AirAsia is now flying three times weekly from Manila to Kaohsiung in Taiwan. The World’s Best Low-Cost Airline flew its maiden flight last October 30 from Manila’s NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) Terminal 3 to Kaohsiung International Airport, Taiwan’s second busiest airport.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “AirAsia is thrilled to add Manila – Kaohsiung to our growing list of exciting places to visit in Taiwan. With AirAsia’s unparalleled low fares and visa-free access to Taiwan for Filipinos, now is the best time to explore this massive port city and home to skyscrapers, shopping malls, night markets, parks, historical and natural wonders.”
To celebrate AirAsia’s newest flight, guests flying to Kaohsiung on the inaugural flight joined the send-off program attended by Ambassador Michael Peiyung Hsu of Taiwan Economic Cultural Office and NAIA Airport.
Aside from Manila – Kaohsiung, AirAsia also flies direct to Taipei from Manila, Clark and Cebu with several flights daily.
Kaohsiung is famous for towering buildings and diverse parks but the most notable is the Love River, where cafes and cruise boats navigating its waters are the main attractions.
Shoppers would be delighted with options from night markets to big malls offering luxurious products.
AirAsia is the only local carrier in the Philippines that flies direct from Manila to Kaohsiung operating with the following schedule:
