Cebu Pacific Announces 19 Domestic Leisure Destinations Open for Fully Vaccinated Travelers
Fully vaccinated travelers to 19 leisure destinations in Cebu Pacific’s network will no longer be required to take a COVID-19 PCR test. Requirements may still include a vaccination certificate or card, travel permits from S-Pass, confirmed accommodations and tracing app registration.
On Thursday (February 3, 2022), Cebu Pacific announced that COVID-19 PCR testing will no longer be required for fully-vaccinated customers traveling to 19 leisure destinations in the carriers network. Guests can now enjoy test-free travel to Bohol, Boracay, Butuan, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu (Cebu City and Mandaue City), Clark, Maguindanao Province, Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Legazpi, Manila, Naga, Ozamiz, San Jose, Tacloban, and Tuguegarao.
In Thursday’s announcement, Cebu Pacific’s Chief Commercial Officer, Xander Lao, said,
“This is a welcome development, and we appreciate the various LGUs’ [Local Government Units] efforts to further ease travel for everyJuan, especially for fully vaccinated individuals. This will jumpstart the return of tourists and pave the way for the recovery of the local tourism industry, which we are also ready to support with a ramp-up in flight frequencies as needed.”
Depending on the destination, travelers will still be subject to other requirements including the presentation of a vaccination certificate or card, a government issued ID, travel permits from S-Pass, confirmed accommodations, and registration to specific contact tracing apps. Butuan and Cagayan de Oro only require fully-vaccinated travelers to upload their vaccination status via S-Pass. For travel to Legazpi Airport, customers must report to their LGU (Local Government Unit) for symptoms screening and profiling, and are also required to download the Traze app. Clark will require a valid ID and any document required by the LGU, while Cebu Province, Lapu-Lapu City and Davao do not require fully-vaccinated visitors to present any travel documents for entry.
