Cebu Pacific to fly daily between Cebu & Seoul


Travelers from Visayas region will now more access to direct flight to Seoul, South Korea as the Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific (CEB), continues to expand its Cebu hub by ramping up its direct flights to Seoul.

In a press statement, the airline said starting September 9, it will increase its flights from Cebu to Seoul (Incheon) to a daily operation from its current twice-a-week service.   

“These additional flights will enable more passengers from VisMin to fly to South Korea any day of the week so they may finally make their travel dreams a reality. This ramp-up just two months after the route is a testament to our commitment to everyJuan and reflects the travel demand amongst Filipinos and foreigners,” said CEB Corporate Communications Director, Carmina Reyes-Romero. 

Flight 5J 128 is scheduled to depart Mactan Cebu International Airport at 12:25PM and will arrive at 6:10PM (Korea local time). Its return flight, 5J 129, is scheduled to depart Seoul at 6:55PM and arrive in Cebu at 10:50PM (Philippine local time). 

CEB currently flies to Cebu from 22 domestic destinations, namely, Bacolod, Boracay, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Calbayog, Camiguin, Clark, Coron, Davao, Dipolog, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Legazpi, Manila, Ozamiz, Pagadian, Puerto Princesa, Siargao, Surigao, Tacloban, and Zamboanga. 

“With our extensive domestic network in and out of Cebu, we are happy to provide more flight connections to our passengers. We hope this encourages everyJuan to fly more and travel international for less via Cebu Pacific,” added Romero.  

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.
