BayaniJUAN: Cebu Pacific provides airlift support for COVID-19 response efforts

Manila, Philippines — Over the past several years, the need for humanitarian aid has dramatically increased on the back of major natural disasters, conflict or biohazards such as the spread of the Novel Coronavirus. Aviation plays a critical role in the fast and reliable movement of humanitarian assistance such as food and medical supplies, especially when time is of the essence.

Cebu Pacific helps out in COVID-19 response efforts by offering all-cargo flights to transport medical equipment and goods to provinces.

Amidst travel restrictions that came with the imposition of Community Quarantine across Luzon and many other provinces across the Philippines, Cebu Pacific (CEB) has continued to operate all-cargo flights to ensure that food, medicines and vital supplies are transported from one island to another across the archipelago. Throughout the quarantine period, Cebu Pacific has been in constant coordination with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) and other government agencies for cargo transport—especially those that are intended for humanitarian aid.

Cebu Pacific has reserved its fleet of Airbus jets and ATR turbo-prop aircraft for free use of organizations sending medical support and PPEs across the country.

So far, CEB has operated over 40 cargo flights between Manila, Cebu, General Santos, Cagayan de Oro, Tacloban, Iloilo, and Davao using its fleet of Airbus jets and ATR turboprop aircraft. It is the only carrier in the Philippines with a dedicated ATR Freighter, capable of carrying as much as seven tons of cargo in one uplift.

Almost four tons of humanitarian aid from Vice President Leni Robredo’s Angat Buhay program has been carried by Cebu Pacific.
