The airline’s 7.7 Mid-Year sale is set to buttress the increase in fuel surcharge amid volatile global fuel pricing
Amid the rising fuel surcharge brought about by the volatility of the global fuel market, AirAsia Philippines drops its base fares to as low as Php 77 from July 04 to July 10, 2022, as part of its 7.7 Mid-Year Sale Promo.
The base fare drop is also a bid to sustain the momentum of travel for both its domestic and international flights. As of June 2022, AirAsia Philippines has recorded an average month-on-month growth of 31 percent for its total guests flown domestically. The uptick in passengers was seen following the relaxation of border protocols and the downward trend of daily COVID cases in the country. The reopening of international flights and the gradual increase in flight frequency to cities abroad have also led to average month-on-month growth of 157 percent from February to June 2022 for AirAsia Philippines’ international routes.
AirAsia Philippines Spokesperson and Head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Dailisan shares: “We at AirAsia Philippines are determined to sustain travel momentum notwithstanding market movements such as the rise in fuel surcharge cost. As we remain committed to our DNA of affordable and inclusive flying, we buttress this increase through major promotions such as the 7.7 Mid-Year sale and through regular minor promotions throughout the month. We hope that our guests will move ahead with their travel plans this year as we make sure to offer the best value for money.”
Among the domestic destinations to boast a PHP 77 base fare are Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Puerto Princesa and Caticlan. Filipino globetrotters eyeing to cross international borders may also check Kota Kinabalu and Singapore, which come with a 777 base fare while Hong Kong and Bangkok can be enjoyed with low base fares of Php 1,377 and Php 1, 777, respectively.
The booking period for the 7.7 Mid-Year sale is from July 04 to July 10 for travels happening from September 01, 2022, to March 25, 2023.
