Philippinesâ€™ Air Asia launched on June 9 its first international flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Iâ€™m lucky to be one of the passengers of this inaugural flight.
Writing my dedication to AirAsia on the wall!
Congratulations AirAsia! Iâ€™m glad to be a part of your history!
AirAsia Philippinesâ€™ first flight to Kuala Lumpur!
We boarded Flight PQ 7455 at 3:15pm and arrived minutes earlier than the scheduled 7:00pm arrival.
This new daily route complements Malaysia AirAsiaâ€™s existing Kuala Lumpur â€“ Clark â€“ Kuala Lumpur morning flights which have been in operation since 2005.
â€œThe additional frequency to Kuala Lumpur provides yet another link for Filipinos and Malaysians in the areas of business and tourism. But more important, we want to draw tourists from Malaysia to our amazing beaches and natural wonders in Puerto Princesa, Kalibo, Davao and here in Central Luzon. If we are able to draw even a fraction from Malaysiaâ€™s 24.5 million tourists, this will impact on our tourist arrival record for 2012, which means more jobs, more food on the table, more opportunities for every Filipinoâ€ AirAsia Inc. CEO Maan Hontiveros.
The new route will be operated with brand new Airbus A320.
early on, AirAsia Philippines celebrated with friends from Media
It was great being a part of this! I made new friends!
With me on the flight is Upper Viceo of PHL360.com
Iâ€™ll blog more about my trip to Malaysia in the next post!
