The announcement of the company of its newest flights to Zamboanga comes hot on the heels of the announcement of its new flights to General Santos.

Back in 2015 and 2018, AirAsia started operating in Davao and Cagayan de Oro respectively.

“We are pleased to announce our new domestic destination, Zamboanga,” said the CEO of AirAsia Philippines Ricky Isla. “Our newest route cements AirAsia’s connections amongst the country’s major islands: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.”

This action from the AirAsia, according to him, is in support of the program of the Department of Tourism to make tourism in the Philippines livelier. Moreover, it is also aligned with the campaign of the department, “It’s More Fun in the Philippines.”

For the uninitiated, Zamboanga is located at the southernmost tip of the Zamboanga Peninsula. It was where Spaniards settled way back the colonial era. As such, even at present, Hispanic influences are still evident in an array of structures in the place, thus its moniker “Asia’s Latin City.”

What makes the place interesting is that it touts unspoiled beaches, serene landscapes, as well as cultural heritage. As such, it has attracted over 700,000 tourists in 2018.

Because of the region’s vast natural resources, Zamboanga has become a commercial as well as an industrial center for trade and commerce.
