Budget airline Cebu Pacific is set to fly to all major coastal cities in China when it starts its Manila – Xiamen flights on March 23, 2012, a thrice weekly service, using its brand-new Airbus jet aircraft.
Flights for this route are scheduled to depart Manila at 11:20 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, arriving in Xiamen at 01:35 a.m. Return flights will leave Xiamen at 2:25 a.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and arrive in Manila at 04:40am.
“Xiamen and Fujian Province are the well-known hometown of about 85% Filipino-Chinese, including (CEB’s owners), the Gokongweis,” noted VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Xiamen is a highly industrialized city in the Fujian Province, on the Southeastern coast of mainland China. It was ranked China’s 2nd most suitable city for living by a Beijing-based polling agency, with highly developed banking services and open policy towards foreign investment and trade.
CEB is introducing its 18th international destination in the market with an P888 (CNY 138) Manila-Xiamen or Xiamen-Manila seat sale until December 23, 2011 or until seats last. After the sale, lowest year-round fares from Manila to Xiamen will start at P2,499 (CNY 388).
