Part of the reasons that the cater only to Cebu is because Cebu was able to bring in a number of tourists from other countries. A couple of their programs provide discounts and promos to both members and to-be flyers to partner merchants of the airlines.

Their available flights are:
- Manila and Seoul (vice versa)
- Cebu and Busan, Muan, or Seoul (vice versa)

Although JejuAir caters more destinations across the Asia Pacific, if you’re coming from the Philippines, the destinations you can actually travel to are still limited. However, businesses between our country and South Korea are on the move to improving this for better traveling. Also, if you’re planning to travel to Jeju Island, there’s no direct flight going there. What you have to do is to fly to Seoul and take another flight to Jeju Island.
