Budget carrier Cebu Pacific launched on Thursday its twice a week non-stop flights between Manila and Doha, Qatar, becoming the only Philippine carrier flying between the two cities.
The non-stop service departs Manila every Monday and Thursday at 9:35 p.m., arriving in Doha at 2:45 a.m. the next day. The return flight departs Doha every Tuesday and Friday at 4:15 a.m., arriving in Manila at 6:35 p.m.
The lowest year-round fares between Manila and Doha start at P9,488, which Cebu Pacific said is approximately 60 percent lower than other airlines.
“We look forward to offering Cebu Pacific’s trademark low fares to travelers in Doha, especially since we are the only low-cost carrier operating this route. With our expanding network, Qatar becomes more accessible from the Philippines, and the Filipino community can reunite with their families more often,” said Alex Reyes, general manager for long-haul division at Cebu Pacific.
The new route utilizes the airline’s brand-new Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with a configuration of 436 all-economy class seats.
Wilfredo Santos, the Philippine Ambassador to Qatar, said Cebu Pacific’s presence in Qatar will not only benefit the more than 200,000 Filipinos, but also both Qataris and the country’s flourishing expat population.
Aside from Qatar, which has the third-largest Filipino community in the Middle East, Cebu Pacific is also serving United Arab Emirates via direct flights to Dubai, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia via Riyadh.
