The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) expands its payment center options to include the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), in a move to make online booking even more convenient to travelers without credit cards.
CEB airfare payments can now be done over the counter on BPI branches, or via BPI Expressphone or Expressonline.
To use payment centers, passengers can book online via www.cebupacificair.com and click on the Payment Centers tab upon reaching the payment page. The website will provide a 14-digit reference number and total amount to be paid. This amount can be paid on or before 23:59H of the same day.
Aside from BPI, payment center options include Robinsons Bank, Banco de Oro (BDO), Metrobank, Megalink, BancNet, Bayad Center, LBC, Robinsons Department Store and SM Department Store.
“CEB continues to encourage guests to book online, because it’s the fastest and most convenient way to book seats. The addition of BPI to our list of payment centers gives CEB passengers more options when booking their flights,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
