ĐÀ NẴNG — Cebu Pacific Air new Manila-Đà Nẵng connection saw 177 passengers on the inaugural flight land at Đà Nẵng International Airport on Thursday, December 7.

The Philippines national flag carrier will begin operating the new route three times a week each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with an Airbus A320NEO aircraft.

Đà Nẵng is the third city in Việt Nam that Cebu Pacific Air now flies direct to, after Hà Nội and HCM City.

In celebration of the new route, the city’s tourism department presented all passengers with vouchers for Sky 36 Bar and an áo dài (traditional long dress) show.

Vice Chairman of Đà Nẵng People’s Committee Trần Chí Cường said the introduction of the route resulted from endless efforts since the successful Route Asia in 2022 forum, an event dedicated to accelerating the aviation industry’s recovery across the Asia-Pacific region, organised by Đà Nẵng.

The Philippines is a new and potential market to Đà Nẵng tourism industry, aiming at diversifying international tourists in the coming years, he said.
