- Philippines AirAsia launched flights between Manila (MNL) and Jakarta (CGK) on 9 January. The carrier will operate the 2,784-kilometre airport pair daily using its fleet of A320s. The route is already well served, with Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airlines also offering daily services. Philippines AirAsia CEO, Captain Dexter Comendador, said of the new service: “AirAsia is a product of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and we are so proud to be part of this region we call home. We are thrilled to add another ASEAN destination into our ever growing network.” With this launch, Philippines AirAsia now serves 17 destinations from Manila, with an 18th to Denpasar launching on 19 January, a route that the carrier will operate four times weekly.
