In line with government directives, all Cebu Pacific passengers will be required to wear face shields during the entire flight starting August 15, 2020. This is on top of the mandatory use of face masks upon entering the airport terminal until arrival at the destination. 

Apart from this, the airline continues to implement enhanced bio-security preventive measures to keep its passengers and personnel safe. These safety measures include daily extensive cleaning and disinfection protocols for all aircraft and facilities, rapid antibody testing for all frontliners, and crew and contactless flight procedures.

As reported two days ago, all Cebu Pacific and Cebgo flights to and from Manila are cancelled until August 18, 2020 due to imposition of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) over Metro Manila and adjacent provinces, and continued community quarantine over the rest of the country.
