AirAsia Philippines plans to double the number of flights operating during March after Manila relaxed travel restrictions for international passengers. The LCC said that service to Caticlan will be increased to 34x weekly, Iloilo to 14x weekly, Tacloban to 24x weekly, Panglao to 14x weekly, Puerto Princesa to 9x weekly, Bacolod to 14x weekly, Davao to 11x weekly, Cagayan de Oro to 9x weekly, Kalibo to 11x weekly, and Cebu to 21x weekly.
Steve Dalisan, spokesperson of AirAsia Philippines, said: “The increase in our flight frequency is part of our commitment to make sure that we will be able to prop up and support the demand towards summer.”
Between February 1 to 17 the Manila International Airport showed that 79,337 tourists arrived in the country, with 91% full vaccinated against Covid-19. This compared with 439,852 foreign arrivals in the same month pre-pandemic in 2020.
AirAsia Philippines is scheduled to open two new routes – Dumaguete in April and Roxas in June. Guests can also expect to return to their favorite regional destinations with the reopening of the Bangkok and Bali flights next month and Incheon in April on top of the existing Singapore and Hong Kong flights.
