Over the past several days, the world has seen a rapid escalation of developments surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The aviation industry – including Cebu Pacific – has been significantly impacted by COVID-19.
Due to this, the company had to cancel flights to key international markets, and more recently, majority of its domestic operations due to community quarantines and air travel restrictions.
“We have decided to suspend all our Cebu Pacific and Cebgo domestic and international passenger flights from March 19 to April 14, 2020, while the Enhanced Community Quarantine measures of the Philippine government are in effect,” the company stated. “It is a difficult, but necessary decision, as part of our efforts to ensure the safety of our passengers and operations teams, and to comply with stricter quarantine measures, and air, sea, and land restrictions – in the Philippines and other jurisdictions.”
On March 18, Cebu Pacific will operate its last flights until April 14, and these will be from Manila to Bangkok, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Ho Chi Minh, Singapore, Taipei, and Bali and vice versa. It will also work with the authorities to assist in flying stranded passengers in and out of the Philippines.
Prior to the Enhanced Community Quarantine, Cebu Pacific operated 2,800 weekly flights to over 60 destinations across Asia, Australia and the Middle East, the most of any Philippine carrier.
Below is a summary of the options for our guests on cancelled flights due to COVID-19. These options may be processed online via the “Manage Booking” portal in the Cebu Pacific website bit.ly/CEBmanageflight.
