Cebu Pacific is rehiring laid-off cabin workers.

Cebu Pacific (CEB), a low-cost carrier, stated on Saturday that it will rehire its retrenched cabin workers.

Last year, the aviation industry was one of the most impacted by the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, and the carrier had to lay off roughly 1,300 people.

While CEB spokesperson Carmina Romero could not provide a specific number of flight crew among the 1,300, she said the airline would give priority to those who had been laid off.

“For this, the cabin crew comes first. Hiring began the day before yesterday “According to the Philippine News Agency, she stated.

As the country relaxes travel restrictions to additional countries and CEB prepares for growth and recovery, they are being rehired.

Felix Lopez, CEB vice president for People and Admin, acknowledged the country’s Covid-19 response in a statement, saying it had created the ground for “further recovery” in the travel and aviation sectors.

“This has resulted in an increase in travel demand, allowing us to hire extra cabin crew to support CEB’s expansion and recovery,” he explained.

The airline also stated that all of its flight crews had been immunized against Covid-19.

Meanwhile, Romero stated that CEB will fly to Bacolod from Manila every Tuesday and Thursday with fully vaccinated passengers. The move is in favor of Negros Occidental’s local government’s vaccination campaign.

Beginning November 15, CEB will raise Bacolod flight frequencies from twice weekly to nine times weekly. From November 16, 2021, until January 15, 2022, flights are available exclusively for fully vaccinated individuals on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
