AirAsia celebrated its maiden flights to GodofredoP. Ramos airport (Caticlan) last March 15, 2017, with flight Z2 221 departing Manila on time at 10:55 AM followed by Z2 223 at 2:30 PM, both with 100% load.

Philippines AirAsia Director for Flight Operations Captain Gomer Monreal said:

We are thrilled to be finally flying to and from Caticlan using our big planes or jets after the much needed improvements and airport runway expansions have been completed.

Travelers will get to see more of our Airbus A320s iconic red planes at Caticlan in the coming weeks as we will also begin to fly Cebu-Caticlan and Davao-Caticlan on April 22.

Amazingly, the newly constructed Nabas Apron at Caticlan Airport has nine parking bays with a total length of 1,800 meters single runway making it accessible for bigger and more modern aircraft like AirbusA320s than the smaller turbo propeller aircraft.

To celebrate AirAsia’s first flight to Caticlan, a send-off program was held at Manila’s NAIA Terminal 4 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by officials from AirAsia, Manila International Airport and Azalea Hotel with all guests on board the first flight getting free Sunnies sunglasses. AirAsia flight Z2 221 was also welcomed with a water cannon salute in Caticlan airport.

AirAsia flights to and from Caticlan operate using the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320s that can accommodate up to 180 passengers.
