MANILA — Grateful to the Philippines’ gallant medical front-liners, AirAsia will be providing a thousand (1,000) free domestic flights this Independence Day to medical practitioners and healthcare providers who are at the forefront of the country’s fight against COVID-19.

AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said: “We would like to express our gratitude to our healthcare professionals who selflessly serve the country. We wish to help our front-liners return to their loved ones swiftly and safely with the easing of community quarantine restrictions in the country.”

The free flights* are available** to doctors, nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists, hospital pharmacists, and hospital orderlies to fly to any AirAsia domestic destination in the Philippines.
