Cebu and Caticlan flights of AirAsia to depart from NAIA 3 starting Dec. 16

As the flight assignment transfers continues, AirAsia Philippines announced that amid the growing holiday-driven foot traffic, its flight from Manila to Cebu and Caticlan will depart from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 beginning December 16, 2022.

The transfer is expected to significantly ease the queues and passenger load at the much-smaller NAIA Terminal 4 where the airline operates the remainder of its domestic flights. A total of 109 combined weekly flights will be transferred to NAIA Terminal 3, set to be operated alongside all the international flights of AirAsia Philippines.

AirAsia Philippines Chief Executive Officer Ricky Isla said: “The exponential growth in the holiday demand this year is expected, especially given the fact that travel restrictions today are way more relaxed compared to the previous years’. We are optimistic that by moving our busiest domestic flights to NAIA Terminal 3, we get to alleviate the travel woes of our kababayans in aspects such as queuing, waiting and boarding.”

AirAsia Philippines’ Cebu route posted an 85 percent November load factor, while the Caticlan route achieved a high 90 percent. The airline also remains to fly to Caticlan and Cebu via other regional hubs, such as Clark International Airport and the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

AirAsia Philippines reminds its guests to regularly visit the AirAsia SuperApp or the AirAsia flysafe page for updates on flight schedules and travel protocols. International passengers are also encouraged to accomplish the new eArrival Card available at One Health Pass before their scheduled arrival in the country.
