Cebu Pacific said Thursday it would resume international operations from its Cebu hub starting July with twice weekly flights to Seoul, as South Korea reopened to tourists.
Starting July 3, Cebu Pacific intends to operate twice weekly flights from Cebu to Incheon Airport, every Thursday and Sunday. It will be the first international route to be restarted from the Cebu hub.
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. Its return flight, 5J 129, is scheduled to leave Seoul at 6:55 p.m. and 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, CEB Chief Commercial Officer.
Fully vaccinated travelers intending to travel to Seoul must present a negative COVID-19 test result taken 48 hours before departure, a valid vaccination certificate, and a foreigner registration card.
