Cebu Pacific offers flexible domestic flight options until Jan. 31 

Customers of budget carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) who are travelling domestically from Jan. 5-31, and who wish to postpone their flight, have up to two hours before departure time to choose between the rebook or travel fund options. 

The rebook option is for travel within 60 days at no additional cost, and with the fare difference waived. The travel fund option allows for the amount of a passenger’s booking to be stored in a virtual CEB wallet, and is valid for two years.

Both options are available through the Manage Booking portal at bit.ly/CEBmanageflight

CEB also announced on Jan. 6 that is reviewing its network schedule and monitoring manpower levels considering quarantined employees. It is cancelling a number of domestic flights from Jan. 7 to 10, with passengers to be transferred to other available flights on the same day. 

The affected flights are listed at bit.ly/CEBAdvisory_Jan2022Flights

Meanwhile, the CEB Terminal 3 ticket office is closed until further notice.

To curb the post-holiday spike in COVID-19 cases, the Philippines’ Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) raised Metro Manila to Alert Level 3 Status from Jan. 3-15.

The growth of COVID-19 cases in the capital increased from -51% from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18, to +501% from Dec. 5 to Jan. 1, according to Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Benjamin de Castro Abalos, Jr. in a Jan. 5 town hall discussion.

Omicron, the latest COVID-19 variant of concern, could hamper the recovery of the tourism industry.

“[The Omicron] surge will be driven by the irresponsibility and selfishness of individuals who breach protocols instituted to ensure everyone’s safety,” said Asian Institute of Management economist John Paolo R. Rivera in a Jan. 4 BusinessWorld article. — P. Mirasol
