Cebu Pacific said it momentarily suspended online check-in for international flights to give way to tests aimed at helping prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus strain.
The travel history of passengers on international flights would be checked in airport counters before they’re permitted to check-in and given travel passes, the Philippines’ largest airline said.
Philippine Airlines previously said self and digital boarding passes would be temporarily inaccessible for both international and domestic flights, according to its website.
Online registration is readily available for domestic flights though, Cebu Pacific said in a statement posted on Twitter. The Philippines has momentarily banned inbound journey to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Cebu Pacific and PAL suspended flights to mainland China. On Wednesday, Manila declared travel constraints to South Korea, home to among the most significant outbreaks of the disease beyond China.
