AirAsia Philippines is optimistic about meeting its goal of selling seats for 2023, as it has already reached 90 percent of the total target by October 2023, the airline has maintained an average load factor of 92 percent, and there are positive signs driving sales for the fourth quarter.
The low-cost carrier's target is expected to surpass its 2022 performance by a 60.07 percent positive difference with Filipinos encouraged to travel to various domestic and international destinations in time for the holiday season.
According to the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), having the longest Christmas and New Year celebrations in the world, this year's holidays are expected to draw some 125,000 daily passengers from mid-December 2023 until early January 2024.
The budget carrier is sustaining the travel momentum among Filipinos with its Ready, Set, Go 11.11 SALE, offering a one-way base fare from as low as P91 to domestic destinations and from P511 to P2,911 one-way base fare for international flights from November 6 to 12 for travels within November 6 2023 to April 30 2024.
"Historically, guests, especially those traveling in groups such as families and groups of friends, book their flights 30 to 45 days earlier than their target travel dates. AirAsia Philippines is giving our guests more options to plan their year-end flights and activities in advance. Lower ticket prices are also an advantage of booking flights early," said AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla.
AirAsia added that as of November 6, more than 150,000 AirAsia guests have already booked their flights for travel from December 15 - 31, 2023. "While this is still 50 percent of last year's booking for the same period, we are confident AirAsia Philippines will surpass this, especially with guests' renewed hunger for even more travel experiences."
