PHILIPPINE budget carrier Airphil Express said its passenger volume more than doubled in the first nine months of the year.

Citing data from the Philippine Civil Aeronautics Board, the airline noted that passenger volume soared by 143% or 1.6 million passengers to 2.72 million during the January-September period compared to 1.12 million in the same period last year.

“We believe this continued expansion and growth of the company is due to the genuine value-added features and services we have been offering to the flying public since the company’s inception in 2010. Since then, we have upped the ante by introducing one of the youngest and most reliable fleets in the region,” said Alfredo Herrera, senior vice president for marketing and sales of Airphil Express.

The Lucio Tan-led carrier has also expanded its routes and is now serving 26 local destinations and two international flights.

Some of its most recently inaugurated local destinations include Manila-Tacloban, Manila-Ozamiz, Davao-Iloilo, Manila-Cotabato, and the Manila-General Santos routes.

Aside from the Manila-Singapore route, Airphil Express now also offers the Cebu-Hong Kong flight, which it opened just a few months ago.
