AirAsia to resume PH domestic flights starting June 3
MANILA, Philippines — AirAsia announced on Sunday that it will be resuming its domestic flights starting June 3 as quarantine protocols are eased in several areas in the country including Metro Manila.
In an advisory, AirAsia said that resumption of services will gradually increase to include international destinations by July 1.
Selected domestic flights are available for booking via the airline’s website or mobile application. Travelers can also use their credit accounts to redeem these flights.
AirAsia also announced that operations for domestic flights will be temporarily moved to Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport from its previous location at Terminal 4.
Travelers were advised to expect enhanced safety measures which include the mandatory wearing of face masks to be permitted to travel, among others.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said assured the traveling public that they are “well prepared to welcome everyone aboard.”
“During the hibernation of our fleet, we took the time to step up our handling procedures to ensure that our guests have a swift and safe journey with us. Needless to say, we are well prepared to welcome everyone onboard,” Isla said.
“As we resume our services around our network, AirAsia is determined to help rebuild our economy and country,” Isla added.
Other airline companies such as Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific have earlier announced resumption of some flight operations this June.
