Cebu Pacific to Make Flying Direct from Cebu to Tokyo Possible

Japan is such a fascinating place that traveling to this country is on top of every globetrotter’s bucket list. However, direct flights to this country are not available to all, which can make the cost of the trip more expensive. Thankfully, Filipinos can now fly directly to Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka). This has been made possible by Cebu Pacific this year. In fact, they will soon be offering direct flights from Cebu to Japan.

Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and Distribution said, “Cebu Pacific has a good track record of stimulating travel because of its low fares and network. With this direct access to Cebu, we hope more Japanese tourist will visit the Philippines, just in time for the Visit the Philippines Year 2015.”

Cebu’s Mactan Island is paradise for many beach lovers. Since time immemorial, it has become a very popular destination among many Japanese tourists. Hence, it is the perfect jump-off point for other tourist destinations where Cebu Pacific flies to, like Boracay, Palawan, Siargao and Bohol to name a few.

“This new route also makes travel to Japan more convenient for those coming from the Visayas and Mindanao. We are launching direct Cebu-Tokyo flights just in time for the cherry blossom season in Japan. We hope more Filipinos can plan their trips ahead and experience this wonderful destination,” Ms. Iyog added.

If you’re a Cebuano and have always dreamed of visiting Japan, then you’ll soon be able to do so without much hassle with the help of Cebu Pacific. The new route special fares will start from Php2,488 from March 26 to 31, 2014.
