In response to flyers’ queries and concerns about boarding flights at this worrying time, Cebu Pacific Air pledged to make changes to their booking procedure. This includes free amendments and rescheduling of flights headed to the Philippines until the end of the month.

They are also committed to ensuring the health and safety of their passengers. They are including extra measures in their cleaning process and utilising High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA), an efficiency standard of air filters. 

In addition to cheap flight tickets, all changes and rescheduling fees for bookings to all destinations under SIA and SilkAir between March 6 and March 20 are also excluded. Changes in departure dates are only accepted if they are made before 31 March.

For those who are looking to cancel flights, a refund will be in order. Likewise, Qatar Airways and Emirates Airlines passengers flying before June 30 are able to take one of the two options to make any changes.

They can change the departure date for free as long as the changes are made more than three days prior to the initial departure date. The difference in prices, however will be charged. On the other hand, the tickets can be exchanged for a travel voucher that can be redeemed within a year.
