Dubai, UAE: Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ largest national flag-carrier, will gradually resume commercial passenger flights between select domestic destinations starting June 2, 2020. All International flights—including the Dubai-Manila route—remain suspended until June 30, 2020.
The airline continues to work closely with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF), as well as other national and local government authorities in the Philippines, as regards the rules and requirements to resume commercial passenger flights between areas of the country under General Community Quarantine (GCQ).
CEB is set to slowly resume services in its widest domestic network, depending on government regulations and market demand. Passengers are expected to receive updates on routes and schedules in the next days.
Leisure travel remains prohibited at this time. Along with CEB reminders, guests are also reminded to keep posted with the IATF, as well as local government units of their point of origin and intended destination for the required documents.
As flights start to resume, the airline also has ramped up its sanitation protocols at all possible points of contact, to ensure passengers and personnel are protected. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/CEBSafeTravel

They may rebook their flight for travel within three (3) months from the original flight date; place the full cost of the ticket in a Travel Fund valid for one (1) year; or avail of a full refund.
