Cebu Pacific Air Offers Airfare Discount to Passengers With no Check-in Bags

Cebu Pacific (CEB) encourages passengers to carry less by offering a P200 outright airfare discount when traveling with no check-in bags and reduces its free baggage allowance (FBA) for all bookings made.

CEB will lower its FBA from 20kgs to 15kgs per passenger, except for the Boracay (Caticlan) flights which will still be at 10kg.

For bookings made before September 2, CEB will honor the 20kgs FBA. The maximum weight allowed for hand-carried luggage remains at 7kg per passenger, except for Boracay (Caticlan) which is maintained at 5kgs per passenger.

Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and product, said, “We are always looking for ways to offer an airfare discount to our passengers and since we are able to save on fuel when carrying less weight on our flights, we want to reward people who don’t have check-in bags.”

“A lighter aircraft would burn less fuel so if passengers travel light, our fuel costs would likewise go down and we are able to pass on the savings to our passengers.”

This ‘Go Lite’ discount will apply to all CEB’s fares and will be available for both domestic and international bookings beginning September 2 onwards.

Aside from introducing the ‘Go Lite’ fares, CEB will be offering a 20% airfare discount for pre-payment of excess baggage through its website, call center and ticket offices. This will be offered in increments of 5kgs.

Now in its 13th year, CEB has the youngest aircraft fleet in the Philippines, comprised of 10 A319s, eight A320s, and two ATR72-500 aircraft.
