Philippine Airlines has compiled and published a list of hotels that have been inspected and authorized by the Department of Health (DOH) to accommodate Returning Overseas Filipinos (ROFs).
The Mactan Cebu International Airport (CEB) is a major hub for the country’s flag carrier, which resumed operations of flights to and from Cebu earlier this month. In addition, selected flights that are originally meant to land in Manila have been and might be diverted to Cebu due to “limited COVID testing slots in Manila.”
Whether your final destination is Cebu or your flight had been diverted, you need to book a hotel room in Cebu prior to flight departure. Ideally, make a reservation for at least two nights because the usual processing time of COVID-19 tests is 24 to 48 hours. You will be asked to present a copy of confirmed hotel reservation upon flight check-in.
PAL encourages their passengers to book a hotel close to the airport in Lapu Lapu City, as Cebu City is still on Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). Also provided are the addresses and websites.
Here’s the list of DOH-inspected and DOT-authorized hotels in Cebu, arranged by city, as of July 3, 2020.
