A Facebook post from Royal Air revealed its much-awaited plans in launching five new exciting routes out of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport by the end of May 2019.

Starting May 20, 2019, Royal Air will launch Cebu to Davao and Cebu to Puerto Princesa flights both to be serviced four times weekly—every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The next day, Cebu to Cagayan de Oro, Caticlan, and Manila are expected to be launched. Flights to Cagayan de Oro and Caticlan will operate three times a week every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, while flights to Manila operate daily.

On the other hand, the airline will reduce its Clark to Caticlan and Puerto Princesa flights from daily to only four times weekly.

All flights are operated by a 97-seater British Aerospace (BAe) Avro RJ-100 series — a four-engine regional airliner also known as Whisperjet for its very quiet operation, according to their website. Citing latest data retrieved from, Royal Air Philippines currently operates three of the said aircraft type.
