Cebu Pacific expands flights to Malaysia: Intends to resume Manila-Kota Kinabalu flights this month

The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), continues to expand its international network with the resumption of flights to Kota Kinabalu, bringing the number of its international destinations to 19.

Apart from Kota Kinabalu, CEB also flies to the following international destinations: Bali, Bangkok, Brunei, Dubai, Japan (Fukuoka, Narita, Nagoya, Osaka), Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Taipei and Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi).

Starting October 31, 2022, CEB’s flights to Kota Kinabalu will operate two times a week, every Monday and Friday; while its return flights will fly every Tuesday and Saturday.

5J 733 is scheduled to depart Manila at 11:25pm and arrive at Kota Kinabalu at 1:50am the next day. Its return flight, 5J 734, departs Kota Kinabalu International Airport at 2:35am and arrives at the NAIA Terminal 3 at 4:40am.

“We invite everyJuan to experience another side of Malaysia.  Adventure seekers are up for a treat – from island hopping to nature tripping to trekking – our flight resumption to Sabah, Malaysia’s capital, will make all these within reach,” said Xander Lao, Chief Commercial Officer at CEB.

All guests bound for Kota Kinabalu must download and register for the MySejahtera mobile app to indicate their COVID-19 risk status.

All guests exiting the Philippines are required to print and fill out the Bureau of Immigration form before departure.

“As more destinations ease travel restrictions, including the Philippines, flying back to the country has been made convenient for boosted individuals.  They no longer need to submit pre-flight COVID 19 test results upon check-in and, can skip quarantine upon arrival,” added Lao.
