MANILA, Philippines–Cebu Pacific will expand direct flights to the United States via Hawaii by mid-2015, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a statement Tuesday.

“Cebu Pacific is hoping to have its inaugural flight to Honolulu from Manila in the middle of next year. It will be the air carrier’s second route to the US, next to Guam,” the DFA said.


Cebu Pacific made the announcement following a meeting with Philippine Consulate General to Honololu Gina A. Jamoralin.

“Jamoralin expressed appreciation for Cebu Pacific’s announcement, which will open up more opportunities for business and tourism travels for the Filipino and American people through its offer of competitive airfare and thrice-a-week Manila-Honolulu flights in 2015,” it said.


The Philippines was upgraded to Category 1 status by the US Federal Aviation Authority early in 2015 allowing Philippine carriers to expand the number of direct flights to the US.
