The website also displays a large photo of Cebu Pacific Air staff. The airline’s logo can also be found at the top left of the website.

The complaint was submitted to Rappler via email for verification.

This statement is false.

The website that users are redirected to by clicking on the link is fake and claims to be the Cebu Pacific Air website.

Cebu Pacific Air’s official website and Facebook page do not contain any postings or announcements regarding a cash gift of any amount that will be given for its birthday celebration.

Cebu Pacific Air celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021 with a three-day “Piso” sale. Tickets purchased during this sale were only valid from June 1 to December 31, 2021. The airline did not offer any cash gifts under the said promotion.
