In a bid to boost confidence in air travel as well as prioritise health and safety, Cebu Pacific has introduced Covid Protect, its newest add-on to CEB Travelsure, which provides coverage for Covid-19-related hospitalisation and treatments.

This newest top-up provides passengers who test positive for Covid-19 up to AED76,459 ($20,813.2) coverage for hospitalisation and medical expenses. With the extensive benefits and coverage this add-on provides, travellers—specifically those flying from Manila to Dubai—have peace of mind when flying with CEB, while at the same time able to have the opportunity to protect their loved ones in the Philippines.

This includes non-Filipinos, provided they are legal residents of the Philippines. Coverage begins on the date of departure from origin destination and ends two hours upon arrival back at origin, with a maximum duration of 30 consecutive travel days.
