AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said, 'COVID-19 may have halted a lot of dreams for the time being but at AirAsia we never stopped dreaming big. While we safely work from home, we are taking this time to carefully plan and plot our next moves for the strong return of tourism and air travel.
'I am confident that soon, our collective and concerted efforts will result in the exceeding of pre-pandemic data in terms of tourist arrivals and activity. The warm hospitality, beautiful sceneries, and good food, among others, will surely entice tourists from both home and abroad, to rediscover the beauty of the north.
'AirAsia is in full support of rebooting Luzon's tourism and economic industries through our enhanced digital platform. The airasia super app and airasia.com go beyond flights, and offer a wide range of products and services in partnership with fellow industry stakeholders. We look forward to further supporting the respective Regions as we provide new opportunities for them, as well as affordable and flexible travel options for all our guests.'
Tourism Congress of the Philippines President Jose Clemente III said, 'The Tourism Congress of the Philippines is a community where we can all help one another by supporting each other's industries and businesses. Through this consultative meeting, we hope to be able to provide updates with regards to initiatives and partners such as AirAsia, the Department of Tourism, and the various Regions, as we go forward in our bid to restore tourism in the Philippines.'
