Airphil Express marks Independence Day with P113 local ticket sales

Airphil Express, reputedly the country’s fastest growing budget airline, is offering a P113 one-way fare for all domestic flights on board its redefined A320 aircraft to commemorate the declaration of Philippine independence on June 12, 1998 from Spain.

Selling period is from June 12 to 13 only and travel validity is from October 1 to November 30, 2011.
 Airphil said this special, one-time promotion is part of the company’s celebration of the country’s esteemed Flag Day. "The Philippines is proud to have gained its freedom from the Spaniards’ imposing takeover 113 years ago. And no sweeter means to celebrate this valued independence than by traveling to some of the country’s beautiful destinations,” says Alfredo Herrera, Airphil Express Senior Vice President for Marketing and Sales.

On top of the P113 one-way ticket cost is Airphil Express’ complimentary value-adds like 15kg free check-in baggage allowance and a no-cost 7kg hand-carry.

Airphil also announced it is set to introduce Cebu-Hong Kong flights starting July 28, 2011. And as a welcoming treat to all, its inaugural Hong Kong flight is at an amazingly low P888 per way fare. This promo offer is good for travel from July 28 to December 15, 2011. Selling period is from June 4 to 10, 2011.

Since it started operations as Airphil Express on March 2010, the company has introduced more than 23 domestic flights from Manila alone. And to prepare future expansion over the regional market, the airline company has acquired an additional four A320 aircraft.

As the company continues its aggressive stance, Airphil Express now adds Hong Kong to its international routes. Airphil Express’ maiden intercontinental flight is Singapore, launched at the later part of 2010.

"With this new Cebu-Hong Kong flight, we are optimistic that the country’s alliance with Hong Kong will grow deeper. Also, Hong Kong has a lot to offer to the Filipinos as the Philippines has loads of wonderful culture and tourists destinations to offer Hong Kong nationals,” says Herrera.

Airphil Express will fly to Cebu-Hong Kong (vice versa) onboard its newly acquired A320 aircraft. With its optimized legroom and elbowroom, easily accessible stowage spaces, and world-class services from its pilots and cabin crew, Airphil Express’ airbuses has redefined modern air travel.
