AirAsia Philippines on the road to recovery after noting a 30% increase in seats sold

Philippines AirAsia sees an improvement in its performance since the resumption of commercial services in June. From the time the Philippine government has eased travel restrictions, the airline saw an increase in seats sold by 30%.

According to Ricky Isla, CEO of AirAsia Philippines, "AirAsia’s road to recovery has started, and this has kept us in good spirits knowing that we are in the midst of the aviation industry’s upturn. We are committed to gradually restoring our network. This month (July), we are glad to resume international flights, starting with Kuala Lumpur, where AirAsia’s headquarters is located."

Last June, the AirAsia group set a record breaking 41,000 seats sold in a single day post-flight suspension in which the Philippine-unit was a huge contributor. Popular routes booked include Manila to Puerto Princesa and Davao. Flights to and from Davao similarly showed consistently high load factors throughout the month.

Operating flights from all hubs

AirAsia sees the importance of operating from all its hubs which include Manila, Cebu, and Clark. After resuming flights in June, AirAsia operated 9 routes from all its hubs which translates to 200 commercial flights last June, carrying 10,000 passengers.

The airline is currently operating 11 routes which include an international flight to Malaysia. AirAsia will be adding more international and domestic flights by August.
