We have taken extra precautions to ensure travelers that preventive measures are in place so we can start rebuilding the trust and confidence in air travel.”
Government travel regulations from the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan will be implemented as required, including the requirement to achieve a negative RT-PCR test prior to departure, mandatory COVID-19 screening or tests and mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival. In accordance with global safety standards, Cebu Pacific has implemented health and safety protocols across the entire guest journey, from online check-in to ground facilities and contactless flight procedures. The carrier’s aircraft undergo extensive disinfection before, during and after all flights, and are equipped with hospital operating theater grade HEPA filters that remove 99.9 percent of airborne particulates, including viruses. Cebu Pacific has also introduced enhanced flexibility for guests with unlimited rebooking and extension of their ‘Travel Fund’ validity for up to two years.
