Cebu Pacific rolls out 'self-bag tagging'

Aviation Updates Philippines – In an effort to promote contactless flights, low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific has rolled out a self-bag tagging procedure for everyJuan’s safety. The new system aims to minimize physical interaction between passengers and staff.

In a press release, Cebu Pacific revealed it has already set-up 21 self-bag tag kiosks at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3. This would allow passengers to personally print and attach tags on their baggage before dropping them at the bag drop counters.

Aside from ensuring contactless flights, the airline says this new process would eventually result in lesser queue times at the check-in counters. Online check-in, available from seven days up to one hour before departure, is mandatory to go hand-in-hand with this enhancement.

“Safety remains our topmost priority. As we gradually see more destinations opening up for travel, we continue to improve our processes to ensure a safe and convenient travel journey for our passengers,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for Marketing & Customer Experience.

Moreover, Cebu Pacific assured these new guidelines would be implemented with convenience in mind as the process will be faster and safer.

“This multi-layer approach to safety should result in our passengers’ regaining confidence in air travel, so #EveryJuanWillFlyAgain,” added Iyog.

The airline has stepped up efforts to ensure passengers’ safety is their topmost priority, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Layers of biosecurity measures are in place to keep everything safe throughout the whole journey.
