Malaysian Low Cost Carrier Air Asia Berhad (AXM) has flown its inaugural flight to Davao (AK590) on December 21 last week without much funfare arriving at 2:25pm from Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur.
The new route between Davao and Kuala Lumpur will operate four times weekly with 180 seater A320 aircraft.
The route is the airlines third gateway from the Philippines to Malaysia after Manila, and Cebu after it discontinued connections to Kalibo this week.
Meanwhile, the airline's susidiary, AirAsia Philippines also connects guests to other cities in the Philippines including Clark, Manila, Caticlan, Kalibo, Tacloban, Palawan, Cebu and Tagbilaran.
Kuala Lumpur is Davao's second international point after Singapore.
