AirAsia launches their direct flight from Manila to Bangkok!
During the ceremony which happened just before their inaugural flight, AirAsia Philippines CEO Dexter Comendador said that AirAsia is a product of Asean and that they are so proud to be part of this region we call home. He shared that AirAsia is the only airline that carries the “I love Asean” painted on their aircraft including the ASEAN logo. This is AirAsia’s commitment to help bridge communities and economies as they move towards even greater integration and mutual understanding.
Tourism Authority of Thailand Director Kajorndet Apichartrakul congratulated AirAsia at the send-off ceremony held at the airport with 180 guest passengers in attendance.
“We want to bring people across the Asean region closer together and further expand our Asean footprint to serve more and more communities. We have 100% load for this inaugural flight and we hope to do more inter-Asean routes to serve every Filipino traveler’s needs and enable them to connect, do business, and build socio-economic ties with neighboring economies,” Comendador said.
AirAsia also offers several flights to Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore from Manila, Davao and Cebu in the Philippines.
AirAsia is proud to be a truly Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) airline with established operations based in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, India, and Japan, servicing a network stretching across all Asean countries and beyond. They are the only airline group that flies direct to all ten Asean countries.
