AirAsia Philippines has pledged to keep ticket prices affordable for travelers this December. The airline is preparing to fly approximately 450,000 guests to domestic and international destinations during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Steve Dailisan, AirAsia’s Head for Communications and Public Affairs, stated, “It is our commitment to provide our guests with the lowest ticket price in the market whilst maintaining our positive on-time performance and the utmost consideration for safety.”

AirAsia Philippines is also advising its guests to book their flights and schedule travel time ahead of the holiday rush. Last year, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) recorded a daily passenger arrival and departure high of 125,000 during the Christmas holiday peak. The Bureau of Immigration (BI) logged 32,000 arrivals on Christmas Eve.

Dailisan added, “While we cannot avoid last-minute changes in travel arrangements, it really pays off to plan ahead. This way you can still get the best value for your money and foresee days which are more less-hassle for travel.”

In celebration of its 22nd birthday, AirAsia is offering a 22% discount on flights. The sale includes one-way base fare domestic flights ranging from PHP 79 to PHP 449 and international flights from PHP 479 to PHP 2,838. The sale runs from 27 November to 3 December, with a travel period between 8 January to 30 September 2024.

Additionally, pre-booked AirAsia ancillary products are heavily discounted. Guests who book their baggage via airasia.com or Superapp can enjoy up to 71% off versus the actual airport price. Santan meals and other goodies, including holiday favorites Bibingka and AirAsia’s newest 92’ Signature Blend specialty coffee, are also up to 24% off when pre-booked online.
