Cebu Pacific adds domestic flights to Boracay, Bohol

MANILA, Philippines — Cebu Pacific, the country’s largest budget airline, increased domestic flights to Boracay and Bohol with an eye toward recovery.

“We remain cautiously optimistic as we prepare for the bounce back and will do everything that is within our control to support and aid that,” said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and customer experience.

Starting June 21, Cebu Pacific mounted five daily flights to Boracay and daily flights to Bohol.

“With the arrival of more vaccines and the pace at which vaccines are being rolled out, we are hopeful that in due time our networks will recover to pre-pandemic levels,” Iyog said.

Cebu Pacific is also set to implement a new policy for passengers requiring changes to their flights.

On July 1 this year, Cebu Pacific said the travel fund option for voluntary flight changes will only be available for passengers who pre-purchased the CEB Flexi add-on during initial booking.

The add on allows passengers to cancel their flights for free, up to two hours before departure, and store the value of the booking in a travel fund for as low as P499.

The amount in this virtual wallet is valid for two years and may be used to book new flights or purchase other add-ons such as seat selection, additional baggage allowance, or travel insurance.

Passengers who wish to change their bookings voluntarily without purchasing CEB Flexi can make use of the unlimited rebooking option.

Cebu Pacific earlier removed change fees “to provide guests with the much-needed flexibility during this time.”
