Cebu Pacific Three-step Approach to Boosting Travel Confidence

Thursday, December 10, 2020

I miss traveling, but the past months I can't seem to see myself hopping on a plane anytime soon. But seeing posts of people I follow on Instagram flying to Boracay or Bohol gave me a spark of hope that the travel bug will be back sooner than I thought. I might need the change of scenery early next year. Will you plan a trip on 2021 too?

I have a lot of questions in my mind how the "new normal travel" will go about. I like that Cebu Pacific is aggressive in promoting not only local tourism but also travel protocols and important information. These give future travellers a clearer picture of what to expect, and a bit of peace of mind.

Cebu Pacific has what they call the "Three-step approach to boosting travel confidence", which includes SANITATION & SAFETY, TRACK & TRACE, and TESTING. Sharing more info about these below.

SANITATION & SAFETY: CEB’s 7-star COVID Safety Rating 

When it comes to sanitation and safety, Cebu Pacific strictly implements its multi-layered approach in accordance with global aviation standards. This includes extensive daily disinfection of aircraft, frequent cleaning of passenger surfaces at the airport and inflight, coupled with the presence of hospital-grade High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters onboard that are proven to eliminate 99.99% of viruses.

These are on top of CEB’s enhanced self-service online channels that enable guests to easily manage their flights online, as well as update pertinent information that may be required upon entry to a destination. 

Contactless Flight procedures are also in place, such as boarding pass scanning, mandatory online check-in and self-bag tagging capabilities. 

TRACK & TRACE with DOTr’s Traze App

The Department of Transportation has recently launched a unified contact tracing app for the aviation industry and all other transport sectors. This requires people transiting through all airports in the Philippines to register in the app called “Traze,” and scan QR codes at designated areas in the airports.

CEB commends the DOTr for launching this single platform as the carrier believes this will result in a more efficient tracing initiative. CEB has been sending constant reminders to its employees and passengers to ensure everyJuan is informed of this requirement, which aims to make travel safe for all.

TESTING: Affordable testing options 

A number of local destinations currently require negative RT-PCR test results prior to entry, that is why CEB has made sure the journey remains affordable and hassle-free for everyJuan. 

Passengers booked on Cebu Pacific and Cebgo can easily choose and book appointments with any of its three partner laboratories via for PHP 3,300.

CEB has also recently piloted its Test Before Boarding (TBB) process for passengers flying direct from Manila to General Santos City for a two-week trial period until December 14, 2020. This initiative is the first of its kind in the country, allowing passengers to conveniently have their antigen tests administered at the NAIA Terminal 3 just hours before their estimated time of departure. Results are released within 30 minutes, and only those holding negative test results will be allowed to board the flight. 

“All these collaborative efforts are testaments of how achievable goals are when we all work together – we are positive our industry will heal and rise as one in no time so #EveryJuanWillFlyAgain,” added Iyog.
