Cebu Pacific Air, the Philippinesâ€™ largest airline, has marked the start of twice weekly non-stop flights between Davao and Singapore with great fanfare.
The inaugural flight was sent off by Philippine department of tourism assistant secretary Art Boncato and Cebu vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog.
The new service departs Singapore every Thursday and Sunday at 21:55, arriving in Davao at 01:40 the next day.
The return flight departs Davao every Thursday and Sunday at 17:35 and arrives in Singapore at 21:10.
This new route will utilize CEBâ€™s young fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft.
Besides Davao, CEB offers direct flights from Singapore to Manila, Cebu, Clark and Iloilo.
â€œThis launch marks our fifth direct route from Singapore to the Philippines.
â€œOur trademark low fares mean that business and leisure travellers alike can now enjoy easy access to Southern Philippines, and explore all the wonders that Davao has to offer,â€ said Iyog.
Widely regarded as the capital of southern Philippines, Davao is a growing business hub and a leading outdoor adventure destination.
Its clean streets, modern infrastructure, and eco-adventure offerings make it an ideal place to visit for adventure seekers and nature lovers.
