Cebu Pacific to start flying to Phuket

May 17, 2013

Budget carrier Cebu Pacific will soon start flying from Manila to Phuket, Thailand. Direct flights from Manila to Phuket will start on August 16. The budget carrier is the first airline to have direct flights from the Philippines to island destination.


Cebu Pacific will operate a thrice weekly Manila-Phuket service every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The maiden flight will leave Manila at 8:00 p.m. and arrive in Phuket at 11:00 p.m. The return flight will depart Phuket at 12:00 a.m. the next day, and will arrive in Manila at 5:05 a.m.

Cebu Pacific is offering a discounted base fare of P999 for a one-way ticket to Phuket on its website, from today (May 17) to May 23. The travel period is from August 16 to October 31.

With the admin fee of P120, passengers will pay P1,119 for a one-way ticket. However, this does not include the P550 terminal fee, P2,680 fuel surcharge, P1,620 travel tax and P972 country-specific tax.

“Cebu Pacific is proud to make the island of Phuket accessible to even more travelers. Our PHP999 seat sale is 71% off our year-round fares. We encourage everyone to take advantage of CEB’s trademark lowest fares to this world-renowned tourist attraction,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

Phuket is one of the most popular island destinations in Southeast Asia. It is famous for its many beaches, as well as Phang-nga Bay and Phi Phi island, which was featured in the Leonardo DiCaprio film “The Beach.”

Phuket is the Gokongwei-led airline’s second destination in Thailand, after Bangkok.
