CEB expands domestic routes


As domestic travel restrictions ease up, Cebu Pacific (CEB), is expanding its domestic footprint next month, starting new direct flights between Manila and Camiguin on November 15 and resuming direct flights from Cebu to Camiguin on November 9.

CEB’s wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo will operate both routes using its fleet of ATR aircraft.

“We are happy to launch these direct flights in time with the gradual reopening of domestic tourism," announced Xander Lao, CEB Chief Commercial Officer.

"Camiguin is an underrated gem that travelers will enjoy discovering," he noted.

"At the same time, these direct connections will enable residents to fly to and from Cebu and Manila conveniently, for leisure or business.”

To mark the launch of the routes, seats on both flights are on sale for P88 base fare from October 27 until November 10, 2021.

Travel period is from their respective launch dates until December 31, 2021.

Passengers can use their existing travel funds to pay for their bookings, or CEB’s newest e-wallet options – Gcash, GrabPay, and PayMaya.

The Island of Camiguin is known for its sandbar at White Island, the sunken cemetery, marine sanctuary, as well as its Lanzones Festival celebrated every October.

Camiguin Island requires arriving tourists to create an account on and upload necessary documents such as a filled-out health declaration form, along with a proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination.

Apart from this, travelers must also present a negative RT-PCR (swab) test result – taken at least 72 hours before departure if from Luzon; taken at least 48 hours before departure if from Visayas and Mindanao.

Tourists will also need to upload proof of confirmed booking from an LGU-accredited establishment or a clearance from the Municipal Health Officer of the municipality if staying in a private home.

Once complete, tourists need to download their ID with QR code and save a copy for presentation prior flight.

All tourists need to take an antigen test on their fifth day at the island.

CEB will begin operating twice weekly between Cebu and Camiguin on November 9 (every Tuesday and Saturday); and twice-a-week every Monday and Friday, beginning November 15, between Manila and Camiguin.
