More flights, more options: AirAsia connects Cebu to key Asian destinations

AirAsia Philippines announced plans to expand international flights from Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA), aiming to reopen routes to key destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Narita, Osaka, Taipei, and Seoul.

The airline currently operates flights connecting MCIA to Manila, Boracay, Davao, and Puerto Princesa.

This expansion aligns with the launch of the “Cebu Connect” initiative by Aboitiz GMR MEGAWIDE Cebu Airport Corporation (AGMCAC), which seeks to establish MCIA as a primary transfer hub with a minimum connectivity time (MCT) of 60 minutes.

“We commend AGMCAC’s initiative for simplifying airport transfers, providing a significant boost for millions of passengers accessing a broader range of destinations and enhancing the convenience of connecting flights,” Isla said.

He added that integrating Cebu Connect into AirAsia Philippines’ services would enhance service quality and reinforce the airline’s position as the leading low-cost carrier globally.

Isla also highlighted the accessibility of transfers between AirAsia Philippines flights and those of partner airlines, noting that Cebu Connect would provide millions of passengers with access to a wider network of destinations.

“With this opportunity, we aim to introduce new routes including Bangkok, Vietnam, Phnom Penh, and additional cities in North Asia, expanding travel options and solidifying Cebu’s role as a key international hub in the region,” he concluded.

AirAsia Philippines currently operates flights to 13 domestic and 13 international destinations.
