- China Eastern Airlines commenced daily services from Shanghai Pudong (PVG) to Cebu (CEB) on 18 October. OAG schedules show that flights on the 2,325-kilometre sector will be operated by the Chinese carrier’s A320s until 27 October. There then follows a break in China Eastern service until 18 January 2018, when daily frequencies resume. There is currently no direct competition on this route, although OAG schedules data suggest Juneyao Airlines will start serving the airport pair three times weekly from 31 October. China Eastern already serves Manila and Clark in the Philippines from Pudong. See how Cebu Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
