QUEZON CITY (GMA News Online) — Cebu Pacific announced on Thursday that it will resume international operations from Cebu, with flights to South Korea commencing in July.
In a statement, the budget carrier said that starting July 3, it intends to operate twice weekly flights from Cebu to Seoul (Incheon), every Thursday and Sunday.
Cebu Pacific said its flight 5J 128 is estimated to depart Mactan-Cebu International Airport at 12:25 p.m. and is set to arrive at Seoul International Airport at 6:10 p.m.
The return flight, 5J 129, is scheduled to leave Seoul at 6:55 p.m. and will arrive in Cebu at 10:50 p.m.
“We are very happy to restart this flight as we know passengers in the Visayas and Mindanao have been looking forward to travel internationally again, without needing to pass by Manila. We hope to expand our international network more in the coming months as we’ve already stabilized operating over 100% of our pre-pandemic domestic capacity,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer.
