LONDON – AirAsia Philippines is set to welcome the ‘Ber’ months with a bang as it ramps up its international destinations in anticipation.

The ‘Ber months’ are the last four months of the calendar year. They are September, October, November and December. In the Philippines, the Ber months are particularly significant because they mark the holiday season.

The Christmas season here officially starts on the first day of September and runs for four consecutive months. It traditionally ends on the sixth of January, Three Kings’ Day.

To celebrate the coming season, AirAsia Philippines is offering deals and promos to entice balikbayans (Filipino ex-pats), overseas Filipino workers and leisure travellers to explore Asean destinations.

Manila to Singapore


Kicking off the ‘Ber’ months is the 20% OFF offering for Manila-Singapore flights for bookings from August 29 to September 4, for travels from September 5, 2022, in time for the Mid-Autumn (Mooncake) Festival, to March 25, 2023.

AirAsia Philippines is also offering Php99 one-way base fares to select AirAsia destinations with its ‘9.9 Early BER Sale’, available for bookings made from 5 to 11 September for travels beginning 5 September 2022 to 25 March 2023.

AirAsia Philippines management statement


AirAsia Philippines Spokesperson and Head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Dailisan said, “AirAsia Philippines is positioning itself to once again dominate the Asian market.”

“Our additional flight frequencies and promos are strategically put in place to help achieve our pre-pandemic figure of more than 2.6 million international seats sold.”

“Additional flights and exciting deals are also our way of boosting international tourist arrivals in the Philippines and other Asian countries we fly to, especially now that we have been observing an improved fuel pricing situation.” 

A range of increased flights


As a further celebration of the ‘Ber’ months, AirAsia Philippines will be increasing its flights frequencies to Denpasar, Indonesia; Bangkok, Thailand; and Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

These routes will increase from thrice-weekly to seven weekly flights by 17 September.  

Manila-Incheon and Cebu- Incheon flights will still continue to fly 5x and 3x weekly respectively. Manila-Singapore flights will also remain at 4x weekly while flights to Hong-Kong and Canton – China will be serviced every Friday.   

“The holidays tied with the ‘Ber’ months are special to Filipinos and other Asian nationalities. AirAsia is about bridging the gap between countries and bringing families closer together,” Dailisan added.
