Ive noticed sa Air Asia may nakalagay na senior citizens are not allowed to travel while ang Cebu Pacific wala naman ganon nakalagay.
If in case a senior citizen is able to get all the requires documents from the LGU, will he be allowed to board the flight by the airline?
Hi Ga, ang alam ko po, hindi pa pede talaga ang senior citizen lumabas, regardless of airline. Sa PAL din, bawal ang 60 and up.

Cebu Pacific: 19 local destinations open for travelers
BUDGET carrier Cebu Pacific announced on Thursday that 19 domestic destinations in its network are now open for leisure travelers and no longer require a swab test for fully vaccinated passengers.
“Destinations include Bohol, Boracay, Butuan, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu (Cebu City and Mandaue City), Clark, Maguindanao Province, Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Legazpi, Manila, Naga, Ozamiz, San Jose, Tacloban, and Tuguegarao,” Cebu Pacific said in an e-mailed statement.
“Other requirements may include vaccination certificate, vaccination card, government-issued ID, travel permits from S-Pass, confirmed accommodations, and registration to specific contact tracing applications,” it added.
Passengers going to Butuan and Cagayan de Oro are required to upload their vaccination status via S-Pass, a travel management system developed by the Department of Science and Technology.
Fully vaccinated individuals flying to the Legazpi airport are required to report to their local government units for symptoms screening and profiling. They should download the Traze app.
Meanwhile, in Clark, travelers will need to present a valid ID and any travel document required by the local government.
“Cebu Province, Lapu-Lapu City, and Davao do not require arriving fully vaccinated guests to present any travel documents for entry,” the budget carrier noted.
Xander Lao, chief commercial officer at Cebu Pacific, said this development will jump-start the return of tourists and help the local tourism industry recover.
“We are also ready to support with a ramp-up in flight frequencies as needed,” he added. — Arjay L. Balinbin

Here’s the updated list of requirements for domestic travel
There’s only a week and a half left in October, which means it’s almost undas. If this were any other year, most people would be booking trips home or planning out a mini-holiday. Sadly, undas is kind of canceled this year. Cemeteries around the country are closed for the main days of observance to prevent a superspreader event.
Although traveling isn’t as safe as it once was, the holidays still mean that people will be making their way home or just outside the city. Here’s a list of updated requirements, whether you’ll be traveling by plane or bus.
Air travel requirements
If you’re a locally stranded individual (LSI) or someone who needs to travel domestically for other valid reasons, airports have a stringent set of requirements you’ll need to comply with before flying.
It varies from airport to airport , but some common documents you’ll need to prepare include:
- Government-issued ID
- Medical certificate issued by the local government
- A negative result on a real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test
For the RT-PCR test, the time frame between the test and flying out depends on the destination, but most cities, like Cebu and Davao, require the test to be conducted within three days of departure.
Other important documents that may be required when you fly are company IDs, any official documents that serve as proof of residence and official, written documents that serve as your reason to travel.
Local carriers like Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific also have dedicated pages on their website to address documentation requirements for flying during the pandemic.
Screengrab courtesy of Cebu Pacific’s website Each website has a database of the complete list of required documents and other information you’ll need to fly.
Bus travel requirements
As of Sept. 30, some provincial bus routes in Luzon have been reopened by the government. People from select places in Pampanga, Laguna, Batangas and Cavite can opt to take the bus if they ever need to go to Manila, and vice versa. As per The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board’s (LTFRB) pronouncements , the list of requirements for traveling via bus are the following:
- PNP-issued Travel Authority/Pass at the point of origin issued within 48 hours prior to departure
- Valid identification card (must include the passenger’s address, place of origin, age, workplace or school
- Written consent of passenger approving that he/she will submit to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) testing or quarantine at the terminal or place of origin
- Other documents required by the concerned LGUs or the IATF
If you’re traveling for valid reasons, make sure you strictly follow the COVID-19 protocol set by the place you’re departing from and arriving at.
The government has mandated that all travelers must wear masks and face shields. Aside from that, don’t forget to bring a travel-sized bottle of alcohol or hand sanitizer. Social distancing is a little trickier on airplanes, but as much as possible, try to keep a safe distance from other travelers.
After arriving at your destination, make sure to comply with all of the regulations they’ve set for newly arrived travelers.
Traveling isn’t as easy as it once was (if it was ever easy at all), but if you stay vigilant (or just stay home), we can all stay safe.

