Being Early
1.) Three hours before your flight, you should be at the airport especially for medium to long-haul flights. Before you leave your house, please be reminded to bring your important documents such as the ticket and the passports.

2.) Several airline offers web check-in for their route network, such as Cebu Pacific Air and AirAsia. It saves time and avoids you to do a manual check-in in every airline counter. If you checked-in online, you can save time by using Cebu Pacific's Self Service Check-in Kiosk. It will be available from 4 hours to 1 hour before your departure time.
