CEBU Pacific (CEB) is set to launch twice-weekly direct flights from Manila to its second Indonesian destination, Bali, next year.
“CEB will launch its direct service from Manila to Bali on March 16, 2013, just in time for peak summer travel in the Philippines,” said CEB vice president for marketing and distribution, Candice Iyog.
CEB currently also operates a four-times-weekly service to Jakarta.
The service will run every Tuesday and Saturday, departing Manila at 04.00 and arriving in Denpasar at 07.50. On the return leg, the flight will leave Denpasar at 08.35 and touch down in Manila at 12.25.
The carrier is holding an introductory sale, with tickets from Manila to Bali going for 888 pesos (US$21.60) for the travel period of March 16-June 30, 2013.
The offer is valid from November 20-23, or until all seats are sold, after which lowest year-round fares for Bali start at 3,499 pesos. CEB says this is up to 38 per cent lower than other airlines.
