Starting April 1, Cebu Pacific, the country’s largest airline, will offer Lite Fares on all flights. These Lite Fares exclude free baggage allowance, but are reduced by as much as 33% to continue encouraging travel, tourism and trade.
Domestic flights are lowered by as much as P350, and international flights are lowered by as much as P800. Under Lite Fares, which permanently replaces the popular ‘Go Lite’ fares, CEB passengers have to avail of Prepaid Baggage Allowance, similar to prepaid cellular loads, if they want to check in bags.
Passengers on domestic flights can choose between Small for 15 kilos (P150), Standard for 20 kilos (P250), Medium for 25 kilos (P450) and Large for 30 kilos (700). Meanwhile, passengers on international flights can choose between Small for 15 kilos (P350), Standard for 20 kilos (P500), Medium for 25 kilos (P750) and Large for 30 kilos (1,000).
Those with excess kilos upon checking-in at the airport will pay P150 per kilo for domestic flights and from P250-P600 per kilo for international flights, depending on the distance of the destination.
Checked-in bags without Prepaid Baggage Allowance will be charged P400 for the first 15 kilos and every excess kilo will be charged according to standard excess baggage rates. Hand-carried bags are still allowed, but limited to 7 kilos.
