- Cebu Pacific Airways on 26 March began four times weekly flights between Cebu (CEB) and Tokyo Narita (NRT). The 3,277-kilometre sector will be flown by the airline’s A320s departing Cebu at 05:55 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The return flight departs Tokyo at 12:05 on the same days. The route is already flown twice-daily by Philippine Airlines. Cebu Pacific operates two other international services from Cebu, to Hong Kong and Singapore, while the carrier already serves Tokyo Narita with daily flights from Manila. “We look forward to welcoming even more Japanese tourists to Cebu, which is located at the centre of the Philippines. It is an island destination known for its beaches, mangoes, snorkelling, diving, food and culture,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
