Hi all, I'm passing along a travel advisory sent by Cebu Pacific's PR. If you've booked a flight to and from any Cebu Pacific or CebGo destination in Mindanao from May 25-31, 2017 and have concerns traveling on these dates, please read on. For additional questions, please get in touch with Cebu Pacific directly. Contact details are listed below.
Operations of Cebu Pacific in Mindanao remain normal, with no restrictions or limitations imposed on air travel by the authorities.
However, in light of recent situation in Marawi City and the declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao, Cebu Pacific and Cebgo strongly advise all its passengers to allot sufficient travel time to get to the airports due to the heightened security measures being implemented. Heavy traffic is also anticipated around the areas as numerous check points are expected to be put up.
Guests flying to and from any Cebu Pacific or Cebgo destination in Mindanao from May 25 to 31, 2017 who are concerned about travelling at this time may opt to rebook their tickets for free within 30 days; or place the cost of the ticket in a travel fund for future use.
For flight rebooking or other concerns, guests are advised to contact the Cebu Pacific hotline at +632 7020-888. They may also message the official Cebu Pacific Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/cebupacificair) or Twitter (@CebuPacificAir) accounts.
CEB also reminds its passengers of the following:
· Remember to bring a valid ID* to be presented during check-in and boarding.
· Liquids, aerosols, and gels inside a hand-carry bag should be in a container (100 ml or less) and they should be placed in a clear, resealable plastic bag.
· Be conscious in bringing objects with sharp edges (i.e. nail files, nippers, nail cutters, scissors, etc.) as these may not be allowed in your hand-carry baggage
· If you are bringing gadgets like your laptop, be prepared to take it out for inspection
