The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific announced it is set to launch non-stop flights between Kuwait and Manila this coming September, to serve more Filipino expats. CEB will launch thrice weekly flights between Kuwait and Manila on September 2, 2014.

“We are very excited to finally be able to offer a direct, non-stop service between Manila and Kuwait. We remain true to our goal of serving Global Filipinos, wherever they may be, so they can go home or travel more often. It is always music to our ears when passengers tell us they can now travel long-haul more than once a year, primarily because of our low fares,” said CEB General Manager for Long-Haul Division Alex Reyes.
