In response to the unfastening of strict protocols for domestic travel inside the Philippines, Cebu Pacific has organized more leisure flights for October.
The commercial flyer will expand its flights for select tourist destinations – Siargao, Boracay, and Bohol. Flights to Siargao will increase to six times per week from five times, Boracay to five daily flights from four times, and Bohol to 10 times per week from nine times.
Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience Candice Iyog said the bolstering of domestic and leisure travel in the country will help the tourism industry recover.
“We believe reopening domestic travel and the promotion of responsible travel is critical to rebuilding the trust and travel confidence in the industry,” Iyog said.
“Domestic tourism will be the one leading the recovery process for us,” she added.
Meanwhile, flights for the following international destinations will also be resumed:
- Daily flights to Dubai will restart on September 30
- Japan flights twice weekly to Nagoya starting October 2, and Osaka on October 4, and resume Fukuoka on November 5
- Flights to Kuala Lumpur will return on October 4
To keep its flyers safe, the carrier has vaccinated 99 percent of its line pilots and 96 percent of its cabin crew.
Apart from this, Cebu Pacific is also implementing strict sanitation and health protocols, which include cleaning and disinfection for all aircraft and facilities, antigen testing before duty for all frontliners and crew members, and contactless flight procedures.
