Low-cost carrier AirAsia Philippines has encouraged air travelers to comply the mandatory travel requirements to facilitate a hassle-free entry to the Philippines.

AirAsia Philippines has reminded arriving international passengers to complete the required travel requirement three days before the scheduled departure to avoid irritating inconvenience upon arrival in Manila.

The low-cost carrier said international guests should fill out the Philippine One-Stop Electronic Travel Declaration or eTravel card 72 hours prior to departure.

Travelers who failed to fill out the required eTravel card online will take a long time upon arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), unlike when it is accomplished then it would be a hassle-free entry to the country.

The eTravel platform which replaces the One Health Pass is the only travel requirement for fully vaccinated Filipino and international travelers. It is available online via .

"During the recent months, we monitored around 20 percent of arriving international guests who are still unable to complete the eTravel requirement prior to their flight, causing long queues at the arrival area. As a mandatory requirement of the Philippine government on safety and security, we would like to highly encourage the compliance of our guests as we promote a seamless customer experience with AirAsia," AirAsia PH head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Dailisan said.

The low-cost carrier also advised departing international passengers at the NAIA Terminal 3 to allocate ample time before their estimated time of departure to facilitate smooth check-in, security clearance, and immigration screening.

AirAsia PH said that the Department of Tourism noted that more than 4.8 million tourists are expected to visit the Philippines this year. The airline also expect arrivals beginning second quarter of 2023 during summer, especially for the island destinations including Bohol, Boracay, Cebu, and Puerto Princesa.

AirAsia said it recently opened its three times weekly flight to Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Travelers flying to Guangzhou (Canton), China, and Tokyo (Narita), Japan may now find the best value deals through airasia Super App. Flights to these key routes are expected to start next month.
