AirAsia to resume domestic flights on June 3 from NAIA terminal 3

Philippines AirAsia is resuming its domestic passenger flights starting June 3, however, flights will be limited to only a select number of domestic destinations. The resumption comes after the Philippine government easing the community quarantine over Metro Manila.

In a statement, Philippines AirAsia chief executive officer Ricky Isla said, "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. As we resume our services around our network, AirAsia is determined to help rebuild our economy and country.”

Manila and Clark

AirAsia will be resuming flights from only 2 of its hubs, namely Manila and Clark, starting June 3. The airline also operates from hubs in Cebu and Kalibo. The Clark hub will give passengers direct access to select domestic flights from the Central Luzon without having to transit to Manila.

The Manila hub will be operating flights to and from Cebu, Davao, Tacloban, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod and Tagbilaran. The Clark hub on the other hand will be operating flights to and from Tacloban, Cagayan de Oro, and Davao.

The airline will increase destinations and frequencies depending on other factors like travel restrictions, general health condition in destination, and travel demand.

Terminal 3 operations

AirAsia will be temporarily moving its flights to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminal 3 while terminal 4 remains closed for the time being. Since airports and airlines will be working on a lean work force when flights resume, it would be best for airlines to operate from fewer airports in order to maximize resources.

AirAsia Philippines had been operating from the NAIA 4 terminal for domestic flights.
