Cebu Pacific has announced a new daily flight service connecting Clark Airport with the recently opened Bohol-Panglao International Airport.
The new route revealed today (Saturday, December 15) is part of the carrier’s expansion plans for its Clark hub to better serve Northern and Central Luzon.
The daily Flight 5J 613, bound for Tagbilaran (Panglao), is scheduled to depart Clark at 9.55am and arrive at 11.20am. The return flight, 5J 614, is set to depart Bohol at 11.50am, and arrive Clark at 1.15pm.
“We are excited to commence operation of our newest route in Clark. As we expand our route network, we look forward to supporting economic growth in Clark and its surrounding areas, as well as in the province of Bohol through tourism and logistics support,” said Dindo Fernando, Director for Airport Services at Cebu Pacific in a press release.
Cebu Pacific started commercial flights out of Clark airport in 2006, and it has served as its North and Central Luzon hub for the past 10 years. The airline utilises its fleet of Airbus aircraft for flights in and out of its Clark hub.
Cebu Pacific has increased its frequency out of its Clark hub by 75 per cent this year alone, bringing the total number of flights in and out of Clark to 3,711 by the end of this year.
Aside from Tagbilaran (Panglao), Cebu Pacific flies daily between Clark and Davao; twice daily between Clark and Cebu, as well as between Clark and Hong Kong; and daily to and from Singapore and Macau.
The Bohol Panglao International Airport — billed as the country’s first eco-airport — was opened last month by President Duterte.
Dubbed the “Green Gateway to the World”, the airport has been built using the latest techniques in sustainable construction.
