The Philippines’ Cebu Pacific Airline has announced resumption of its daily flights from Manila to Dubai towards the month-end as it continues its international operations.
Special commercial flights are due on 27th and 29th September 2021, as the government has announced repatriation of overseas Filipinos in the Middle East. Therefore, these flights have been referred to as ‘Bayanihan’ flights.
“Following the lifting of entry restrictions for Philippine-inbound flights from various countries including the UAE, we are glad to be able to bring home more Filipinos who want to fly home and be reunited with their loved ones through Bayanihan flights. It has opened more opportunities for us to serve and assist in the repatriation efforts for our kababayans from the Middle East,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience of Cebu Pacific.
Passengers may book and view their flights through www.cebupacificair.com.
Guests are required to submit negative RT-PCR test results taken within 48 hours prior to departure, among other travel guidelines issued by the governments of the Philippines and the UAE.
Daily flights from Manila to Dubai are likely to begin from 30th September. Among other reinstated air travels are flights to Kuala Lumpur on 4th October and Fukuoka on 5th November. Also, twice-weekly flights are likely to Nagoya starting 2nd October and to Osaka on 4th October.
Cebu Pacific also plans to increase its October flights to tourism havens including Boracay, Siargao and Bohol, aimed at supporting the Philippine Department of Tourism towards pushing for local tourism and responsible travel.
The airline offers flexible options with unlimited rebooking services for travellers, without any fee charged.
