Airline to restart Cebu-Seoul flights 2x weekly by July

The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific, continues to expand its regional footprint as it announces the resumption of its international flights from Cebu, beginning with Cebu to South Korea.

On July 3, CEB intends to operate twice weekly flights from Cebu to Seoul (Incheon), every Thursday and Sunday. Flight 5J 128 is estimated to depart the Mactan Cebu International Airport at 12:25PM, and arrive at Seoul International Airport at 6:10PM. Its return flight, 5J 129, is scheduled to leave Seoul at 6:55PM, and will arrive in Cebu at 10:50PM.

This is the first international destination that the airline is restarting from its Cebu hub, following the reopening of South Korea for tourists.

“We are very happy to restart this flight as we know passengers in the Visayas and Mindanao have been looking forward to traveling internationally again, without needing to pass by Manila. We hope to expand our international network more in the coming months as we’ve already stabilized operating over 100% of our pre-pandemic domestic capacity,” said Xander Lao, CEB Chief Commercial Officer.

Fully vaccinated travelers flying to Seoul need to bring their negative COVID-19 test result taken within 48 hours before departure, valid vaccination certificate, and a filled-out foreigner registration card. For more information, passengers may refer to CEB Travel reminders page for the latest updates and complete travel guidelines to their destination.

CEB continues to offer its guaranteed low fares to stimulate travel across its widest domestic network in the Philippines. It continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety, while it operates with a 100% fully vaccinated crew, 91% of whom have been boosted – all to ensure its every Juan flies safely and conveniently on Cebu Pacific.
