THE country’s leading budget carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) yesterday announced that effective today all 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.
CEB spokesperson Ma. Rosario Lagamon said the opening of higher baggage allowance for Cebgo flights will also be made available for passengers with connecting international flights on Cebu Pacific.
However, she said, each passenger can only purchase one 32 or 40 kilograms baggage.
Lagamon added that in line with continued efforts to streamline operations and provide a more efficient check-in experience at the airport, CEB 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 pieces of baggage; large (32 kg) up to three pieces of baggage and extra-large (40 kg) up to four 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,” she said.
Meantime, 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 carry-on or hand-carry baggage inside the cabin with a maximum weight of seven kilograms that fits inside the overhead bins and one small bag that can fit under the seat,” Lagamon said.
