Flight resumes with fares starting from AUD299

Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), the Philippines’ leading airline, is set to resume its Melbourne-Manila route at the end of March following the successful relaunch of its Sydney-Manila service in July 2022.

To celebrate the relaunch, CEB is offering flights from Melbourne to Manila for AUD299* one-way all-in fares, allowing Melbournians to fly direct to the country’s capital city in just over eight hours and then access everything the Philippines has to offer.

The seat sale runs from January 16 - 31, with travel period from 16 January until 30 June 2023. All-in fares are AUD299 for Melbourne to Manila and AUD309 for Sydney to Manila one-way.

The much-anticipated flight resumption will provide additional capacity on the route and allow tourists to choose from over 7,000 islands sitting among the pristine waters of the archipelago.

CEB's direct Melbourne-Manila flights will initially run three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) starting 27 March and will utilise the airline's high capacity A330 fleet, capable of carrying up to 436 passengers (A330ceo) or 459 passengers (A330neo).

Leisure travellers can visit popular attractions in the Philippines and enjoy beautiful islands featuring a wide array of unique outdoor activities such as scuba diving, visiting a UNESCO-listed heritage underground river, canyoneering through waterfalls and many other adventure-related pursuits.

“We know we have an expansive Filipino community in Melbourne and are pleased to be able to offer both of them, as well as local Australians looking for somewhere new exciting to explore, the opportunity to fly direct to Manila and explore the Philippines with our widest domestic network,” said Carmina Romero, Cebu Pacific Director for Corporate Communications.

The carrier offers a wide internal network of flights to 34 domestic destinations, including popular islands such as Bohol, Boracay, Cebu, Coron and Siargao, and 19 international destinations.
