Set for aggressive growth: Cebu Pacific adds flights to Singapore from Manila, Cebu

Gokongwei-led Cebu Pacific is increasing its flight frequency to Singapore from two of its largest hubs, Manila and Cebu.
The budget carrier is doubling its daily frequency between Manila and Singapore on July 1 with the addition of a morning schedule option.
By July 15, Cebu Pacific plans to restart its flights between Cebu and Singapore, beginning with a thrice weekly frequency every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
“We are delighted to continue ramping-up our international flight frequencies, not only in Manila, but also in Cebu,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer.
“We know majority of the travelling public have been looking forward to travel internationally again, especially since a lot of countries have eased their restrictions,” he added.
Fully vaccinated travelers flying to Singapore are no longer required to submit a pre-departure COVID 19 test.
Instead, they must present their proof of full vaccination (VaxCertPH or BOQ Yellow Card), and fill out a Singapore arrival card three days before arrival.
“We continue to work towards the expansion of our international network while we maintain operating over 100 percent of our pre-pandemic domestic capacity,” Lao said.
