Meanwhile, the Philippine government has also limited the number of foreign arrivals in the Philippines to 1,500 per day only. This move, aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19, compelled Cebu Pacific to cancel its Manila-Narita-Manila and Manila-Nagoya-Manila flights for 30-days until April 18, 2021.


Affected passengers and passengers who wish to postpone their flights due to non-essential travel may select the following options through Cebu Pacific's Manage Booking portal on its website:
  • Rebook - Rebook for travel within 90 days at no additional cost, following CEB's permanent removal of change fees. Fare difference waived.  
  • Travel Fund - Store the amount in a virtual CEB wallet valid for two (2) years and use this to either book a new flight or pay for add-ons (e.g. baggage allowance, seat selection, etc.)  
  • Refund - Due to the high volume of requests, the process may take up to seven (7) months from date of request.

Cebu Pacific also advises its passengers to check their flight's status before proceeding to the airport. Travel requirements, safety protocols, and frequently asked questions (FAQs), may also be accessed via https://bit.ly/CEBFlightReminders.
