Summer is here!  As for me and my little guy, summer vacation from school already started yesterday. So when hubby and I were invited to attend the launching event by the low cost carrier, AirAsia here in Davao City last March 9, we were excited to check out their new flights to summer destinations in the country flying from Davao City. Hopefully we can book cheap flights to one of those destinations since my boys and I have almost five months of long summer vacation ahead of us this year. Of course hubby has to plan it out well since he has work. Hubby was lucky to win a round trip ticket to Korea during the event! He still has to get the ticket in his hands. We’re somehow hoping and wishing in our hearts that Santa would consider giving two round trip tickets from Davao to a local summer destination instead for my coming birthday so the three of us can travel as a family (*wink*) though that trip to Korea for hubby is also exciting to think about.

Also, we are excited with the news of their Red Hot Sale to avail of their lowest fares to book to a local summer destination. The sale will start on Monday, March 13, 2017 from 12:01am!  Mark that date friends!


Read on below to know more about the launching event and their new flights from Davao to those exciting summer destinations to travel to with family, friends, barkada or even as a solo backpacker…
