Cebu Pacific Welcomes the Holiday Season With Presents for Everyone

The airline continues to offer free baggage allowance for those flying Dubai to Manila

As the Christmas season is fast-approaching, the Philippines’ largest carrier celebrates with everyone as it continues to give away additional baggage allowance to passengers travelling from Dubai to Manila—perfect for bringing “pasalubong” or gifts for their loved ones back home.

Until November 30, 2017, all passengers flying from Dubai to Manila who pre-purchase baggage allowance of 40 kilograms will get an additional 25 kilograms, completely free-of-charge*—that’s a total of 65 kilograms of check-in baggage, equivalent to the weight of a typical ‘balikbayan box.’ Moreover, this total 65 kilogram baggage allowance will be carried-over for guests with connecting flights to other Cebu Pacific destinations, as long as their flight itinerary was booked as a through sector.*

“It’s once again the most wonderful time of the year and as we commemorate the holidays, we are encouraging our kababayans travelling from Dubai to take advantage of the free additional 25 kilograms. This special promo is perfect for Filipinos given that gift-giving has been a long-practiced tradition, especially during this season. Now, everyone can buy as many items as they want, and actually travel home with them, saving everyone the waiting time and the hassle of contacting another service provider,” said Atty. JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific Vice President for Corporate Affairs.

The cost of shipping a ‘balikbayan box’ ranges from AED210 to AED370, while a 40-kg baggage allowance on Cebu Pacific only costs between AED 320-350.

“CEB always sees to it that we provide the lowest fares and ancillary prices possible, and we believe that our competitive pricing for this product is definitely the more practical option as it allows the items to arrive together with the passenger, giving them the option to personally give their gifts immediately,” added Mantaring.

For connecting flights within the airline’s domestic route network, the 65 kilogram baggage allowance is only for Cebu Pacific flights as bookings on Cebgo only have a maximum baggage allowance of 20 kilograms.
