Qatar Airways has started flying directly from Doha to Cebu.
The first flight was on 24 July from Doha’s Hamad International (DOH) to Mactan Cebu International (CEB) using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
It is the first time Qatar Airways has flown the 10 hour flight to Cebu for eight years. The relaunching of flights to Cebu will see the airline’s network in the Philippines expand to 13 weekly flights:
- Manila (nine weekly flights)
- Clark (one weekly flight)
- Cebu (three weekly flights)
Cebu joins Brisbane and Toronto as new destinations launched by the airline during the COVID-19 crisis.
Qatar will also resume its first China flights with a once weekly Guangzhou service starting 26 July.
