The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB) became the first and only airline to operate flights between Manila and Siem Reap, Cambodia, when its maiden flight took off from Manila last April 19, 2012 at 7:45pm, arriving in Siem Reap at 9:30pm.
His Excellency Hos Serythonh, Ambassador of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia to the Republic of the Philippines and NAIA Terminal 3 Manager Octavio Lina sent off the maiden Manila – Siem Reap passengers.
“Our maiden Manila – Siem Reap is taking off with a full 180 passenger load, marking a momentous occasion for Philippine-Cambodia tourism. A lot of passengers visiting the World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat can take advantage of CEB’s direct flight and trademark lowest fares for their travel convenience,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
CEB now operates a Manila – Siem Reap – Manila service every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, using the largest and youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. The regular return flight departs Siem Reap at 10:30pm, arriving in Manila at 2:10am.
Lowest year-round fares for this route start at P3,499.
“We are happy that Cebu Pacific chose Cambodia to be part of its extensive Asia-Pacific network, as the only airline to operate the Manila – Siem Reap route. These direct flights to Siem Reap will undoubtedly contribute significantly to the development of tourism and trade between our two countries, and to enhancing the connectivity of our airport. We know this is only the beginning of our cooperation with Cebu Pacific,” said Cambodia Airports Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Menanteau.
CEB operates flights from the Philippines to the most number of capital cities in the ASEAN, and serve the most number of routes. It offers more than 90 flights per week from the Philippines to 8 ASEAN destinations in 6 countries. (Ref: Selrahco)
