Baggage Services

Then, Cebu Pacific will deliver it to the passenger unless the applicable law requires the passenger’s presence for clearance by customs authorities. For every 24 four hours of delay in such delivery counted from 1 hour from the arrival of the flight of the passenger carrying such baggage, Cebu Pacific will tender an amount of PHP 2,000 to the passenger as compensation for the inconvenience the latter experienced.
