MANILA – With lockdowns in some areas and stop-and-go schemes for traffic in others as part of security for the 30th ASEAN Summit and Related Meetings from April 26-29, Cebu Pacific (CEB) and Cebgo reminded all passengers flying out on these dates to plan their routes to get to NAIA, as several roads will be closed in Pasay City – especially those leading to NAIA Terminals 3 and 4.

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.

Guests 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, the airline advised.

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. CEB Domestic Check-in counters are open three (3) hours before the scheduled time of departure and four (4) hours for International flights. All check-in counters 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, CEB and Cebgo passengers were encouraged as well to use the following check-in options:

  • CEB Mobile Check-in
  • CEB Web Check-in
  • Self Check-in Kiosks
