AirAsia Philippines supports return of Vis-Min festivals


AirAsia Philippines is offering low-cost fares to support the return of Philippine festivals after the pandemic.

The airline is committed to bolstering various festivities in the country to enhance economic growth through travel.

AirAsia Philippines Country Head for Communications & Public Affairs First Officer Steve Dailisan said that festivals are deeply rooted in the Philippine culture and are often associated with family reunions.

“AirAsia Philippines is strongly backing the return of festivities to foster inclusive economic growth in various destinations where we fly,” Dailisan said.

AirAsia is offering P99 one-way base fares to different local destinations for travel from September 4, 2023, to March 31, 2024.

The P99 fares are available for booking from September 4 to October 1, 2023.

Here are some of the upcoming festivals that travelers can enjoy with AirAsia’s low fares:

  • Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival in Tacloban City
  • Halaran and Sinadya Festivals in Roxas City
  • Masskara Festival in Bacolod City
  • Hermosa Festival in Zamboanga City

AirAsia Philippines is also working with the Department of Tourism to achieve its goal of revitalizing the tourism industry with an anticipated 100% recovery of domestic tourism with a target of 4.8 million tourists this year.

The airline has also expressed strong support for fostering a stronger connection between the Philippines and Thailand.

Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri earlier sought the commitment of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to facilitate flights between Thailand and other tourist destinations in the Visayas and Mindanao.

“As one of the leading Philippine carriers backed by a strong regional network, AirAsia Philippines remains dedicated to empowering inclusive and accessible growth across the tourism and travel sectors. Should this proposal of Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri be realized, we expect the move to enable more inclusive growth across our regional destinations, and we aim to do it with the best value”, Dailisan said.

To ensure seamless travel, AirAsia Philippines advises its guests to check the airasia Superapp for booking options and all travel advisories and guidelines.

Guests flying to various domestic destinations are advised to be at the NAIA Terminal 2 at least three hours before departure. Meanwhile, guests traveling on international flights will continue to arrive and depart at the NAIA Terminal 3.
