CAB prohibits no rebook, no refund policies on Promo Fares

Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) is an agency of the government authorized to control the economic aspect of air transportation. Last night I watched Bandila on ABS-CBN and mentioned CAB wants ban on “no rebook, no refund policies” on promo fares. Cabs resolution no 28 and 29 prohibit local airlines to overbook and to pursue their refund, no rebooking policy, respectively. However, low-cost airlines like Cebu Pacific and Sea air show disagreeable and will even file a motion. Well, this is expected already because it is business, but for us passengers this is good news.

So unlike before promo fares bought is forfeited if not use on the travel date. Now, because of this new policy we can still use our purchased tickets, re book or even refund it if there is an emergency and we can’t attend to our travel because of some commitments.

The said resolution will take place this coming June 15, so I hope nothing problems occur so we passengers will truly enjoy our travel experience.
