AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said, “We are pleased to announce our new domestic destination for the year, General Santos. Our General Santos flights will provide access to Mindanao, a beautiful region rich in culture and history. I am confident that AirAsia’s announcement of these new flights will contribute to local tourism and the economy.”
Flights to General Santos city will run three times weekly for flights to and from Clark while Cebu to GenSan flights will run daily.
Zamboanga, known as “Asia’s Latin City” is brimming with natural resources. It’s also an ideal place to experience nature and culture. Interestingly enough, Zamboanga is also known as the country’s “Sardine Capital” as it supplies the majority of the country’s canned sardines.
Despite being a center of trade and commerce, much of Zamboanga’s treasures are preserved. You can expect a rich cultural heritage, serene landscapes, and unspoiled beaches when you head to this city.
