AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline, yesterday welcomed the maiden flight of its new Macao-Kalibo service at Kalibo International Airport.
Guests on board Flight Z2073 departed from Macao International Airport at 2.00pm and landed in Kalibo at 4.35pm local time yesterday.
This new daily service is the third direct route from Macao to the Philippines and also marks the seventh new international direct route from Kalibo this year.
Philippines AirAsia CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “Boracay is one of the most beautiful island destinations in the region. With the launch of this service, we are pleased to offer the only direct flight between Macao and Kalibo, the gateway to Boracay. This new route adds to our strong network of leisure destinations from Macao, including Phuket, Krabi, Pattaya, Cebu and Kota Kinabalu, bringing residents of the Greater Bay Area closer to sun, sea and surf of Asean.
“We are thankful to have received strong support from local authorities and our partners. With this new direct service, we look forward to providing more choice for our guests in Kalibo, as well as help to stimulate tourism in both directions.”
AirAsia now operates direct flights from Kalibo to Chengdu, Kunming, Hangzhou, Macao, Busan, Seoul and Clark, Manila, Davao and Cebu in the Philippines.
