High-quality low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) offers travel tips and reminders for the peak season this April 1-4, 2010.
“We hope our guests can use our friendly reminders and travel tips for a fun and stress-free long weekend. It always helps to remember that there will be a lot of people traveling during this time,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT
Flight changes must be made more than 24 hours before the flight’s estimated time of departure. Guests can no longer rebook or cancel within 24 hours of the ETD and any time thereafter.
Remember that CEB allows only one hand carry bag (maximum weight is 7 kilos) and gives passengers free 15 kilos baggage allowance (except for Clark which gives 30 kilos). Weigh the luggage in advance so there will be no surprises.
If guests have a lot of excess luggage, go to www.cebupacificair.com and purchase Prepaid Excess Baggage (20% discount on excess baggage) for a faster check-in process.
Fix loose straps and broken locks, and place easily identifiable markers on the bag to avoid luggage problems.
Check in for the flight as early as possible because of expected long lines at the security scanners and check-in counters. CEB counters will close 45 minutes before the estimated time of departure.
Those with no check-in luggage for domestic flights can fall in line at the Express Counter.
Guests on international flights can arrive at the airport earlier. Aside from the usual security and check-in requirements, they will still have to pass by immigration.
Be at the boarding gate 30 minutes before the flight’s published time of departure.
Guests will pass through another security check before getting to the boarding gate, so wear shoes that can be easily removed and avoid wearing belts with metal buckles.
CEB flies to 33 domestic and 14 international destinations, using the youngest aircraft fleet in the country.
