  1. Which destinations does Cebu Pacific fly to?


    Our flight schedule and routes can be referred to here. This link is updated daily to reflect the latest advisories on destinations and other important reminders.

    As this is a developing situation, we may reduce or add flights depending on passenger demand, travel conditions, and local government unit or international restrictions. We continue to work with national and international authorities to make sure we adhere to all regulations.

    We would like to remind everyone that only guests with confirmed flights shall be allowed entry in the airport.


  2. How will I know if my flight is cancelled?

    Flights are pushing through unless a cancellation notice is sent to your booking’s registered email address. You will also receive pre-flight and online check-in reminders at least 24 hours before your flight. You can also check this link for flight schedules. Please make sure your contact information is updated so we can reach you for updates on your flight schedule. You can update your contact information via Manage Booking.

    As the situation is very fluid, we will do our best to provide enough lead time for guests to prepare for flights. We request for your patience and understanding on possible last-minute changes to comply with authority regulations.


  3. Is it safe to fly?

    Yes. Our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our guests and employees. To provide you peace of mind, we are actively coordinating with local and international authorities, regulators, and health experts, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) to ensure each flight we operate complies with the highest standards set for safety and sanitation.

    All CEB aircrafts undergo extensive daily disinfection, which includes the misting of the cabin using a disinfectant approved for Airbus jets that is effective in eradicating viruses including the Novel Coronavirus. This process also ensures that all surfaces (such as passenger seats, overhead bins and cargo compartments) are covered and sanitized.

  4. How clean is the air inside the aircraft?

    Our fleet of Airbus jets are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Arrestor (HEPA) filters that are capable of filtering microscopic bacteria and virus clusters, including the Novel Coronavirus with 99.99% efficiency, like what is used in hospital operating rooms.

    Similarly, our ATR fleet also has an Environment Control System (ECS) that continually circulates the air to keep it clean.

  5. How can we make sure that your staff and crew are virus-free?


    Our pilots and cabin crew undergo rapid antibody tests before they are assigned to operate flights. In addition, all CEB personnel providing you service from check-in to arrival shall be wearing personal protective equipment and practicing physical distancing. This is above and beyond what our regulators require, but we have added these measures to provide both employees and guests that extra sense of comfort.


  6. How can I best protect myself?

    It is best to always keep your personal hygiene in check. Here are some tips:

    • Carry your personal alcohol/sanitizer to clean your hands after touching any surface.
    • Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth if your hands have not been disinfected
    • Always wear a face mask and a face shield when in public. For added protection, wearing gloves is also recommended.

  1. What is Test Before Boarding?

    Test Before Boarding is our initiative that will allow you to travel with (more) peace of mind. This is an added safety precaution wherein passengers are tested for COVID-19 using an Antigen Test. This is FDA-approved, and it is able to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection, which allows us to ensure that the passengers you’ll be in the aircraft with have all tested negative for COVID-19. Additionally, this will also allow for easier entry to your destination.


  2. What is an Antigen Test?

    An Antigen Test is a type of diagnostic test that detects certain proteins of the COVID-19 virus. We’ve partnered with three (3) testing centers to administer Antigen Tests on-site – Health Metrics, Philippine Airport Diagnostic Laboratory, and Safeguard DNA Diagnostics. Any of the three (3) mentioned testing centers can administer the test on-site. It’s more affordable compared to the RT-PCR. It’s a quick nasal or throat swab and results come out in thirty (30) minutes. Once the results show a negative test result, you will be allowed to proceed to the airport.


  3. How accurate is the Antigen Test?

    The Antigen Test is able to detect a current COVID-19 infection in the body, which means that we will know if our passengers are infected right before they proceed to the airport. SD Biosensor, the machine we will use to read test results, has a 97% sensitivity, which is the ability to detect a true positive result.


  4. Where is the on-site testing facility?

    Not yet available.


  5. How do I know where to go?

    Not yet available.


  6. Is this required?

    All guests departing from Manila and bound for identified domestic destinations are required to take the Antigen Test hours before boarding. Since we are testing right before boarding, with controlled contact points in between the test facility and the airport, we can ensure our guests that they are traveling in a safe and clean aircraft, with only passengers who test negative for COVID-19.


  7. How do I know if my flight is affected?

    Not yet available.


  8. Is this free of charge?

    The Antigen Test is not free of charge, but we are offering it at an affordable rate. Please make sure to settle the payment before proceeding to the testing facility.


  9. What if I already have a recent RT-PCR test result?

    While it is true that the RT-PCR is the gold standard for COVID-19 tests, its results are based on the day you got tested. You can still contract the virus days after the RT-PCR test. The Antigen Test is administered right before boarding, ensuring accuracy of the results on the day of the flight.


  10. What is the process for this?

  11. Before Day of Travel

    1. We will send you a check-in reminder via email seven (7) days before your flight. This will lead you to check-in online, as this is now a mandatory procedure to maintain physical distancing in the check-in/bag drop area in the airport. However, prior to checking in online, kindly ensure that all fees are paid.
    2. Once the online check-in is successful, you will receive your Boarding Pass with a QR code. On the Boarding Pass page, you will be prompted to pre-register for your Antigen Test via a link.
    3. When the pre-registration is complete, you will receive an email confirmation, which contains the testing center location and appointment time.
    4. One day before your flight, you will receive Pre-Flight Reminders via email. This will also include your testing center location and appointment time.

    Day of Travel

    1. Please proceed to your designated testing center location and make sure to arrive fifteen (15) minutes before your appointment time to allow for security checks and on-site registration. This should be around four (4) to five (5) hours before your estimated time of departure. Guests who are late to their appointment may be denied testing and consequently, boarding.
    2. Security checks will be conducted at the testing center location upon your arrival. Please be ready to present your travel documents. There will also be a temperature scan. If your temperature exceeds 37.5C, you will not be allowed to enter the testing center location. You may avail of the Voluntary Cancellation options to either rebook your flight or store its value in a Travel Fun.
    3. Once you are allowed entry to the testing center, a queue number will be issued to you. Please proceed to the waiting area and wait for your queue number to appear on the LCD screen.
    4. As soon as your queue number appears on the LCD screen, please proceed to the Antigen Testing area. Your QR code will be scanned for identification purposes and a tester will administer the Antigen Test. The specimen collected will be incubated and an evaluator will provide the test reading.
    5. Proceed to the waiting area again while your results are not yet available.
    6. When your queue number appears on the screen again, you may collect your printed Antigen Test result. This comes with instructions for the next steps of your journey.

  12. What happens if I don’t undergo the testing procedure?

    As this is a new flight requirement, guests who do not undergo the procedure for any reason shall be denied boarding. Guests may avail of the Voluntary Cancellation options to either rebook the flight or store its value in a Travel Fund.


  13. What happens if I test negative?

    Not yet available.


  14. What happens if I test positive?

    We’re sorry to hear that. Should you test positive for COVID-19, you will not be allowed entry in the airport. Disruption options are available for you – you can either rebook your flight, store its value in a Travel Fund, or refund it completely. Available healthcare professionals will guide you through the next steps.


  15. If I test positive, but the other passengers in the same booking reference do not, does that mean they can still take the flight?

    Yes. All passengers who test negative for COVID-19 based on the Antigen Test right before boarding will be allowed to board. Otherwise, if traveling as a group is a must, voluntary cancellation options are available.
