AirAsia Philippines Spokesperson Steve Dailisan said, “We are banking on “revenge travel” for a very strong 2022 recovery. People now have the confidence to plan for their future trips as reflected in the forward bookings from 31-120 days. This booking behavior can be significantly attributed to the continuing downtrend of daily COVID-19 infections and the ongoing progress of the government’s nationwide vaccination program.”
While travel restrictions have been significantly eased and simplified, we call on our guests to never allow themselves to be complacent. Strict adherence to health and safety protocols must be observed on ground and in flight.”
Recently. Puerto Princesa opened up its door to domestic leisure travelers, adopting a “tourism bubble” scheme. Puerto Princesa started to accept fully vaccinated guests on 8 December. Guests however are required to submit a negative antigen test taken at least 24-hours before departure.
