Cebu Pacific offers the cheapest RT-PCR test at only P2,500 versus other local carriers

The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), ramps up its Test Before Boarding (TBB) process as it now offers the cheapest RT-PCR test at only P2,500 versus other local carriers, exclusively for its passengers. 

CEB offers the RT-PCR test through its two accredited partners –Health Metrics, Inc. (HMI) and Safeguard DNA Diagnostics Inc. (SDDI). This special rate is solely for passengers booked on Cebu Pacific and Cebgo. 

As a number of local and international destinations still require negative RT-PCR test results prior to entry, CEB has ensured this requirement is made more accessible and affordable through these reduced rates.  Results are guaranteed to be released within 48 hours, while a guaranteed 24-hour turnaround period is priced at PHP 3,200 for both laboratories.

HMI has clinics in Pasay and Makati; while SDDI has facilities in Mandaluyong, Bacolod, and Davao.

“We continue to do what we can to rebuild the public’s trust and confidence in air travel. As we remain committed to providing affordable flights for everyJuan, we also made it a point to see where else we can reduce costs for our passengers – we are happy to work with our laboratory partners to make available the cheapest RT-PCR swab test rates that may conveniently be booked on our website,” said Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for Marketing and Customer Experience.

The Philippine Airport Diagnostic Laboratory (PADL) also offers both RT-PCR and antigen tests exclusively for CEB passengers, for only PHP 3,300 and PHP 700, respectively. The TBB testing facility at the NAIA Terminal 3 is also open for walk-ins daily, with fees to be directly paid to PADL. 

Passengers booked on Cebu Pacific and Cebgo can easily choose and book appointments via From there, everyJuan will be redirected to each laboratory's page to finalize their schedule online.

Testing is just one out of the three key steps CEB strictly implements to regain passenger confidence. Other approaches include safety and sanitation, as well as track and trace. CEB continues to implement a multi-layered approach to safety and has been rated 7/7 stars by for its COVID-19 compliance. Passengers are also constantly reminded to register in the Department of Transportation's Traze App for a more efficient contact tracing process.

Guests are strongly urged to always check with the LGU of their destination for latest updates.  For a list of travel requirements, testing options, flexibility options and frequently asked questions, passengers may conveniently visit


  1. Wow so nice naman talaga ng cebu pacific dahil sila ung merong pinaka mura na offer na RT-PCR test for only 2500. Sure na safe ka talagang makakapag travel and laking tipid din nito đŸ„°

  2. this is a good news for CEB passengers. we know that it is a must to have an RT-PCR test before you can freely roam around everywhere but it is expensive. nice gesture from CEB to give discounts for their passenger with testings.

  3. I think this offer of Cebu Pacific which is the Cheapest RT-PCR test at only p2,500. RT-PCR test is really important for those travelers since they are required to have a negative RT-PCR teat results to entry. It's really awesome that CEB has ensured this requirements is made more accessible and affordable through these reduced rates. This is a beg help.