Guidelines for guests needing special assistance
Requirements and reminders for guests who require special assistance (i.e., wheelchair, PWD/PRM, unaccompanied minors, etc.)
CEB embraces inclusivity and diversity of guests, regardless of gender, age, race, or status. While CEB generally accepts everyone onboard, safety remains to be CEB’s top priority. Any guest who poses a risk to the safety of other guests or CEB crew members will be denied boarding.
Guests who have special needs or attention, including those with disabilities, will be given the level of respect, and care they require. Guests must inform CEB at least two (2) hours beforehand and prepare necessary documents and identification, so that we can make the necessary arrangements. CEB will endeavor to provide special lanes and priority to them, where applicable.
It is required for guests who have recovered from recent illnesses or who have undergone recent surgical operations to present a medical certificate that contains the signing physician’s Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license number (or any valid medical license) and signature, written or typed on the signing physician’s prescription pad or official hospital or clinic document. The medical certificate should give clearance for the guest to travel by air. The same document is required for new mothers and expectant mothers with age of gestation at thirty-four (34) weeks and beyond. A medical certificate is only valid for ten (10) days.

Cebu Pacific: 19 domestic destinations no longer require RT-PCR test for fully vaxxed passengers
Budget carrier Cebu Pacific on Thursday announced there are 19 domestic destinations in its network that have opened for leisure travel and no longer require swab tests for fully vaccinated individuals.
The destinations include Bohol, Boracay, Butuan, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu (Cebu City and Mandaue City), Clark, Maguindanao Province, Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Legazpi, Manila, Naga, Ozamiz, San Jose, Tacloban, and Tuguegarao.
Cebu Pacific said other requirements may include vaccination certificate, vaccination card, government-issued ID, travel permits from S-Pass, confirmed accommodations, and registration to specific contact tracing applications.
Butuan and Cagayan de Oro require fully vaccinated travelers to simply upload their vaccination status via S-Pass, it said.
Fully vaccinated passengers arriving at Legazpi airport must report to their LGUs for symptoms screening and profiling, the airline said.
It added that the Traze app must also be downloaded.
Clark, meanwhile, requires travelers to present a valid ID and any travel document required by the local government unit (LGU).
Cebu Province, Lapu-Lapu City, and Davao do not require arriving fully vaccinated guests to present any travel documents for entry.
A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, or after receiving a single-dose vaccine.
“This is a welcome development, and we appreciate the various LGUs’ efforts to further ease travel for everyJuan, especially for fully vaccinated individuals. This will jumpstart the return of tourists and pave the way for the recovery of the local tourism industry, which we are also ready to support with a ramp-up in flight frequencies as needed,” said Xander Lao, chief commercial officer at Cebu Pacific.
As the situation remains fluid, travel guidelines may change, the airline said.
Travelers must always check with the LGU of their destination for updates on travel requirements, it added.
Cebu Pacific said the travel guidelines and requirements for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals, as well as for children, may be accessed via bit.ly/CEBTravelRequirements.
The airline said it operates with 100% fully vaccinated active flying crew.
“Our pilots and cabin crew undergo regular antigen testing (Test Before Duty) before they are assigned to operate flights,” it said.

