With the recent granting of additional entitlements by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), Cebu Pacific now has the green light to run an additional seven flights weekly from Manila to the UAE; direct flights to Taipei from Caticlan, Clark, Davao, Puerto Princesa and Tagbilaran; and direct flights to Kaohsiung from Caticlan and Cebu.
At present, CEB has daily flights between Manila and Dubai, 10 times-weekly flights between Manila and Taipei, and thrice-weekly flights between Cebu and Taipei.
With these entitlements, the airline has also become an official Philippine carrier to Russia (which means passengers can look forward to thrice-weekly flights from Manila to Moscow and Vladivostok soon), as well as an official carrier under the ASEAN Multilateral Agreement on Air Services (MAAS). Upon the Philippines’ ratification of the relevant protocols of the MAAS, CEB could launch unlimited flights between capital cities in ASEAN.
