Cebu Pacific, the Philippines based budget airline, began its new Manila – Hanoi service on March 17, 2012. This twice weekly service departs Manila at 10:30pm, and the return flight departs Hanoi at 1:00am.
“This inaugural flight marks a very important milestone for Cebu Pacific, as we become the only airline to operate direct flights between Manila and Hanoi. This reinforces our commitment to continue expanding CEB’s reach in the Asia-Pacific region, and promote air travel to destinations not previously easily accessible to our passengers,” said Cabu Pacific President and CEO Lance Gokongwei.
Cebu Pacific also operates daily flights between Manila and Ho Chi Minh City, and will soon launch new routes Manila-Xiamen and Kalibo-Hong Kong (March 23, 2012), and Manila-Siem Reap (April 19, 2012).
