Philippines’ AirAsia Flies to Singapore
I love it when we have more options to fly! I better start booking for the next F1 season in Singapore and Tech fairs!
AirAsia’s Clark-Singapore daily flights begins today!
Philippines’ AirAsia, the country’s newest low cost carrier, launched its newest Clark to Singapore route Saturday, December 15. Flight PQ 7491, operated by an all Filipino flight and cabin crew, left Clark International Airport at 6:10AM and arrived at Terminal 1 of Singapore’s Changi Airport at 9:40AM carrying 180 passengers including celebrity singer and artist Jim Paredes, guests from Singapore Tourism Board, officials from trade and tourism industry and friends from the media.
Head of Commercial for AirAsia Inc. Freddy Herrera said: “Today’s celebration reaffirms our commitment to help drive tourism and trade in the country especially in Clark, Pampanga where we base our operations. With our newest routes and low fares, we are connecting more and more people from the Philippines to Singapore and to AirAsia’s extensive network covering 85 destinations in 24 countries.”
AirAsia’s Clark-Singapore inaugural flight took place Saturday (December 15) following a pre-launch celebration dubbed as “Sing your way to Singapore” at Widus Convention Center in Clark, Pampanga attended by officials from Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), Department of Tourism (DoT), Singapore Tourism Board and officials from travel and leisure industries. The festivities kicked off with the arrival of guests from Metro Manila on board a special jeepney that has a sing-along service.
“Singapore is an attractive destination for Filipinos and AirAsia will make it even more attractive for our guests with our super low promo fares, reliable and on time service,” Herrera said.
There are 177,600 Filipinos in Singapore with 106,600 of them working as professionals and the remaining 71,000 are domestic helpers according to the Philippine embassy in Singapore.
“AirAsia’s daily routes to Singapore cater to the growing demand for both business and leisure travel, and equally important, this new route will provide low cost, high value service for our OFWs in Singapore so they can come home and reunite with their families as often as possible,” Herrera added.
