Emirates will launch a daily circular service from Dubai to Cebu and Clark in the Philippines starting March 30, the airline said in a statement issued in Doha.
“With the opening of this service, Emirates will enhance the choice for travellers in the Philippines, who will be able to conveniently connect to 39 cities in Europe, 16 in the Middle East as well as a number of destinations across our extensive network in Africa and the Americas, including Panama from February 1,” Emirates executive vice president and chief commercial officer Thierry Antinori said.
He added that this new service will help to enhance the Philippines’ trade links with the rest of the world and boost incoming tourism.
Emirates will use a Boeing 777-300ER for this new route which is expected to strengthen international connectivity to two of the Philippines’ fastest-growing international hubs.
The island of Cebu lies in Visayas, one of the three principal geographical divisions of the Philippines.
Mactan-Cebu International Airport, located on Cebu’s Mactan Island, is the second busiest airport in the Philippines, after Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Clark is based in Pampanga, a province in the Central Luzon region in the Philippines and a well-known hub for business processing services and tourism. Pampanga is served by Clark International Airport which is in Clark Freeport Zone, a redevelopment of the former Clark Air Base, previously a United States Air Force base in the Philippines.
