China Southern Airlines announced its new direct flight between Guangzhou and the city of Cebu on Jan 22nd. This is the second direct flight linking Guangzhou and the Philippines.

The air route operates three times a week using a Boeing 738, according to the airline. The service runs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The flight departs Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport at 12:35, and arrives in Cebu at 16:05 (local time), lasting about 3 hours and 30 minutes. The return flight leaves Cebu at 17:15, and arrives in Guangzhou at 20:25, lasting about 3 hours and 10 minutes.

Located in the middle of the Philippines, the city of Cebu is the second largest city in the country. It’s the country’s main destination for international routes and also a significant center of commerce, with a name of “The Queen City of the South”. Cebu is a very beautiful city with countless beaches and nature parks. It offers a relaxing retreat in a tropical island as well as all the conveniences that a first class metropolis can give. In contrast to the bustling metropolis, the rest of Cebu’s 167 islets and islands are lined with idyllic white sandy beaches and pristine clear waters.

January 22nd marks the second day of this year’s Spring Festival travel rush. According to the airlines, about 280,000 passengers traveled via over 1900 flights that day. In the following two days, about 200 flights will be added to support the travel rush.

At present, tickets from Guangzhou to Wuhan, Kunming, Chengdu, and also that from Beijing to Sanya and Chengdu during the Spring Festival are available and discount will be applied when purchasing. Also international tickets from Guangzhou to Paris and Amsterdam are still available.
