News from Cebu Pacific Air – you can travel with more luggage!
Today Cebu Pacific Air released their new policies on check-in baggage. The past luggage limitations had always been painful for intercontinental travellers. On the internet one could only book a maximum of 20 kg checked luggage plus 7 kg of hand carry. The only solution had been to pay excess luggage fee at check-in. On some flights (the ATR-72 flights) checked luggage limit has been 10 kg per passenger. Read also here. The new rules change this!
News from Cebu Pacific Air – more baggage!
Effective November 27, 2018, passengers booked on any Cebgo flight will be able to purchase a limited number of large (32 kilograms) and extra-large (40 kilograms) check-in baggage. The opening of higher baggage allowance for Cebgo flights will also be made available for passengers with connecting international flights on Cebu Pacific.
However, each passenger can only purchase one (1) 32 or 40 kilogram baggage.
In line with continued efforts to streamline operations and provide a more efficient check-in experience at the airport, Cebu Pacific will also be strictly monitoring the number of pieces of checked-in baggage, based on the weight allowance purchased, as follows:
- Standard (20 kg) – up to two (2) pieces of baggage
- Large (32 kg) – up to three (3) pieces of baggage
- Extra-Large (40 kg) – up to four (4) pieces of baggage.
Passengers can now pre-purchase baggage allowance depending on the weight and pieces they need. Note that the maximum weight for each piece of baggage is 32 kg.
On connecting flights on the same booking reference, baggage allowance will be charged only once.
Guests travelling with infants and small children can still check-in strollers for free. The same goes for mobility-assistive devices (such as wheelchairs).
On top of pre-paid check-in baggage, all Cebu Pacific and Cebgo passengers may bring one (1) carry-on or hand-carry baggage inside the cabin with a MAXIMUM weight of seven (7) kilograms and fits inside the overhead bins; and one (1) small bag that can fit under the seat.
Now we only have to hope that PAL and PALexpress follow. Their limit of only 10 kg for Dash8/Q400 flights presents an extreme problem for destinations like Camiguin.
