Passengers Required to Wear Face Shields During Entire Flight

All Cebu Pacific passengers are required to wear face shields during the entire flight, in line with directives from the Philippine government.

We encourage guests to check the Cebu Pacific Facebook page and/or the all-in-one Cebu Pacific hub page for the most updated information on the airline’s flights. We hope for your understanding, as this is a developing situation, and we need to have an agile approach to our network schedule. It may be necessary for us to add or cancel flights at the last minute, given the fluidity of directives from the IATF, concerned LGUs, and other government agencies.
