Starting February 1, the country’s leading low cost carrier, Cebu Pacific (CEB) will set a size limit for check-in baggage at 39 inches.

“Luggage with this dimension will be easier to fit in the conveyor belt, and will in turn, result in smoother operations, making the journey faster and more convenient for all passengers,” the airline said in a statement.

Guests checking in baggage that exceed the 39” limit on any one side will be classified as an oversized bag, and will be charged P800 for domestic flights, and P1,300 for international flights.

This additional fee is brought about by the manual process required to transport the bag to the baggage loading area. Some examples of oversized baggage are music equipment, motorcycles, and televisions.

CEB reminds passengers to properly pack their bags according to their availed prepaid baggage allowance to avoid any other additional fees at the airport.

Last month CEB introduced COVID Protect, its newest add-on to CEB Travelsure, to give travelers peace of mind when flying during this time.

This upgrade, which will cover Covid-related hospitalization and treatments, is timely as the carrier aims to provide more passenger options as it prioritizes passengers’ health and safety.

With COVID Protect, guests traveling who test positive for Covid-19 will get up to P1 million coverage for hospitalization and medical expenses. This upgrade to the airline’s comprehensive travel insurance plan may be availed by all passengers flying to and from all of CEB’s domestic and international destinations for as low as P270.
