Cebu to Singapore Flights Connects Local Hubs to Singapore
“These direct Cebu to Singapore flights and route resumption is part of our long-term commitment to rebuilding our pre-pandemic systemwide capacity,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific’s Chief Commercial Officer. He continued that this direct flight enables passengers from 22 other domestic destinations to travel to Singapore via Cebu, including Clark, Davao, Dumaguete, Tacloban, and Zamboanga, among others.
“We’re glad to be able to reintroduce these direct twice-weekly Cebu to Singapore flights so that more passengers from Cebu and the rest of our network, particularly those in Mindanao and the Visayas areas, can fly internationally without having to go through Manila.
Aside from Singapore, the airline has resumed operations to Seoul from its Cebu base in early July 2022.
Visitors who have previously visited Singapore and are fully immunized do not need to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test and are not required to be quarantined upon arrival. Instead, they must produce evidence of full vaccination (VaxCertPH or BOQ Yellow Card) and complete a Singapore Arrival Card three (3) days before arrival.
Returning to Cebu has eliminated the need for Filipinos to take a COVID test before departure. For the most up-to-date information and comprehensive travel directions, passengers may visit the Cebu Pacific Travel Requirements for Singapore for further details and complete instructions.

History of Cebu Pacific and Singapore
Cebu Pacific Airlines first commenced flights to Singapore in 2006. At the time, the route was only offered three times per week. The airline later increased the frequency of flights to four times per week in 2009. However, Cebu Pacific eventually ceased direct flights to Singapore in 2012 due to low demand.
The airline has now decided to resume direct flights between Cebu and Singapore which were suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding travel alerts. This resumed route will be initially offered three times per week and is expected to boost Cebu Pacific’s international operations from the Cebu hub.
Cebu Pacific is the largest airline in the Philippines and this new route will provide passengers with convenient access to Singapore from 22 domestic destinations. This will include flights from Clark, Davao, Dumaguete, Tacloban, and Zamboanga, among others.
The airline is committed to providing safe and reliable service to its customers. All crew members are 100% vaccinated and the aircraft is operated with a multi-layered approach to safety. Cebu Pacific is also offering low fares to encourage travel across its broad domestic network in the Philippines.
