“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,” AirAsia Philippines CEO, Ricky Isla said.
