The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), restarts its direct flights to Hong Kong from Manila beginning September 1, 2021. The carrier intends to fly six times weekly (daily except Saturdays) for the month of September.
CEB has been gradually rebuilding its international network as it answers the need for more flights to carry essential travelers.
“There is latent travel demand and we remain cautiously optimistic as we boost operations where it is needed most. We continue to listen to our passengers and we do all that we can to address their needs while we remain committed to prioritize everyjuan’s health and safety,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer at Cebu Pacific.
Passengers bound for Hong Kong need to complete the HKG Department of Health Online Declaration form and bring with them a negative RT-PCR test result conducted within 72 hours before the scheduled time of departure.
All guests must also show their confirmation of room reservation in a hotel in Hong Kong for not less than 21 days.
Those who have been fully-vaccinated are required to show their recognized vaccination record. For latest updates, guests may visit: bit.ly/HKG_COVID-19