Everything You Need to Know about Flying Cebu Pacific
January 26, 2020
During my three-and-a-half-week expedition through the Philippines, I managed to visit four separate islands throughout the country with the help of a very prominent airline, Cebu Pacific Air .
Cebu Pacific is the most flown airline in the country, carrying more passengers throughout the Philippines and nearby countries than its competitor, Philippine Airlines.
If you plan on traveling through this country, chances are you will board one of Cebu Pacific’s planes at least once during your journey.
Having been aboard four separate Cebu Pacific flights (and having even missed one), I’ve dedicated this post to discussing everything you might need to know when booking, boarding, and traveling on Cebu Pacific Air.
Where does cebu pacific fly to.
Cebu Pacific is a large airline in Southeast Asia, with higher flight frequency within the Philippines and surrounding countries than any other airline.
Currently, Cebu Pacific offers flights to 37 Philippines destinations and 26 international destinations from all over Asia, Australia, the United States (via Guam), and even the Middle East (like Dubai).
Is flying with Cebu Pacific safe?
First of all, is flying with Cebu Pacific safe?
Personally, while aboard each Cebu Pacific flight, I never once questioned my safety on these flights. Both takeoff and landing were smooth and precise, even when weather conditions were not ideal.
According to the Airline Ratings website, Cebu Pacific currently holds the highest rating for safety, based on the airline’s IOSA (International Air Transport Association Operation Safety Audit).
Cebu Pacific is rated at 7 stars (the highest ranking) based on safety audits conducted throughout the last couple of years.
Is it required to have a return flight booked?
While this is not required when traveling within the Philippines, it is required if you’re traveling from an outside country.
According to the Cebu Pacific website: Guests must have a return or onward ticket and be able to satisfactorily prove, upon request, sufficient means of financial support during their stay in the destination country.
Keep in mind, this isn’t just a requirement of Cebu Pacific specifically, but of other airlines flying into the country as well.
On our flight to Cebu from Los Angeles, the check-in counter asked us to show proof of a return flight out of Cebu as well as proof of booked accommodations.
The return ticket doesn’t necessarily have to be out of the country, as we showed documentation of our flight from Cebu to Palawan, which was sufficient for our airline.
Guests must have a return or onward ticket and be able to satisfactorily prove, upon request, sufficient means of financial support during their stay in the destination country.
Can you book your flight without a passport number?
Yes, booking your flight with Cebu Pacific is possible without providing a passport number. Keep in mind though, you will need it for check-in purposes and certainly will need your passport on the day of takeoff.
Another thing to remember is that there needs to be at least six months of validity on your passport to travel.
This is something I learned the hard way, as it resulted in my denied entry onto my flight from Manila to Hanoi. Because I did not have at least six months left on my passport, I was required to stay in Manila to get issued an emergency passport from the U.S. embassy.
It’s quite the story! I’ve written in more detail here in this post .
This rule is something airlines will rarely ever disclose to you when booking flights, but I did find this little snippet in Cebu Pacific’s fine print:
Guests traveling outside the Philippines must possess a passport, with at least six (6) months validity from the date of departure, and valid visas, if applicable.

Is it comfortable?
For being a small, budget airline, Cebu Pacific was quite comfortable. Don’t expect any luxury or extensive legroom.
Still, for the price, the seats were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the aisles were wide enough to walk comfortably through.
If you want more legroom, try snapping a seat next to an emergency exit. This brings me to my next point…

Can you pick your seats?
The short answer is yes; you can pick your seats if you choose to. Upon booking, Cebu Pacific will automatically assign you a seat. You can change and select your seat for an additional fee if you wish.
Does Cebu Pacific have Wi-Fi?
This will depend entirely on the flight you take with Cebu Pacific. Most of this airline’s domestic and short-haul flights do not offer Wi-Fi inflight. But, on some of their international flights, Wi-Fi can be purchased.
The service is offered through OnAir and costs 5 USD for 25 MB or 10 USD for 50 MB.
How many bags are allowed on Cebu Pacific? Is there a fee?
When traveling through the Philippines, My partner and I had four bags in total. Three of our bags were backpacks, and one was a handbag.
Two of the three packs were our backpacking, heavy-duty backpacks that do not fit as a carry-on. This made us nervous because we had no idea what the baggage policies were for Cebu Pacific.
Thankfully, we had no issues. Every passenger is allotted one hand-carry baggage with a maximum weight of 7 kilograms (about 15.4 pounds) and one small personal item (such as a purse or handbag). The handbag and the smaller backpack met these requirements.
Cebu Pacific does allow check-in baggage for a small fee. Prices range based on the size and weight of the check-in bag. Plan on spending roughly anywhere from 600-3800 Philippine pesos for checked baggage. This all depends on the bag’s size, weight, and whether the flight is domestic or international.
The weight is strict, as all bags (including carry-ons) will be placed on a scale to obtain an exact weight.
When can I check-in for my flight?
When checking into your flight with Cebu Pacific, the check-in counter opens four hours before international flights and two hours before domestic flights.
If you’re doing online check-in, you can check-in online from 72 hours up to 4 hours from departure.
It’s also important to know when the check-in counter closes so you don’t miss your flight!
The check-in counter closes 45 minutes before departure for international or domestic flights. You must also be at your gate no later than 30 minutes before your departure time.

