MANILA – Air passengers heading to Thailand will have more options as low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) announced the launch of three weekly flights to Don Mueang starting July 16.

"Bangkok remains one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia, with its majestic pagodas, flavorful cuisine and vibrant cultural festivals," CEB President Xander Lao said in a statement Thursday.

The Gokongwei-led airline currently flies between Manila and Bangkok via Suvarnabhumi Airport twice daily.

With the launch of direct flights to Don Mueang International Airport every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, CEB's Manila-Bangkok total weekly frequencies will increase to 17.

Only low-cost carrier AirAsia currently flies to Don Mueang from the Philippines.

CEB launched its maiden service between Manila and Bangkok in 2006.

Aside from Manila, CEB also flies daily to Bangkok via Clark. (PNA)
