Cebu Pacific All-Cargo Flights Continue to Carry Medical Essentials to Frontliners

Cebu Pacific (CEB), utilizing its fleet of passenger to cargo converted ATR 72-500 turboprop aircraft, continues to transport medical equipment and essential goods. While passenger services remain suspended due to the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) covering Luzon and some places in the Philippines, CEB Cargo has delivered over 20 tons of humanitarian cargo to key destinations.

The cargo includes medicines, a number of COVID-19 test kits, and much-needed medical and personal protective equipment (PPE) for health workers and medical frontliners in which all are airlifted at no cost to the shipper or receiving organization.

The airline says that the free airlift of medical essentials are part of its social responsibility program, ensuring the transportation of such supplies as the country's medical frontliners and government officials work to stop the spread of the CoviD-19.

According to CEB, the airline "has already carried over 20 tons of humanitarian cargo between key domestic destinations including Cebu, Bacolod, Puerto Princesa, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, and General Santos. Donations were sent through various government and non-government organizations such as the Office of Vice President Leni Robredo/Angat Buhay Foundation; the Department of Health, the Bureau of Customs/Task Force Koronadal; the Armed Forces of the Philippines; the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation; The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service (TOWNS) Foundation; and the local government of Butuan."
