MANILA -- AirAsia Philippines is boosting its Taiwan routes this year by increasing flight frequencies and launching a Taipei route from Kalibo International Airport by March, an executive told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Monday.
"We saw a lot of interest among Filipinos because of (Taiwan's) no visa policy," AirAsia Philippines corporate communications manager Genefer Tan said.
The carrier has added flight frequencies from Manila to Taipei, and also the flights between Manila and Kaohsiung.
Tan noted that AirAsia Philippines is the only airline that serves the Manila-Kaohsiung route.
"(AirAsia) also offers Cebu-Taipei and Clark-Taipei flights. Only AirAsia Philippines offers this (Clark-Taipei) route, too," she added.
Meanwhile, starting March 31, the budget carrier will begin servicing the Kalibo-Taipei route.
