The announcement was made by AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes at the Davao Investment Conference held at SMX Convention Center in Davao. Mr. Fernandes said “Davao has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first cities we flew to when we started our Philippines operations in 2012. In fact, Clark-Davao, which we pioneered, was one of the two maiden routes when we started AirAsia Philippines five years ago. SInce then, we have worked to strengthen our network in Davao. In this year alone, we have launched new flights from Davao to Cebu, Palawan, and Boracay, and enabled fly-thru via Cebu to international destinations such as Singapore, Taipei and Seoul.

We can’t do it alone and we need airports to share in the responsibility, but together we can make His Excellency President Duterte’s vision of a more prosperous Philippines come true.”
