Seven of 10 Filipinos are still keen on pushing through with planned air travel in the next nine months amid the new surge in COVID-19 cases, according to a survey commissioned by AirAsia Philippines.
The survey, conducted in December 2021, validated AirAsia Philippines’ forecast on the growing optimism and enthusiasm of Filipinos towards travel and increasing confidence in engaging with air transport.
“We are seeing that Filipinos are now much more confident to travel as we as a nation gain a better understanding of the pandemic and develop a more fitting culture of safety and vigilance. At AirAsia, we are observing an uptrend in long-term bookings which signifies a more positive outlook on travel plans this year,” RIcky Isla, chief executive of AirAsia Philippines, said.
“But we are not letting our guards down. We will be consistent in prioritizing the safety and well-being of our guests as they fly to their intended destinations,” he said.
