While travel for leisure remains prohibited, the government has already allowed essential and business travel. Local airlines have resumed operating commercial flights and implemented stricter safety measures as the travel industry shifts to the new normal.

One of the most frequently asked questions about traveling these days: What are the requirements do I need to present when traveling?

To address this, Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, and Philippines AirAsia have released a list of required documents so passengers would be prepared and permitted to travel and make the journey hassle-free. Save for the wording, the lists are basically the same. See below:

❗️IMPORTANT❗️ All three airlines strongly advise that you contact the local government units of your origin and destination to check if there are additional requirements or changes. Some requirements vary from place to place and may also change over time.

Ive noticed sa Air Asia may nakalagay na senior citizens are not allowed to travel while ang Cebu Pacific wala naman ganon nakalagay.

If in case a senior citizen is able to get all the requires documents from the LGU, will he be allowed to board the flight by the airline?


Hi. Ask ko lang. Ngayon po kaya pwede na po ba magbyahe ang senior citizen sa eroplano ng cebu pacific po. Salamat po.

Rowena Maquilan

Ask q lng po kung pedi poh ba mgbiahe Ang senior citizen na wlang vaccine


Kung itatanong kasi sa Cebu Pacific, ang sabi nila as long as meron si Senior Citizen lahat ng mga required documents from their respective LGU, then allowed siya to fly. Confusing nga ang guidelines for senior citizen eh.
