Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier, further expands its Clark hub with the launch of daily flights to South Korea from Clark International Airport, allowing more Juans from north and central Luzon to travel to the K-pop capital of the world.
Starting May 5, CEB will operate direct flights from Clark to Incheon daily. 5J 176 will depart Clark International Airport at 4:35 PM and will arrive in Incheon at 9:45 PM KST. Its return flight, 5J 177 will leave Incheon International Airport at 10:45 PM KST and will arrive in Clark at 2:05 AM on the following day.
Just a four-hour flight from Clark, South Korea is home to one of the most vibrant cultures in East Asia. Known for its world-famous K-BBQ, highly sophisticated television shows and films, beautiful hanbok traditional clothing, and delicious Korean dishes, South Korea remains as a go-to destination for Filipinos of all ages.
The launch of Clark – Incheon route brings the total number of international destinations that can be reached from Clark to six. Previously, CEB announced that it would operate eight domestic and five international destinations in Clark.
To support the expansion, CEB will lease and base 3 aircraft at Clark International Airport. These are on top of the 10 new Airbus NEO aircraft that will be delivered in 2023 to expand the airline’s entire fleet.
CEB now flies to 34 domestic and 25 international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
