MANILA – Starting August 15, some flights of Cebu Pacific will be transferring to Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 4 (NAIA-4) to maximize the airport’s runway space.
Cebu Pacific announced on Friday that flights utilizing turbo-prop or ATR aircraft (Manila to Caticlan, Busuanga, Laoag and Naga) will operate out of NAIA-4.
The following select flights will also be operating out of NAIA-4:
• 5J 337/338 Manila-Kalibo-Manila
• 5J 345/346 Manila-Kalibo-Manila
• 5J 557/556 Manila-Cebu-Manila on Wednesdays and Saturdays
• 5J 557 Manila-Cebu on August 24 only
• 5J 556 Cebu-Manila on September 10 only
• 5J 579 Manila-Cebu on October 3 only
Meanwhile, all Cebgo flights will also be operating out of NAIA Terminal 3 starting August 15.
These flights are those between Manila and Bacolod, Butuan, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Puerto Princesa, Roxas, Tacloban, and Tagbilaran.
“This is in line with the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) advisory, dated May 28, 2015, to maximize runway space at NAIA. Cebu Pacific fully supports this government effort to improve air traffic conditions in Manila,” the airline said in a statement.
“The Cebu Pacific group advises its passengers of the following terminal changes for those departing from and arriving in Manila. Flight times remain the same,” it added.
For the first four months of 2015, Cebu Pacific and Cebgo flew nearly 6 million passengers, about 11 percent more than the 5.37 million it serviced in the same period last year.
The airline recently ordered 16 ATR 72-600 aircraft from European turboprop jet manufacturer ATR in a deal worth $673 million.
