MANILA, Philippines - Budget carrier Cebu Pacific will end its flights between Manila and Damman by March 30, The Philippine Star reported.

The Philippine Star quoted Cebu Pacific general manager for long haul division Alex Reyes as saying they decided to suspend the flights because of poor load factor.

"We have decided to suspend services for now, as loads on the Dammam-Manila sector are poor," he said.

It has only been five months since Cebu Pacific started its three weekly flights to Dammam in October. In February, the airline reduced the service to twice a week.

Cebu Pacific has contacted affected passengers for options, either full refund or travel fund.
