CLARK FREEPORT -- In light of the 30th Asean Summit and Related Meetings which will be held in Manila from April 26 to 29, 2017, Cebu Pacific and Cebgo reminded all passengers flying out on these dates to plan their routes going to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The carrier issued the advisory as several roads in Pasay City, especially those leading to NAIA Terminals 3 and 4, will be closed.
Aside from this, the period from April 29 to May 1, 2017 is also Labor Day weekend.
Malacañang, by virtue of Memorandum Circular 18 issued on April 21, suspended classes at all levels and work in the government and private sector on April 28, Friday, in line with the Philippines’ hosting of the Asean Summit.
Passengers traveling to and from Manila from April 28-30, 2017 who wish to change their flight schedules may rebook their flights for free within 30 days.
Guests flying out this weekend are advised to be at the airport early to process pre-departure requirements and avoid long lines at the check-in, security and immigration counters.
Cebu Pacific's domestic check-in counters are open three hours before the scheduled time of departure and four hours for international flights.
All check-in counters will close 45 minutes before the scheduled time of flights, except those exiting the Middle East (one hour) and Shanghai (50 minutes).
To cut the waiting time, Cebu Pacific and Cebgo passengers are encouraged to use the following check-in options:
• CEB Mobile Check-in. Download the official Cebu Pacific Mobile App on the App Store or Google Play and tap on the Check-In option. CEB Mobile Check-in is available from seven days to four hours before an international flight, and up to one hour before a domestic flight.
• CEB Web Check-in. Visit the Manage Booking section of the Cebu Pacific website (http://www.cebupacificair.com). For international flights, web check-in is available from seven days up to four hours before scheduled flight departure. Those taking domestic flights can do web check-in up to one hour before their scheduled departure.
• Self Check-in Kiosks. Passengers at NAIA Terminals 3 and 4 and selected domestic airports can use these kiosks to check-in their flights eight hours up to one hour before the scheduled flight departure.
Domestic web or mobile check-in guests with check-in luggage can drop these off at the bag drop counter at least 45 minutes before the flight, except those exiting the Middle East (one hour) and Shanghai (50 minutes). International web or mobile check-in guests still need to show up at check-in or bag drop counter at least one hour before the flight to present valid travel documents.
