MANILA, Philippines - AirAsia Inc. signed a memorandum of agreement with Philippine Association of Manpower Agencies for Malaysia Affiliates, Inc. (PAMAMA) to offer low-cost tickets to Filipino workers in Malaysia.

The agreement was signed by AirAsia Inc. CEO Maan Hontiveros, PAMAMA Chairman Cristina Edquiban and PAMAMA President Salavador Curameng.

Under the agreement, AirAsia will be the preferred carrier of OFWs deployed by PAMAMA to Malaysia.

"This partnership affirms our commitment to provide low cost travel to Filipinos especially for our overseas workers while ensuring that they enjoy only the best quality service from us," Hontiveros said.

Philippines’ AirAsia launched its first international flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in June. The daily route complements Malaysia AirAsia’s existing Kuala Lumpur – Clark-Kuala Lumpur morning flights which have been in operation since 2005.
