The AirAsia Red Hot Sinulog party showcases fireworks and awesome performances from Maja Salvador and KZ Tandingan!

What an incredible celebration! AirAsia took me to the Sinulog Festival just a few weeks ago to witness how they painted Cebu skies red. The World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for ten years running hosted one of this year’s grandest Sinulog events. Dubbed the Red Hot Sinulog, the festivities were held held in Cebu Business Park with over 180,000 spectators and featured celebrity singers KZ Tandingan, Maja Salvador, and Autotelic.

According to AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador, Filipinos, and travelers from all over the world came to Cebu to witness a powerful expression of Cebuanos’ faith and unique celebration of our Filipino culture.

By the way, just in case you aren’t aware (but you probably already are), AirAsia offers several flights to and from Cebu from Manila, Clark, Palawan, Boracay and Davao, Cagayan De Oro with international flights to Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Shenzhen in China. The airline is also set to launch new flights from Cebu to Macau starting 8 February 2019. Oh, goody!

Captain Dex, as we fondly call him, added that AirAsia’s commitment then and now, is to provide excellent service, unparalleled low fares, safe, fun, and reliable with world-class airline service. He mentions that these are the hallmarks of the AirAsia brand of service that every Cebuano, every Filipino, every traveler truly deserves.

It was so fun celebrating Sinulog once again after a good number of years. Many were actually impressed by how incredibly organized and safe the entire AirAsia Red Hot Sinulog festivities were.

Also, the celebration was a great way to showcase just how talented their cabin crew are. A few AirAsia cabin crew members from the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia wowed the crowd with a dance performance in their red uniform as they were later joined on stage by AirAsia Philippines executives led by the airline’s chairperson Maan Hontiveros, CEO Captain Dexter Comendador and commercial head Gilbert Simpao.

I especially loved the way Cebu skies turned red as the Red Hot Sinulog party ended with a fireworks display that showcased the dazzling colors of Cebu’s cultural and religious influences and AirAsia’s iconic red logo.
