Would you fly amid the COVID-19 pandemic if an airline offered you a ₱700 antigen test that gave results in 30 minutes?
This is not a hypothetical question. In fact, Cebu Pacific has earlier rolled out its Test Before Boarding (TBB) process. This allows passengers to get an antigen test at the airport before their flights. As of writing, the ₱700 antigen test is recorded as the most affordable COVID-19 test in the industry.
Where and how to get an antigen test with Cebu Pacific
For the antigen test, you may get tested at the TBB testing facility inside the Departure Hall, at the third floor of NAIA Terminal 3. It is open from 2am to 2pm daily and is available for walk-ins. Results can be expected within 30 minutes.
The TBB antigen test is valid for all passengers bound for General Santos, Butuan, Dipolog, and Pagadian. Passengers may head to the NAIA Terminal 3 three hours before their flight to get tested.
Aside from the antigen test, Cebu Pacific also offers an RT-PCR test for ₱3,300. This is especially useful for travellers bound for a destination that requires a negative RT-PCR test result.
To get tested for RT-PCR, you may choose among the three testing facility partners of Cebu Pacific: Philippine Airport Diagnostic Laboratory (PADL), Health Metrics, Inc., and Safeguard DNA Diagnostics Inc. (SDDI). To book an appointment, you may click on your preferred testing facility partner here.
Now that the travel industry is paving the way for safer flights in the new normal, will you be travelling any time soon?
