Cebu Pacific offers web check-in to avoid long lines in airports-A A +A
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
MANILA -- Passengers of budget carrier Cebu Pacific can now select their seats at least two days before the scheduled departure in anticipation of high passenger traffic at the airports during peak season.
Under this service, the Gokongwei-led carrier will allow guests to check-in online and print boarding passes before the flight. This can be done through the “Manage Booking” section in the Cebu Pacific website, www.cebupacificair.com.
Passengers on international flights with no check-in luggage, meanwhile, need to drop by the web check-in counter for verification of travel documents at least 45 minutes before departure time.
On the other hand, those on domestic flights with no check-in luggage may go straight to the boarding gate. These guests should be at the gate at least 30 minutes before departure time.
Passengers with check-in luggage have to drop their bags off at the web check-in counter at least 45 minutes before the flight.
“Guests who check in online can cut down time spent in queues, from the usual 5-7 minutes in a regular check-in counter to only 1-3 minutes, depending on whether they have check-in luggage,” Cebu Pacific for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said.
The airline has already added flights and seat capacity in the last quarter of 2011 to cope with demand especially during the Christmas rush. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
