MANILA, Philippines — Following the global scare caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus acute respiratory disease (2019 nCov ARD), or the 2019 nCoV, Cebu Pacific announced that all of its flights to and from mainland China are canceled starting Feb. 2. until March 29.

In an advisory, Cebu Pacific said that canceled are inbound and outbound flights from mainland China, particularly in Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Guangzhou, and Shenzen.


Flights to and from Hong Kong and Macau, meanwhile, have been reduced, the airline added.


“Passengers affected by flight cancellations have been notified through the contact details provided upon booking,” Cebu Pacific said.  “They may also check the status of their flights through the Manage Booking portal in the Cebu Pacific website.”

The airline added that the following  options are made available for passengers on canceled flights:

• Rebook the flight (new flight date within 30 days of original travel date)
• Refund the tickets in full
• Store the value of the ticket in a Travel Fund for future use

As of Saturday, the death toll due to the 2019-nCov ARD reached 259 in China. Meanwhile, 11,800 were recorded to have been infected with the disease.

Due to the outbreak of the new virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared this as a global emergency.
