Six destinations in the Philippines now eased and simplified their travel requirements, Cebu Pacific stated.
"We are encouraged by the efforts of these LGUs (local government units) to open up their borders and simplify travel requirements," Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific vice president for Marketing and Customer Experience, said.
The airlines announced that destinations such as Cebu, Pagadian, Negros Occidental, Guimaras, Tacloban, and Butuan no longer mandate travelers to present a negative RT-PCR or antigen test.
However, Cebu requires a medical certificate from travelers stating that they do not exhibit symptoms of Covid-19 issued within 24 hours before they arrive in Cebu.
Meanwhile, travelers bound for Pagadian City must present a valid government-issued ID, wherein the address is in Pagadian City, but transiting passengers don't need to submit any requirement.
As for the other four destinations, Negros Occidental (except Bacolod City), Guimaras, Tacloban, and Butuan accept vaccination cards of fully vaccinated individuals as travel requirements for entry.
A passenger is fully vaccinated if at least 14 days have passed after receiving the second dose in a two-dose series or at least 14 days after receiving a single-dose vaccine.
Those who wish to travel must always check with the LGU of their destination for the latest updates.
In the airlineratings.com ratings, Cebu Pacific has been rated 7/7 stars for its Covid-19 compliance as it continues to implement a multilayered approach to safety under global aviation standards.
"We share the goals of the national government that we do not contribute to the spread of the virus by implementing a safe and risk-based approach to travel," Iyog said.
