    Cebu Pacific launches direct Manila-Camiguin flights

    The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), expands its domestic footprint with the start of
    its direct flight between Manila and Camiguin on November 15, and the resumption of direct flights
    from Cebu to Camiguin on November 9. 
    Both routes will be served by Cebu Pacific’s wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo using its fleet of ATR
    aircraft.   
    “We are very happy to launch these direct flights in time with the gradual reopening of domestic
    tourism. Camiguin is another underrated gem that we believe travelers will enjoy discovering. At the
    same time, these direct connections will enable residents to fly to and from Cebu and
    Manila conveniently, be it for leisure or business purposes,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer
    at Cebu Pacific.  
    To mark the launch of these routes, seats on both flights are on sale for as low as PHP88 base fare from
    October 27 until November 10, 2021. Travel period is from their respective launch dates, until December
    31, 2021.  
    Passengers may conveniently 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 famous sandbar at White Island, the sunken cemetery, marine
    sanctuary, as well as its Lanzones Festival celebrated every October, among others. 
    Camiguin Island requires arriving tourists to create an account on cleancamiguinqr.com and
    upload necessary documents such as an accomplished health declaration form, and proof of complete
    COVID-19 vaccination. Inbound travelers must also present a negative RT-PCR (swab) test result – taken
    at least 72 hours before departure if from Luzon; 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 to
    their flight.  All tourists will also need to take an antigen test on their fifth day of stay 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.     
    CEB has been rated 7/7 stars by airlineratings.com for its COVID-19 compliance as it continues to
    implement a multi-layered approach to safety, in accordance with global aviation standards. These
    include daily extensive cleaning and disinfection protocols for all aircraft and facilities, antigen testing
    before duty for all frontliners and crew members, and contactless flight procedures. Its jet fleet is
    equipped with hospital grade HEPA air filters, to keep viruses at bay.
