Cebu Pacific flies to two Bangkok airports

MANILA, 13 May 2024: Cebu Pacific, a low-cost airline serving the Phillippines, will boost flights to Bangkok with a three-weekly service from Manila to Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport (DMK) starting 16 July.

Cebu Pacific announced the new service in a press statement released last week, confirming it will fly to Bangkok’s second airport on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday using an A320.

It opens a second Bangkok gateway for the airline, which already flies twice daily from Manila to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK).

Flight 5J863 departs Manila at 1925 and arrives at Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport (DMK) at 2200.
Flight 5J864 departs Don Mueang Airport (DMK) at 2300 and arrives in Manila at 0340 plus a day.

Bookings are open on online travel agency sites quoting a roundtrip fare of USD140 on Cebu Pacific during the latter half of July. The airline will compete head-on with Philippines AirAsia. It flies the same route, BKK-DMK, twice daily (morning and evening) using A320s, with the lowest fare pegged at USD162.

The new service increases Cebu Pacific frequencies to Bangkok to 17 flights a week (twice daily to BKK and three weekly to DMK). Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport is located in the city’s northern suburbs, and Suvarnabhumi Airport is a short distance from the Gulf of Thailand, which is southeast of the capital. The two airports are 50 km apart. 

“Bangkok remains one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia, with its majestic pagodas, flavourful cuisine, and vibrant cultural festivals. We are excited to bring more travellers to this beautiful city as we launch our operations in DMK,” said CEB President and Chief Commercial Officer Xander Lao.

Bangkok was one of CEB’s first international destinations, and flights launched there in  2006. In addition, CEB operates direct flights between Clark and Bangkok daily. 

CEB flies to 35 domestic and 24 international destinations across Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.
