Amidst public demand for direct non-stop flights from Asian destinations to Central Visayas, Philippine Airlines (PAL) will be opening a thrice weekly Cebu-Bangkok-Cebu service starting December 2, 2017.

The new flights will serve the route using PAL’s 199-seater Airbus A321 which offers Business, Premium Economy and Economy classes of service.

Passengers will enjoy free baggage allowance, Wi-Fi connectivity, inflight entertainment, and new inflight meals during the 3.45-hour journey.

PR578 (CEB-BKK) departs Mactan, Cebu at 9:25 p.m. every Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday and arrives in Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport at 12:10 a.m. local time. Return flight PR579 (BKK-CEB) leaves Bangkok at 1:30 a.m. local time every Wednesday/Friday/Sunday and touches down at 6:15 a.m.

Travelers from Thailand now fly direct to Cebu and connect to other domestic destinations from there: Bacolod, Busuanga, Butuan, Cagayan, Caticlan, Davao, Camiguin, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Ozamiz, Puerto Princesa, Siargao, and Tacloban.

 From Cebu, visitors may also take PAL flights to Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Seoul (Incheon), Singapore, Chengdu, and Beijing (Peking).
