Cebu Pacific now flies to Bali from Manila
The Philippines’ largest budget carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) launched its maiden flight from Manila to Bali (Denpasar), Indonesia, last Saturday, March 16. Bali is the airline’s 20th international destination.
“CEB launched its direct service from Manila to Bali, just in time for peak summer travel in the Philippines. Bali is now a convenient and affordable option for leisure travelers, honeymooners, groups of friends or families,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
CEB’s Manila-Bali (Denpasar) twice weekly service is scheduled every Tuesday and Saturday. It will depart Manila at 4:00am and arrive in Bali (Denpasar) at 7:50am. The return flight will depart Bali (Denpasar) at 8:35am, and arrive in Manila at 12:25pm.
Bali (Denpasar) is CEB’s 2nd destination in Indonesia, aside from Jakarta where CEB operates a four times weekly service. Lowest year-round fares from Bali (Denpasar) to Manila start at PHP3,499, which is up to 38% lower than other airlines.
“CEB also aims to tap foreign tourists in Bali who wish to make the most of their holidays, by adding fun Philippines to their travel itineraries. They will surely find CEB’s trademark lowest fares and unbeatable Philippine route network a great value proposition,” Iyog added.
In the Philippines, CEB offers the most extensive domestic network of 34 destinations and 62 routes. Aside from Bali (Denpasar), it offers 20 other international destinations, including Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul.
