This is to inform you that Qatar Airways has revealed on the GDS system that it shal be suspending all flights to CEB-Cebu, Philippines effective 26MAR 2012. All flights have been zero'd out in the GDS system for the entire S12 season as seen below:

QR currently operates 3 times per week to CEB using a 2 class configured A330-200 which seats 259 pax.
It launched CEB many years ago with an AB6 operated via SIN with 5th freedom traffic rights.
So after LGW, RGN and EWR, this is the only 4th route that I can think of that QR has suspended since the turn of the century. Any more?
I would have kept CEB online and operated it via HKG if it could not be operated nonstop with an A332 due to aircraft shortage issues. As it is, QR's HKG route struggles to be filled with over 65% S/F so tagging it on to CEB would not be a big drain on the finances.
