AirAsia starts flights to Kalibo, Philippines, in April

PETALING JAYA (Feb 19, 2014): AirAsia Bhd will launch direct flights connecting Kuala Lumpur to Kalibo, the Philippines, from April 18, 2014.

In a press statement yesterday, it said the new four times weekly route to Kalibo will operate every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, marking AirAsia's third Filipino destination with direct flights available from Kuala Lumpur, Miri and Kota Kinabalu.

AirAsia CEO Aireen Omar said the Philippines is an emerging market for the low cost carrier to capture, especially with the presence of the group's affiliate, AirAsia Zest in the Philippines connecting communities domestically with low fares.

Kalibo is the capital of Aklan province and is known as the gateway to the beach paradise island of Boracay in the Philippines.
