Manila, Philippines – Following the recent announcement of the Department of Tourism accepting visitors to the island of Boracay beginning 1 October 2020, AirAsia wishes to express its full support and continued cooperation with the local government, civil aviation authorities, as well as global and local health agencies in ensuring that guests enjoy a safe and seamless travel experience with AirAsia.
To celebrate the reopening of Boracay, AirAsia is offering base fares from as low as P8*, SNAP (Flight + Hotel) deals up to 30% off on flights, and 8% off on Boracay Activities using the Promo Code: BORA8, all available at airasia.com for booking from today until 4 October 2020 for travel between 1 October 2020 and 30 June 2021.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said, “The reopening of Boracay is a great step forward in jumpstarting the Philippines’ travel and tourism industry. The overall implementation of this reopening will be the model for the restoration of leisure travel to more domestic destinations. Right now, our goal is to stimulate activity inside local economies by supporting businesses and enterprises heavily affected by the pandemic. That is why we’ve partnered with local hotels to provide amazing combo deals on SNAP, our flight + hotel combo booking platform, which provides our guests with more savings at their convenience.
“As the health and safety of our guests are always a top priority, we will ensure that our stringent protocols are strictly carried out and observed properly by all.”
As the island reopens to tourists from areas under modified and general community quarantine (MGCQ & GCQ), guests bound for Caticlan are reminded of the requirements and precautionary measures to ensure the highest standards of safety are observed throughout their whole journey.
