There are now more reasons (and more places) to paint the skies RED!
AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline, has announced its latest route to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with four times weekly direct flights from Davao commencing on December 21, 2017.
That’s right, folks!
Operated exclusively by AirAsia Berhad (flight code AK), this newest route is the fourth direct route from the Philippines to Malaysia after Manila, Cebu and Kalibo.
The well-received launch event was attended by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes, DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez, Ambassador Alfredo Yao, one of the Filipino investors of AirAsia Philippines and AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador.
During the event, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio shared that they see Davao City as a major point of growth in the international market, especially with agriculture being the city’s largest industry. Their aim for the city is also to grow it to become a hub for financial, tourism, service and education in Mindanao. She adds that the introduction of the direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Davao could not be more timely and is a key step in this direction to empower local players across various economic activities.
