AirAsia Philippines is gearing up for the end of 2023 with its fifth and final round of cabin crew recruitment. This move aims to cater to the anticipated surge in domestic and international travel in 2024.
For those aspiring to join the ranks of the “World’s Best Cabin Crew,” the opportunity awaits on the 11th of October, Wednesday, at the 3rd Floor, MIAA Function Hall of Manila Airport NAIA Terminal 3.
Successful candidates will gain the chance to embark on exciting journeys to AirAsia’s ever-expanding list of destinations, including 14 domestic and 13 international locations via Manila and Cebu.
Additionally, the Clark and Kalibo hubs are set to reopen soon, further broadening the horizons for the airline’s cabin crew.
Meeting Future Needs
AirAsia Philippines’ CEO, Ricky Isla, is enthusiastic about the airline’s growth prospects, stating, “The horizon is very clear in terms of our growth direction. Our additional manpower will compensate for the expected increase in fleet size next year.”
“Also, the sustained momentum in forward bookings continues to flourish, surpassing our 2019 figures. Our guests can be assured of seamless travels during the Ber months with our group On-Time Performance hitting a high of 90% over the weekend.”
Beyond Cabin Crew Recruitment
Not limited to cabin crew, AirAsia Philippines is also actively recruiting Guest Service (GSA) and Ramp agents. This quarter’s recruitment drive is in addition to the projected 600 new staff who will join the Allstar Team in 2024.
Their role is pivotal in supporting the growth of the airline’s fleet and the reactivation of hubs and other destinations affected by the pandemic.
Highlighting the financial prowess of the AirAsia Group, Capital A, the parent company of AirAsia Philippines, recently secured a five-year term loan facility of up to USD150 million.
This substantial financial backing will be dedicated to aircraft and engine maintenance costs, along with other capital requirements.
“As a group, we are the largest Asean carrier in terms of fleet size. We also fly to 165 destinations in 25 countries worldwide. With the strong backing of our parent company, Capital A, we are bullish that we will be on the right path to market domination in 2024,” Isla further emphasized.
