The Philippines’ largest budget carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) encourages passengers traveling on Airbus flights during the Christmas and New Year holidays to check in online or through self-service kiosks at the airport.
These would cut down on guests’ waiting time. Domestic passengers with no check-in bags may already proceed to the boarding gate at least 30 minutes before the flight, while those with check-in bags should proceed to the bag drop counter at least 45 minutes before the flight.
International passengers with or without check-in bags should proceed to the bag drop counter for verification of travel documents at least 45 minutes before the flight.
“12% of CEB passengers availed of web and self check-in services in the 1st week of December. We want to make everyone aware that this very convenient option is available for guests on Airbus flights, free of charge, so they can breeze through the check-in process especially during peak travel period,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
Web check-in may be done through the Manage Bookings section in www.cebupacificair.com from 48 to four hours before the flight.
Self check-in kiosks are available at all Philippine airports with Airbus flights, except Tawi-Tawi and Laoag. Starting December 17, 2012, self check-in may be done from four hours to one hour before the flight.
Seat assignments are automatically assigned to web check-in guests for free.
Those who wish to select seats may do so for a minimal fee of P100-P200. Meanwhile, those checking in through the self check-in kiosks at the airport may select their seats for free.
These services are not available for CEB passengers on ATR turbo-prop flights, unaccompanied minors, expectant mothers, guests with infants or requiring special assistance, and groups of 10 or more under one booking record.
CEB was the first Philippine carrier to offer self check-in last December 22, 2011, using computer terminals in Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. It also pioneered web check-in in the Philippines.
