• AirAsia celebrates inaugural flight from Manila to Ho Chi Minh City

      AirAsia is now flying to Ho Chi Minh City, one of the most vibrant and biggest cities in Vietnam.

      AirAsia, voted the World’s Best Low-Cost Carrier for nine years running, flew its maiden flight from Manila to Ho Chi Minh City today with send-off ceremonies held at NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) Terminal 3 led by AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador with His Excellency Ly Quoc Tuan, Ambassador of Viet Nam to the Philippines, as keynote speaker.

      AirAsia flight Z2 294 with the pilot in command Captain Dexter Comendador left Manila on time at 10:25 PM with 180 passengers on board or a 100% load and arrived in Tan Son Nhat International Airport at 1:05 AM.

      “AirAsia is a product of Asean and we are so proud to be part of this region we call home. Three days ago, we formally presented an ASEAN plane bearing ‘I love Asean’ logo or livery in one of our planes to mark the golden jubilee of Asean and to celebrate our commitment as the only carrier that services direct flights to all ten Asean countries. We do love Asean so much that today we are starting Manila-Saigon and early next year we are to fly Manila – Bali, and Manila – Jakarta next.” AirAsia Philippines CEO Dexter Comendador said.

      AirAsia has recently launched AirAsia Loves Asean, a series of initiatives focused on education, talent development, and the economy to celebrate 50 years of Asean. The initiatives comprise the AirAsia Asean University Partnership, Asean Entrepreneurs Day, Asean Journalists Camp and Allstars Exchange Programme.

      AirAsia’s Manila-Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon flights are scheduled every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday.
