Posted on February 16, 2017

THE PHILIPPINE unit of Asia’s biggest budget carrier AirAsia Berhad said it will launch Boracay flights via Caticlan starting next month in anticipation of heavy passenger volume to the island destination this summer.

Passengers board an AirAsia Airbus A320 plane at the domestic airport in Manila on May 23, 2014.
In a statement, Philippines AirAsia, Inc. said it will start offering twice daily flights from Manila to Boracay via Caticlan airport starting March 15, using the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320s that can accommodate up to 180 passengers.

“It’s an exciting time to be in Boracay this summer with AirAsia’s signature low fares now available for direct flights to Caticlan airport. Our twice daily flights will significantly enhance connectivity to one of the world’s best island destinations,” Philippines AirAsia CEO Dexter M. Comendador was quoted as saying.

AirAsia also maintains four times daily flights from Manila to Kalibo airport including international flights from Kuala Lumpur and Incheon/Seoul and has announced it will restart Clark-Kalibo flights starting March 27.

With the introduction of Caticlan flights, AirAsia is offering promo fares from as low as P1,699 until Feb. 19. Travel period is between March 15 and June 18, 2017. -- Imee Charlee C. Delavin
