Manila, 24 February 2014

AirAsia Zest guests bound for Boracay Island from Kalibo International Airport can now enjoy affordable, convenient and seamless connection through Island Transfer Service under AirAsia Zest in partnership with Southwest Tours (Boracay) Incorporated. The new service provides exclusive land and ferry transfers for AirAsia Zest guests arriving at Kalibo International Airport directly to their hotel without the hassle of long queues and irregular public transits.

Boracay Island Transfer Service is now available onboard all AirAsia Zest flights between Manila and Kalibo for only P520 one way, per guest. Upon arrival at the airport, a fully air-conditioned bus will bring guests to Caticlan Jettyport to embark on a ferry ride to the island, in which a vehicle is ready to bring them to their respective hotels located in stations one, two and three only. Additional charges apply for hotels located outside these stations.

Joy Caneba, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of AirAsia Zest said, “Planning a trip to Boracay via AirAsia Zest is now easier and enjoyable. As soon as our guests hop off from the comfort of our Airbus A320s at the airport they would be able to reach their hotel’s front door with ease via comfortable buses and modern fast crafts of our most trusted local one-stop transportation partner, Southwest Tours.”

Cedric Sazon, President of Southwest Tours (Boracay) Incorporated remarked, “Our partnership with AirAsia Zest is part of our continued effort to promote Boracay as a world-class destination, through the airline’s vast regional network, more and more tourists especially those from China, South Korea and Malaysia will now have an easy and hassle-free access to the island.”
