MANILA - Cebu Pacific Air on Saturday advised both local and international passengers coming to and from the capital to expect an increase in processing time and possible delays due to the Philippines' hosting of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.
The airline urged passengers traveling overseas from Manila from Saturday until Nov. 15 to be at the airport early. This as summit venues around Pasay City are close to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and authorities earlier advised road lock downs as part of security arrangements.
"Passengers are encouraged to use Cebu Pacific's online check-in facilities (mobile or web) to minimize delays," Cebu Pacific said in an advisory.
Passengers who would like to postpone or cancel their flights during the ASEAN hosting dates may opt to rebook or refund their fare, the airline said.
“Those wishing to fly outside the said dates may rebook their flights earlier than Nov. 12, 2017, or seven days after Nov. 15, 2017, free-of-charge, or opt for a full refund or travel fund,” Cebu Pacific said.
"We sincerely hope for your understanding and will provide updates as soon as available," Cebu Pacific said.