What do I do if my flight gets canceled?
Unfortunately, canceled flights do happen, ESPECIALLY in the Philippines. This isn’t only related to Cebu Pacific Air, but other Philippine airlines as well.
During our travels, I had two flights canceled (and one denied entrance). This was a total of three missed flights while traveling throughout the Philippines.
While canceled flights put a damper on your travel plans, remaining flexible and open-minded is best. There are a couple of actions you can take when dealing with a canceled flight with Cebu Pacific:
- You can get a full refund of the canceled flight.
- Convert your airline ticket into a “travel fund” for future use.
- Rebook your flight within 30 days from your original departure date. (This is what Dustin and I did. We usually just rescheduled our flights for a day or two from the original date)
Despite the few bumps we had while traveling with Cebu Pacific, I found it to be a very budget-friendly, easy way to travel throughout the Philippine islands. I will not hesitate to book with Cebu Pacific if I return to the Philippines soon.

How cool that you got to see so much of the Philippines. Although I’ve been this close to traveling there for work over the years, it never quite fell into place. But man, oh man, my Filipino co-workers have the most GORGEOUS photos of the islands and beaches of their homeland!
The Philippines is definitely up there on my “favorite countries” list! I truly hope you’re able to go sometime and experience it!
Great story about Cebu Pacific, cant say I ever heard of them but I will keep them in mind. I would love to see the Philippines. Have to say got pulled into your post about having to stay in Manila to get issued an emergency passport from the U.S. embassy. Pretty crazy but I guess it happens.
Yes! That incident was a nightmare! I had no idea about the “six-month validity” rule until we tried to leave the Philippines. I had to learn the hard way I guess.
I havent been fortunate enough to travel to the Philippines, therefore havent flown with Cebu. It is good to know that your passport has to be valid for 6 months after entering the Philippines. This is something that a lot of countries require and travellers dont realize.
Agreed! I honestly had no idea until I tried to leave the Philippines, as my passport was valid when we left LA but surpassed the six-month mark during the three weeks we were there. Thankfully we were in the only city in the entire country that had a U.S. Embassy and I was able to receive a limited-validity passport.
Going to the Philippines is one of my dreams (especially snorkelling there) I knew that some countries require that the traveller’s passport is valid 6 months after the date of their return. I found out the hard way! I missed a trip because of that, so now I also double-check the validity of my passport when I am travelling outside the EU.
When I hear “Don’t expect any […] extensive legroom.”, my alarm goes off as I am fairly tall and I have been on flights with almost no legroom before . Those were no fun…and painful. Luckily, I believe flight times within the Philippines are not too bad. What was your longest flight in the Philippines?

Pack essential items: Include essential items such as travel documents, medication, electronic devices, chargers, travel adapters, and valuables in your hand carry. This ensures you have easy access to these items during your journey and reduces the risk of loss or damage.
Use a clear bag for liquids: Pack any liquids, aerosols, or gels in containers of no more than 100 ml (3.4 Oz) each, and place them in a transparent, resealable plastic bag with a maximum capacity of 1 liter (1 quart). This is required for security checks at the airport.

Keep your passport and boarding pass handy: Have your travel documents easily accessible for security checks, boarding, and immigration processes.
Avoid prohibited items: Do not pack items that are prohibited in cabin luggage, such as sharp objects, firearms, flammable materials, or large tools. Check the airline’s list of prohibited items before packing.
Don’t overpack: Avoid overstuffing your hand carry, as it may exceed the allowed dimensions or weight, resulting in additional fees or having to check it in as hold luggage.
Don’t bring large electronic devices in restricted flights: Some flights, particularly those bound for the United States, may have restrictions on carrying large electronic devices like laptops in the cabin. Check the airline’s guidelines and be prepared to check these items in if required.
Avoid packing food with strong odors: Be considerate of fellow passengers and do not bring food with strong smells that could cause discomfort during the flight.
