AirAsia domestic flights to resume on June 3

Aviation Updates Philippines – Budget carrier Philippines AirAsia plans to gradually resume domestic flights on June 3, 2020, as the country eases community quarantine restrictions over key hubs in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

“During the hibernation of our fleet, we took the time to step up our handling procedures to ensure that our guests have a swift and safe journey with us. Needless to say, we are well prepared to welcome everyone on board. As we resume our services around our network, AirAsia is determined to help rebuild our economy and country,” Philippines AirAsia Chief Executive Officer Ricky Isla said.

Only a fraction of AirAsia's original capacity and route network would be restored initially while the airline adjusts for the restart. Starting July 1, the number of domestic services will increase following the restart of key international routes on the same day.

All routes from June 3 will depart from Manila and Clark hubs as of the moment. The company said flights will temporarily move to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 while Terminal 4 remains closed for operations.
