Cebu Pacific Now Offering Free Rebooking for May and June Flights
To be on the safe side.
(SPOT.ph) Following the global outbreak of COVID-19, Metro Manila was put under community quarantine from March 15 to April 14 (and later, a Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine until April 12). One of the most affected sectors is aviation, with the flag carrier announcing a "pause in Philippine Airlines operations" with a resumption planned for April 15, "if warranted by Philippine and international authorities, global public health conditions and the travel environment." Local low-cost airline Cebu Pacific, on the other hand, has made further changes to their rebooking policies in case ticket-holders opt to cancel or postpone their flights originally scheduled from April 15 to June 30. The airline plans to resume operations as soon as the community quarantine ends.
If you're affected by airline cancelations for flights from March 15 to April 14, you have the following options:
- Rebook your flight until June 30 with zero rebooking fee and waived fare difference
- Put the full cost of your flight in a virtual wallet called Travel Fund, which you can use as payment for future bookings within 180 days and for travel date within 12 months
- Do a full refund
If you wish to voluntarily cancel your flights from April 15 to June 30, Cebu Pacific is offering the following choices:
- Rebook your flight with no limit on travel validity and waived change fee. However, since this is not an airline cancelation, fare difference still applies.
- Refund through the Travel Fund, which you can use as payment for future bookings within 180 days and for travel date within 12 months
In a public briefing on March 18, Department of Health undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said that up to 75,000 cases can be recorded in a span of three months should appropriate interventions not be put in place. "Ito po ay nakuha natin base po doon sa statistics na mayroon tayo ngayon among all cases across the globe na sinasabi po na puwedeng magkaroon ng reproductive rate ang ating virus ng one person can transmit it to two persons in just one sitting," the undersecretary explained.
