If you have an upcoming flight but still anxious about how to go about it. Here are some things that you should expect and some tips for domestic travels.
Tourism is slowly opening up and the Department of Tourism is making sure that everyone will be following health protocols. In the “Juan Love” campaign of Cebu Pacific, DOT Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat expressed how the campaign will help the industry.
“We are delighted that Cebu Pacific came up with this heartfelt initiative. More than rekindling the desire of Filipinos to travel once again, the Juan Love campaign also puts a spotlight on the people whose jobs and livelihoods depend on the inclusive growth brought about by tourism. We are always grateful for the support, and rest assured that we will continuously collaborate with the aviation sector so we may all help our industries, and our economy, recover,” she said.
Last month, we booked a flight to Coron. It was a ‘spur of the moment’ thing because the flight deals on Cebu Pacific have been too good to pass up. Our roundtrip flights to Coron are less than Php3,000 roundtrip per person. Cebu Pacific flies to Coron daily and has amazing deals all year round. We also checked other destinations and the prices are also very affordable. This gives you more budget for the RT-PCR test requirement or to find a nice hotel.
If you are not sure what the requirements are for your chosen destination, Cebu Pacific has all the details depending on the LGU and IATF guidelines for the requirements and protocol.
Since many travelers are concerned about RT-PCR testing, Cebu Pacific has laboratory partners which are DOH accredited and can release test results within 24 hours or within the required timeline of your chosen destination. They have partnered with Health Metrics, PADLAB, and SDDI that offer RT-PCR results within 24-72 hours.

Upon arrival at the airport, you have to present your ticket or flight information at the main entrance. You can check-in online or check-in at the machines at the entrance. You can also self-tag your bags for a quicker bag-drop process. At the check-in counter where bag drops are done, you have to present requirements and government I.D. We highly suggest that you print out your requirements for a faster transaction. During our check-in, everything is orderly and social distancing is being practiced. There are also crew to make sure that everyone follows safety protocols.

On the plane, Make sure to get front seats on the plane for easier and faster seating and deplaning. All the crew is all dressed in PPE and though there is minimal contact throughout the flight, the crew made sure that passengers are attended to if needed.
For the return flight, you will need to pass your requirements again so they can log you in and out of their system.
Now, are you ready for your trip?
