world-class PH island Boracay

CEB will be mounting two additional round-trip flights daily between Manila and Caticlan, and will be utilizing the ATR aircraft through wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo.

The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific, will start evening flights to and from Caticlan, the gateway to Boracay Island, by July 1, 2017. CEB is the first carrier to mount night flights and utilize the upgraded air traffic control system and newly-installed night navigational equipment at the Godofredo P. Ramos Airport.

CEB will be mounting two additional round-trip flights daily between Manila and Caticlan, and will be utilizing the ATR aircraft through wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo. In total, Cebu Pacific has 39 flights weekly between Manila and Caticlan; 14 between Cebu and Caticlan; and seven between Clark and Caticlan. The additional night frequencies will add 12 more flights to Caticlan to bring the total CEB frequency to 72.

Currently, the last flight between Manila to Caticlan leaves at 3:30pm with the return flight at 5:10pm. With CEB’s new night operations, the last flight will be leaving Manila at 6:55pm and will be returning from Caticlan at 8:45pm.

The mounting of night flight at the Caticlan Airport was given the go-signal following technical reviews and consultations on its night operation capability with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), the Department of Transportation, and other relevant aviation authorities. Prior to Caticlan, Cebu Pacific had mounted night flights to and from the Roxas City Airport in Capiz, the Laguindingan Airport (Cagayan de Oro) in Misamis Oriental, and the Legazpi International Airport in Albay as soon as these were approved by aviation authorities for night capability.

“We thank CAAP for continually leading the scale-up of our airports to night-flying capability. We believe that expansion of operating times will not only boost frequencies to key domestic routes, but it will also give travellers more options, greater flexibility on when they fly and also help decongest air traffic, especially during the peak flying hours at noon and early afternoon,” said Atty. JR Mantaring, Vice President for Corporate Affairs of Cebu Pacific.

“The mounting of evening flights to and from Boracay was a long-standing request of tourism stakeholders. We take pride in being able to deliver this need to everyJuan. More frequency will also mean more passengers being able to take advantage of our lowest year-round fares,” added Mantaring.
