10 flights daily or 58 round-trip flights in total are going to be interrupted this month of May in addition to the 2 canceled flights last April 28 to 30. The affected flights include Manila to Cebu, Davao, Dumaguete, Puerto Prinsesa, Bacolod, Tuguegarao, Butuan, Iloilo, Zamboanga, Caticlan, Legazpi, Bohol, Roxas, Cagayan De Oro, General Santos, Ozamis, and Zamboanga to Cebu and Tawi-Tawi. The passengers of Cebu Pacific experienced delays and even on-the-spot cancellation due to the uncommon level of disruption to the firm’s operation. Aside from efficiency and adjustments, this arrangement is also being done to give ample time for operational recovery and reduced rolling delays considering the current situation in its Manila branch.
If you’re wondering if Cebu is going to face sanctions because of interrupted flights without giving warnings to its passengers, it’s to early to tell. The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) has not yet received the detailed report of the firm’s current situation which is why they can’t get a full grasp of what’s happening yet. The action to resolve this issue needs further details from the firm so that CAB can take a look deeper and validate the firm’s undertaking. In spite of this, the firm is still receiving support from the authority. If it’s the company’s way to resolve any dilemma in its operation, let the firm to do it not just for the safety of its business but for the wellness of its passengers as well.
In order to lessen the damage of the canceled and delayed flights, Cebu Pacific is giving a round-trip travel voucher for those who are affected of the inconvenience. This voucher may be used to book for an alternative flight. Philippine Airlines, on the other hand, said that the same initiative will be undertaken. PAL is giving reassurance to everyone that the operation will be as usual–a full regular schedule of flights for international and domestic routes. PAL’s branches in Manila, Davao, Clark, and Cebu will operate in its normal capacity.
