Air Asia Philippines plans to add more flights to key cities in Japan as a part of its overseas expansion.

“After Osaka, we are building additional muscle in other key cities of Japan, namely Tokyo and Narita,” AirAsia Philippines chief executive Ricardo Isla said.

Air Asia Philippines mounted daily services from Manila to Osaka on July 1.  It flies to 13 international destinations from Manila, including Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Bangkok, Bali, Seoul, Taipei, Kaohsiung, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Macau and Ho Chi Minh City.

The airline operates several flights to and from Manila, Davao, Cebu, Kalibo, Caticlan (Boracay), Tacloban, Tagbilaran (Bohol), Puerto Princesa (Palawan), Clark and Iloilo.

The company plans to expand its fleet from 23 to 50 aircraft with the next three years.
