MANILA -- Budget airline AirPhil Express will open its 28th domestic destination in Zamboanga City this October.

“We are pleased at the addition of Zamboanga into our network, as our services here allows us to add yet another hub of commerce and trade into our ever-expanding network,” said Bettina de Vera, corporate communications manager at AirPhil Express.

She added that the airline will use a brand new 180-seater Airbus 320 for its Zamboanga destination, on top of the nine planes that service other areas.

“This is the new A320 route announced just in a span of five months," said de Vera.

AirPhil Express said it will add more daily flight services in December. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
