AirAsia Philippines gears up for the Summer; shares useful tips to avoid travel hassles

Fly to your favorite summer destinations for only P33.00 one-way base fare with 3.3 SALE!

AirAsia Philippines is giving away some important tips for travelers, especially with only a few days before the official start of the summer season.

Summer which officially starts on 1 March and ends on 31 May 2024 is an important occasion for Filipinos,  when many  typically use up their vacation leave to fulfill their travel bucket list or spend quality time with their loved ones.

To date, more than 700,000 guests have already booked their flights for travel between the months of March to May for both domestic and international destinations. AirAsia expects this figure to increase significantly during this period as Summer rapidly approaches.

We know how much Filipinos anticipate this time of the year to explore beaches, enjoy gastronomic adventures and spend quality time with family and loved ones. They can always count on AirAsia to provide the best deals, along with safe, convenient  and hassle free travel,  especially for first time travelers,” AirAsia Head of Communications and Public Affairs and First Officer Steve Dailisan shares.

Before inviting everyone to “LFG – Let’s Fly and Go!”, the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline is sharing these tips for the best summer experience:

• Prepare essential travel documents. It is important to secure all travel documents such as passports, visas, hotel reservations, and other supporting documents if you are traveling abroad. It is also a must to accomplish the e-travel form at least 72 hours before your scheduled departure and arrival to the Philippines. Philippine Travel Tax can also be settled online via tieza.gov.ph. For those traveling within the country, AirAsia check-in counters require at least one valid government ID for proper identification.

• Avoid the traffic and arrive early. Guests are highly encouraged to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to their scheduled departure for domestic flights (NAIA Terminal 2), and 4 hours for international (NAIA Terminal 3). Also expect that more people will be flying during the summer season, so have extra patience for  longer queues at the airport.

• Take advantage of online check-in platforms. Guests are highly encouraged to check-in via platforms such as AirAsia MOVE (formerly airasia Superapp) o airasia.com which will enable them to purchase add-ons such as Santan inflight meals, baggage allowances, and hot seats which are 10-20% less. AirAsia self check-in kiosks are also available at the NAIA Terminals 2 and 3.

• Book your flights early. Booking flights early not only gives travelers more time to plan their trip, but provides   savings as flights booked earlier are generally cheaper than booking closer into the travel date.  It is also good to take advantage of sales and promos such as the ongoing 3.3 SALE which is available for domestic and international flights. 3.3 LFG Summer Sale offers a P33.00 one-way base fare for flights booked until 3 March which can be used for travel until 16 October 2024 to domestic destinations such as Caticlan, Puerto Princesa, Bohol, and international destinations like Bangkok, Taipei, Seoul, and Tokyo.

AirAsia Philippines reminds the public to only book their flights and make purchases from airasia MOVE, airasia.com, or legit third party booking partners and travel agents. The World’s Best Low-Cost Airline also reminds guests that any form of selling made through various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok are not valid.
