Cebu Pacific has received a 7-star safety rating — the highest score possible — from AirlineRatings, a leading airline safety and product review website that has been assessing airlines around the world for their Covid-19 safety protocols.

Passenger safety remains one of the foremost priorities of Cebu Pacific in 2021, as the airline continues to implement strict safety measures designed to reassure travelers and protect the public from unnecessary dangers related to the pandemic.

Here’s seven reasons why CEB has earned its stars, and why everyJuan can rest assured that their safety is a top concern for the  airline:


Cebu Pacific’s Covid-19 website contains up-to-date information and instructions


On its website, Cebu Pacific maintains  Travel with Peace of Mind page where you can find all the latest travel updates. Passengers can also count on flight status updates through various channels, along with news and information related to Covid-19 that may affect travel plans.


Social distancing begins at the airport


Safety protocols are in place the moment you step into the airport. When passengers check in, there will be floor markers to remind everyone to keep a safe distance while queuing. Ground personnel also keep an eye on things and enforce rules when necessary.

Of course, social distancing continues on board the flight. Alternative-seating arrangements will make sure that there are empty seats next to every passenger when the load allows it, or one seat between each group of passengers who are traveling together. Furthermore, no changing of seats is allowed during the flight, a rule that cabin crew members will strictly implement. Orderly deplaning procedures must also be observed by everyone on board.


Full PPEs for the flight crew


Full sets of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for the flight crew is just one of the multiple layers of biosafety measures that have been implemented to ensure onboard safety.


Face Masks for Everybody


All passengers will be required to wear face masks and face shields, too. Flight personnel will strictly implement the face mask rules on every flight for the safety of everyone on board.


Sanitizer Kit is Available as an Add-On


You should already be traveling with your own kit that includes an effective hand sanitizer. These are also available as an add-on during booking, because you can never have too many! There’s also another very handy add-on available for passengers: Covid Protect is an additional TravelSure insurance add-on that provides up to P1 million for medical expenses for passengers who test positive for the virus.


The Inflight Meal Service has been Modified


Passengers can get more information on pre-ordered meals and snacks through the Manage Booking Portal on the website, or talk to Charlie the Chatbot on Facebook Messenger.


Global Safety Standards are in Place When Cleaning the Aircraft


All Cebu Pacific aircraft undergo extensive disinfection performed by personnel certified by the Bureau of Quarantine. They use Airbus-approved disinfectant, proven to be effective against viruses, including the coronavirus. Lavatories are also cleaned by the crew members every 30 minutes while in flight.

After all this, are you still asking yourself it it’s safe to fly? Watch this video to see Cebu Pacific’s safety protocols in action:
