AS CEBU Pacific opens more flights to leisure destinations in the Philippines, it assures passengers that flying at this time is safe.
Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and customer experience, said Thursday, Sept. 23, that the airline is observing health and safety measures that would put passengers at ease.
Flights are not full, only about 50 percent of its passenger capacity, so the seating allows social distancing to be observed.
Passengers are required to wear mask.
Pilots are 99 percent vaccinated, cabin crew is 96 percent vaccinated and garbed in personal protective equipment.
Iyog said all Cebu Pacific planes have high-efficiency particulate air (Hepa) filters.
A Hepa filter forces air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles. Air is refreshed every two minutes, she said.
The Department of Tourism now allows adults 18 to 65 years old to travel but subject to the regulations of the local government units (LGUs).
Cebu Pacific has opened more flights to leisure destinations: Boracay (four to five times daily), Bohol (nine to 10 times weekly) and Siargao (five to six times weekly).
Iyog said Cebu Pacific has been rated 7/7 or seven stars out of seven for Covid-19 compliance by airlineratings.com.(MPS)
