Grateful for their continued fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, AirAsia is offering medical frontliners free flights to its newest destinations in Mindanao: General Santos and Zamboanga.

AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said, “We express our heartfelt appreciation to our medical professionals who tirelessly soldier on. Much inspiration can be drawn from their courage and commitment. We only hope that these flights are able to assist those that wish to return to their families in Mindanao.”

There are 200 free flights* which are available to doctors, nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists, hospital pharmacists, and hospital orderlies who are in active service and are residing in General Santos or Zamboanga.

Flights are limited and can be booked via a dedicated online form here on a first-come, first-served basis.

Upon filling in the form, medical professionals are required to attach photos of their valid hospital ID, Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) license, and certified proof of attendance during the community quarantine period. Meanwhile, hospital orderlies must attach photos of their valid hospital ID, Certificate of Employment, and proof of attendance during the community quarantine period. Frontliners must also submit a copy of their birth certificate or any proof that they are residing to General Santos and Zamboanga.
