Air Asia offers P1 fare for travelers

By Eric B. Apolonio | Apr. 15, 2013 at 12:01am
Low-cost carrier Air Asia Philippines announced an estimated 30 percent fare discount to passengers to mark its first year anniversary since it established operations at Clark International Airport in Pampanga, officials said on Sunday.

Freddy Herrera, Air Asia Commercial Head, said bookings for their “One-peso base fare promo” will be accepted from April 15 to 21 for travel period from June 1 to September 30.

“It’s our birthday and we are giving our passengers a gift to thank them for their tremendous support as we look forward to another year of awesome trips and celebrations,” Herrera said.

The airline offers a one peso fare to all destinations, but passengers have to pay taxes and cost of fuel. Depending on the destination, it means an estimated discount of around 30 percent.

Bookings can made on Air Asia’s website www.airasia.com. Payments can be made at 7-Eleven, Bayad Center and Cebuana Lhuillier outlets nationwide.

“It is hard to believe it has been a year since we launched our operations. We had many challenges but the potential for growth is tremendous and we aim to play a big role in a growing market,” Herrera said.

“The passenger traffic in Clark has grown tremendously last year. We remain committed in providing our guests with the highest standards of safety, efficiency and quality service,” he said.

In Misamis Oriental in Mindanao, the government announced the opening of the P7.9 billion Laguindingan Airport, which replaced the existing Lumbia airport in Cagayan de Oro and the Baloi airport in Iligan.

The Civil Aviation Authority said the airports in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan have  terrain and weather restrictions that limit the safe operation of short to medium range twin engine and narrow-body jetliners such as the Airbus 320 or the Boeing B737.

Philippine Airline said its Manila-Cagayan de Oro flights will start to land and take and off at the Laguindingan airport starting on April 30.
