Airasia Cebu To Singapore Direct Flights

AirAsia has formally announced it will fly direct to Singapore from Cebu starting November 25. Cebu bloggers scored big last November 10 when invited by AirAsia to a night filled with fun, games, entertainment and food – some of the attractions of Singapore.

To celebrate the launch of the route, AirAsia is offering promotional fares now available on airasia.com.

Philippines AirAsia CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “The addition of the Cebu-Singapore route enables us to strengthen our Cebu hub and further connect Cebuanos to our Asean neighbours.”

Singapore Tourism Board area director for Philippines Lael Loh said, “The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) congratulates AirAsia on its newest destination milestone in the Philippines. We are excited by the opening of the new Cebu-Singapore route, which will provide more opportunities for Filipino travellers to discover, experience, and enjoy the multitude of offerings in the Lion City.”

AirAsia’s newest Cebu-Singapore announcement came two days after its executives led by its CEO Dexter Comendador with Department of Tourism head for route development Erwin Balane and Taiwan Economic Cultural Office director for press division Jerry Cheng-An Chuang arrived in Cebu last Wednesday (20 October) to formally open the Cebu-Taipei route.

Comendador added, “Cebu is emerging as the fastest growing air hub outside Metro Manila and we are here to connect Cebu to Singapore, Taipei, Korea, Malaysia and onto to AirAsia Group’s massive network of over 120 destinations across Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East and Africa while providing only the best quality service and products.”


Besides Singapore and Taipei, AirAsia announced earlier that it also increased flights between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur from three to four times weekly effective 29 October. AirAsia also services direct flights from Cebu to Incheon (Seoul) in South Korea.

  • Singapore, also known as the City in a Garden, really is a far cry from any ordinary city. Mainly known for its shopping malls, celebrity chef restaurants and exceptional attractions such as the Marina Bay Sands or Gardens by the Bay, there are also countless temples, serene parks and an outstanding array of fauna and flora.

o   Singapore has 4 official languages –English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil – and a rich history and culture that comes with the many different ethnicities living here.
Singapore’s land size was 581,5 km in the 1960’s and has since grown to an impressive 710km, an increase of 22%. Through land-filling, the city-state has plans to grow by another 100 km up to 2030, or nearly double the original size of the island. One example of how land-filling was used to create new space is MarinaBay.

o   Singapore was originally known as Temasek, meaning ‘sea town’ in Javanese. Later, in 1299, an Indonesian king who visited the island and mistook an unknown creature for a lion named it Singapura, Sanskrit for ‘Lion City’. Yet, it is known thatlions never lived on the island. Today, the Merlion, a mythical creature with the head of a lion and body of a fish, is Singapore’s mascot.

o   In 1826, when Sir Raffles Stamford arrived at the banks of the Singapore River, the island had a population of 1,000 Malays and only 20-30 Chinese. Now, the island counts about six million people with a majority(74.2%) being of Chinese origin.

  • Singapore is the second-densest sovereign state in the world, after Monaco. It is also the sixth-wealthiest and 20th-smallestcountry in the world. Known for brands such as Singapore Airlines, Tiger Beer and Tiger Palm, Singapore is also very popular as a global meeting and events venue.
  • There are 17 reservoirs and 4 nature reserves across the island with more than 1.3 million trees, earning Singapore themoniker City in a Garden. Currently, 178 trees are listed as Heritage Trees, of which 14 alone can be found in the Botanic Gardens. Nearly 50% of the city-island is greenery.
  • Singapore has impressive greenery in high-rise buildings – a total of 50ha are rooftops and roof gardens. The three highest buildings are located in the Central Business District, each standing at an impressive 280m tall.
  • The Sands SkyPark is an architectural masterpiece sitting atop the three hotel towers at Marina Bay Sands. This 1.2-hectare tropical oasis is longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall and large enough to park four-and-a-half Airbus A380 jumbo jets.
  • The highest natural point is Bukit Timah Hill, which is only 164m high, yet it contains morespecies of trees than the entire North American continent. For nature lovers, we also recommend MacRitchie Reservoir, Sungei Buloh and Bukit Brown.
