Cebu Pacific does not permit any type of live animal to fly in the cabin of its aircraft unless on flights to and from the United States and your pet is a service or emotional support animal.

A service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with disability where such work or tasks are directly related to the individual's disability and includes an emotional support or psychiatric service dog.

When flying with an emotional support dog, passengers are required to present a written document under the letterhead of a licensed mental health professional, dated no more than 1 year from the date of departure, stating:

  • the mental or emotional disability is recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM IV)
  • the need for the animal as an accommodation for air travel or for an activity at the destination
  • the assessment has been done by a licensed mental health professional and the passenger is under his or her care
  • the date and type of the mental health professional's license and the location in which it was issued.
