Cebu Pacific, Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines Commit to Inclusive Air Travel

Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier, has struck a partnership with the Down
Syndrome Association of the Philippines, Inc. (DSAPI) to enhance awareness and support for
people with Down syndrome.
CEB signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with DSAPI to launch collaborative projects,
including travel familiarization activities for DSAPI members, sensitivity training for CEB
employees, and public awareness campaigns. These initiatives are designed to empower
individuals with Down syndrome and promote a culture of acceptance in air travel.
"At Cebu Pacific, inclusivity very much aligned with our purpose. We're dedicated to flying
every Juan through our affordable fares and extensive network. We look forward to partnering
with DSAPI to enhance our programs to provide an accessible and welcoming travel experience
for all passengers. We also hope that the immersion programs will also help members of the
DSAPI community, " said Candice Iyog, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer at
Cebu Pacific.
DSAPI, a non-profit organization advocating for the rights and welfare of those with Down
syndrome, welcomes the partnership as a milestone in advancing their cause. "Traveling by air
is challenging for most people with Down syndrome and their families due to lack of awareness
and support system. We are grateful for partners like Cebu Pacific who share our vision of
building an inclusive society where people with Down syndrome can actively participate and
achieve their full potential,” said Elmer Lapena, DSAPI Chairman.
Operating across 35 domestic and 24 international destinations spanning across Asia, Australia,
and the Middle East, CEB is steadfast in its commitment to champion inclusiveness and making
the gift of air travel accessible to more people.
