Cebu Pacific continues to operate daily flights between Cebu and Tacloban and Manila and Tacloban. The airline reserves seats for humanitarian purposes in its Tacloban flights. The airline started humanitarian flights to and from Tacloban as soon as the airport opened last November 11. CEB accepts passengers from other airlines, volunteers, medical and support teams to be on board its Tacloban flights. With no electricity and communications in Tacloban, the Cebu Pacific airport team elects manual check-in for passengers, and manual checks for baggage.
CEB has already transported 3,000 kilos of relief goods from the GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) to Iloilo, 3,000 kilos more to Cebu and 9,000 kilos of relief goods to Tacloban earlier this week. The airline will be transporting an additional 30,000 kilos of relief goods to Tacloban.
Passengers on CEB’s Manila-Tacloban flights may also bring relief goods, and the airline will transport as much as it can accommodate to Tacloban. The airline is working closely with the government on the resumption of normal operations to Tacloban in the soonest possible time.
In the meantime, CEB passengers with flights to and from Tacloban until December 31, 2013, have the option to rebook or reroute their flights to the nearest alternate airport without penalties, or get full refund or travel fund.
