Cebu Pacific Eyes Resumption Of Kota Kinabalu Flights In October

Low-cost airline Cebu Pacific (CEB) intends to resume its services between Manila and Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, beginning Oct. 31.

“We stopped operating (Kota Kinabalu route) in March 2020 due to the pandemic. We intend to resume operations on Oct. 31, twice weekly,” CEB corporate communications manager Michelle Lim said Monday.

Flights from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport will be every Monday and Friday at 11:25 p.m., while return flights from Kota Kinabalu will be every Tuesday and Saturday at 2:35 a.m.

Those bound for Malaysia are required to download the MySejahtera app, register and indicate their coronavirus risk status. Everyone exiting the Philippines, on the other hand, should print and fill out the Immigration form before their flight schedule.

“As more destinations ease travel restrictions, flying back to the country has been made convenient for boosted individuals. They no longer need to submit a Covid-19 test results upon check-in,” CEB chief commercial officer Xander Lao said in a statement.

The carrier said it now operates 88 percent of its pre-pandemic capacity, and currently services 34 domestic and 19 international destinations. At least 95 percent of its crew have already received booster shots against Covid-19. (PNA)
