AirAsia PH eyes Manila-Bangkok flights by Q2 2018
AirAsia Philippines has disclosed plans to launch its Bangkok flights from Manila in the second quarter of 2018, an apparent expansion by the domestic unit of the Malaysian budget carrier giant AirAsia Berhad.
“We are looking at launching Bangkok flights this 2Q to expand our Asean network, which also includes Manila/Cebu to Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu and Cebu – Singapore,” the airline said in a statement.
Last January 9, AirAsia PH launched its Manila-Jakarta flight. Manila-Bali route started on January 19.
“Bali is AirAsia Philippine’s newest international destination from Manila with flights departing daily from NAIA Terminal 3,” the airline said.
“With AirAsia’s signature low fares, superb service and massive connectivity, AirAsia hopes to bring Bali and the rest of the best island destinations across ASEAN including our very own Boracay, Palawan, Bohol and many others closer together for everyone to enjoy.”
“Our commitment is not only to build leisure destinations but also to help bridge communities and economies across the region as we move toward even greater integration and mutual understanding,” it added.
In November 2017, the airline also kicked off its Manila-Ho Chi Minh City route. /kga
