MANILA – AirAsia is now flying from Manila to Kaohsiung in Taiwan.

The budget airline launched its inaugural flight from Terminal 3 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport to Kaohsiung International Airport, Taiwan’s second busiest airport, last October 30.

“AirAsia is thrilled to add Manila-Kaohsiung to our growing list of exciting places to visit in Taiwan. With AirAsia’s unparalleled low fares and visa-free access to Taiwan for Filipinos, now is the best time to explore this massive port city and home to skyscrapers, shopping malls, night markets, parks, and historical and natural wonders,” AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said in a statement.

AirAsia flies from Manila to Kaohsiung every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

The budget carrier also has flights to Taipei from Manila, Clark, and Cebu.
