Cebu Pacific to implement new baggage rules
Cebu Pacific Air started the strict implementation of their policy for check-in baggage on January 15, 2019. Charo Lagamon, spokesperson for the airline, said the policy is the same one the company announced last year. It will only be strictly monitoring it. The policy limits the number of baggage for a specific purchased weight. Passengers who purchase the standard baggage allowance can check in up to two pieces of baggage. On the other hand, an extra large baggage allowance allows passengers to check in four pieces of baggage. If they exceed the allowable number, passengers have to pay for excess luggage. In the past, passengers were allowed to check-in as many luggage as they wanted as long as they did not go over the allowable baggage allowance.
Hotels and resorts downplay the medical waste issue
The recent issue on medical wastes found floating in the Mactan Channel was downplayed by the Hotels, Resort, and Restaurant Association of Cebu (HRRAC). While Lapu-Lapu City health officials advised against swimming in the Mactan Channel, Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza said it was safe to swim on the other side of the island or along the Hilutungan Channel. Carlo Suarez, HRRAC president, said the issue was an isolated case and the local government was already addressing it together with the hospitals involved. He added that occupancy among Mactan resorts and hotels is high for the month of January.
