“During the recent months, we monitored around 20 percent of arriving international guests who are still unable to complete the eTravel requirement prior to their flight, causing long queues at the arrival area. As a mandatory requirement of the Philippine government on safety and security, we would like to highly encourage the compliance of our guests as we promote a seamless customer experience with AirAsia,” AirAsia PH head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Dailisan said.
Air Asia also advised departing international passengers to arrive early for a smooth check-in, security clearance and immigration screening.
The Department of Tourism expects more than 4.8 million tourists to visit the Philippines this year.
