Philippines’ AirAsia rolls out Piso Fare promo

INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines--Philippines’ AirAsia, the country’s newest low cost carrier, on Monday rolled out its Piso Fare promo for all local and international destinations including Fly-Thru service from Clark International Airport to Australia.

“This promo is a testament to our commitment to stay competitive and provide the best value for Filipinos to travel at the lowest cost but with the best quality service,” AirAsia Inc. CEO Maan Hontiveros said at a press conference in Makati City on Monday.

With the Piso Fare promo, travellers who book via airasia.com starting July 23 until July 29 can now fly direct from Clark International Airport in Pampanga to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Macau and through AirAsia’s newest Fly-Thru service from Clark to Sydney and Perth in Australia for only one peso base fare.

The Fly-Thru service offers guests to seamlessly connect on multiple flight legs, on certain flights without needing to pass through immigration, collect bags, re check-in between flights or have a transit visa. Bags will also be automatically checked through to the final destination.

It also allows guests to connect from selected destinations in the AirAsia route network which spans across 20 countries and 80 destinations. All connecting destinations will come from AirAsia’s transit point in LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal) in Kuala Lumpur.

The Piso Fare promo is also offered for travellers bound from Clark to AirAsia’s domestic destinations such as Davao, Kalibo, and Puerto Princesa.

With AirAsia’s Piso Fare Promo, travellers will only pay one peso for the base fare excluding fuel surcharge, processing fee, aviation security fee and VAT.

“Our guests, who choose our lowest-cost flights, deserve to know what they are paying for. Having well-informed travellers is a key element of AirAsia’s business,”  Hontiveros explained.

AirAsia was the first domestic low-cost carrier to promote the “All-in-fare” concept in February this year when it launched its first ever promo seats.

Hontiveros stressed that AirAsia, unlike some competitors, does not intend to surprise clients with small prints of add-on costs, only to find they have to pay for so many other rate components.

“In the same month that we secured our AOC in February, AirAsia sparked a revolution in air travel when we launched an all-in fare by being transparent in our promo fares. We advertise promo fares which include the base fare, fuel surcharge, processing fee and government mandated fees such as aviation security fee and VAT. No hidden charges, no misleading promotions,” Hontiveros said.

AirAsia continues to change the landscape of low-cost travel, according to Hontiveros. With Piso Fare promo, “planning is easiest with rates all clearly laid out to our guests so that people will know which has the best value.”

“With this new promo we aim to expand the market based on informed choices and continuous exciting deals. These are part of distinguishing marks of our brand of low cost travel,” Hontiveros added.

A total of 1,000 seats are up for grabs with the Piso Fare promo. Guests are able to book their seats from now until July 29, 2012. Travel period is from July 25 to October 31, 2012.

For inquiry and updates, guests may call up Philippines’ AirAsia call center at +632 588 9999 from Monday to Sunday at 0800hrs to 2100hrs (GMT +8).

Guests from Metro Manila may also purchase seats through AirAsia Travel Service Centers (ATSC) located in SM North Edsa in Quezon City and in Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
