PRworks, AirAsia hold simultaneous familiarization tours
Philippines AirAsia, the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier, has opened new routes from and to Cebu, Davao, Clark, Palawan and Caticlan/Boracay just in time for summer.
“From highlands to islands, AirAsia is officially welcoming summer with new and increased connectivity from Davao and Cebu to Boracay and Palawan and onto to the northern part of the Philippines via Clark Airport in Pampanga,” Captain Gomer Monreal said at the send-off ceremonies at Davao airport grounds.
Aside from twice daily flights between Davao and Cebu, AirAsia also formally opened daily flights from Davao to Boracay; to Palawan at 3x weekly and to Clark at 4x weekly using Airbus A320s or jets which can accommodate up to 180 guests per flight. AirAsia also maintains 3x daily flights between Manila and Davao.
And who were among the first to enjoy the inaugural flights last April 22, 2017? They are journalists, bloggers and social media influencers from Cebu and Davao, along with the PRworks team. The following should give us a sampler of this Summer’s fun.

From Cebu, AirAsia added two new flights to Davao daily, and to Palawan and Boracay via Caticlan daily.
AirAsia launched Cebu – Singapore and Cebu – Taipei in November last year and increased Cebu – Kuala Lumpur flights from three times to four times weekly as part of its commitment to boost tourism in Southern Philippines. The airline is also servicing Cebu – Incheon/Seoul in South Korea.
Flights from Davao to Clark, meanwhile, will officially recommence on April 23 providing Davaoenos access to Northern part of the Philippines via Clark International Airport in Pampanga.
“Clark is the gateway to Baguio, the summer capital of the Philippines, and amazing attractions like surfing in La Union; culinary tours of Pampanga; beach and water sports activities in Pangasinan to eco-adventure in the highlands of the cordilleras and much more await every traveller this summer,” Captain Monreal added.
AirAsia returned to Clark airport in March this year following the launch of Clark-Kalibo operating 3x weekly.

2 nights and a day in Boracay
Verna Luga wrote a three-part blow-by-blow account in her blog about the two nights and a day in Boracay. And you might like to take a quick look at some social media posts of the Caticlan/Boracay group.

Look, Ace Perez made this video of the fun in Boracay.
Hanging out in Baguio
Wow! If you want to spend the rest of summer in Baguio City — the Philippine summer capital — you can now bypass Metro Manila and fly directly to Clark International Airport. Of course, you can also go Subic. But for now, the gang — journalists and bloggers from Davao along with Doris Isubal-Mongaya and Azalea Gabrielle — want to hang out in Baguio.
PRworks coordinates simultaneous fam tours
Thanks Philippines AirAsia for this opportunity to demonstrate again the PRworks capability to coordinate simultaneous familiarization tours in four different Philippine summer destinations.
Mafe Barcelo went with the Davao-Caticlan and Cebu-Caticlan group for a fun time in Boracay. Jesa Maryela was with the Cebu/Davao-Puerto Princesa Group. Van Miñoza of PRworks, Ka Bino Guerrero of the Cebu City government, and Trysha Bautista of Galleon San Pedro guided the Davao-Cebu group. Doris Isubal-Mongaya accompanied the Davao/Cebu-Clark group.
