How long is the flight to Cebu?

Flights to Cebu, Philippines from New Zealand range from about 13h-30h. Your precise flight time will depend on your departure city, as well as the number and length of any layovers you incur along the way. If you’re departing from as far north as Auckland, your flight time is likely to be on the shorter end of the spectrum, whereas those flying out of Queenstown or Dunedin are likely to have flights that are closer to the 30 hour mark, thanks to their geographical location, which increases the likelihood of stopovers.

Where can you get direct flights to Cebu from?
