AirAsia Inaugural Flight to Kuala Lumpur, More Flights to KL

Philippines’ Air Asia launched on June 9 its first international flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  I’m lucky to be one of the passengers of this inaugural flight.

Writing my dedication to AirAsia on the wall!


Congratulations AirAsia! I’m glad to be a part of your history!


AirAsia Philippines’ 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 AirAsia’s existing Kuala Lumpur –  Clark – Kuala Lumpur morning flights which have been in operation since 2005.

All aboard!

“The 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 Malaysia’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 Filipino” AirAsia Inc. CEO Maan Hontiveros.



True indeed, my friends from Malaysia Angeline and Satkuro have already flown early on from Malaysia to Clark, then hoppin on the plane directly to Kalibo!

The new route will be operated with brand new Airbus A320.
