AirAsia Philippines Highlights the Importance of Innovative and Sustainable Aviation in Tourism

AirAsia believes that the Philippines, being a premier destination for nature and experiential tourism has the opportunity to grow more in terms of tourist arrivals, as the recent pandemic allowed destinations to rest, recover, and flourish.  

However, responsibility for environmental protection and sustainability lies on all stakeholders, including airline companies who contribute over 2% of the global CO2 emission.  It is for this reason that AirAsia Philippines acknowledges the importance of doubling efforts to lessen carbon emission and fast track the use of SAF among other measures to lessen carbon footprint.

Speaking before other stakeholders in the 2024 Philippine Tourism and Hotel Investment Summit, AirAsia Philippine CEO Ricky Isla pointed out that technological infrastructure development, policies, regulations, investment opportunities, and technical capabilities for SAF are still in their early stages here in the Philippines. 

Zero program which aims to use SAF throughout the whole group to include the Philippines, from a low of 2% or 40.62 tonnes next year (2025) to a maximum of 70% (1.90 million tonnes) by 2050.

Looking ahead, we remain committed to raising the sustainability bar. Among others, we will be pursuing regulatory approvals for CORSIA offset management, regional expansion of our aviation sustainability campaign, and incorporating renewable energy at ADE's maintenance facilities. At AirAsia Foundation, we look forward to expanding our partnerships for sustainable travel”, Mr. Isla stressed.

In the meantime, AirAsia Philippines has taken up several measures to ensure its proactive actions towards sustainability such as Fleet Management or the utilization of more efficient aircraft such as the A321neo, optimization of aircraft operation or Green Flight Operations. AirAsia has also ventured on small steps to promote sustainability in all of its flights. Mr. Isla said they encourage guests to bring reusable flasks, coffee cups, and even utensils onboard. 

The AirAsia chief also noted that collaboration between airline operators and other stakeholders is a very important key especially in creating awareness among travelers. 

Meanwhile, AirAsia Philippines welcomes the Civil Aeronautics Board’s (CAB) decision to lower the Fuel Surcharge from Level 6 to a notch down at Level 5 for the month of July.


Over the past five months, Fuel Surcharge remained at a high of Level 6. The reduction to Level 5 next month means that guests can now anticipate lower fees ranging from PHP 151.00 to PHP 542.00 for domestic flights and between PHP498.03 to PHP3,703.11 for international flights, depending on the destination.


AirAsia Philippines, being the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline for an uninterrupted 14 years, remains committed to cushion the impact of the Fuel Surcharge by offering our guests with the lowest fares such as our monthly Double Digit Sale and Flash Sale.  These and other exciting offerings via the AirAsia MOVE App and airasia.com are designed to entice more guests to fulfill their travel goals towards the end of 2024.

John Woo returns with a gritty revenge tale of a tormented father in Silent Night


 

Acclaimed action director John Woo returns with a gritty revenge tale of a tormented father in Silent Night, now streaming on Lionsgate Play. Full of Woo’s signature “bullet ballet” style, the movie redefines the action genre with visceral, thrill-a-minute storytelling sans dialogues. 


Silent Night is a quiet tale that unfolds from tragedy: on the night before Christmas, a young boy dies after being struck by a stray bullet amidst a gang gunfight. Brian Godlock (Joel Kinnaman), the child’s father, immediately hunts down and successfully locates a handful of the culprits. However, his confrontation with the gang leader, Playa (Harold Torres), leaves him severely wounded and on the brink of death. 

 

Brian survives, but he loses the ability to speak, along with his will to live. This burdens his wife, Saya (Catalina Sandino), who struggles to tend to her husband’s despair while also grieving the loss of her son on her own terms. When she finally gives up and decides to leave their home, Brian finds the motivation he needs to keep going: vengeance. 

 

On how he approached storytelling without dialogue, Woo explains: “Making a film without dialogue is more difficult. It’s not an easy job to do. You have to think more than usual. You need to find new ways, new styles, and a very unique language to tell the story. Unique visual language to tell the story. The sound, the vision. Using the vision instead of the language. It’s not easy work. It needs a lot of thought.” 

 

On what it was like working with Woo, lead actor Joel Kinnaman shared: John is not just an iconic film director. He is the master of the camera. I’ve never worked with a film director that can tell so much of the story just in the way that he moves the camera. And I can also tell and understand why he wanted to do this film that doesn't have dialogue because it just opens up so many opportunities to design these beautiful shots, and instead of just shooting this scene where you have the coverage, closeups, mediums shots, wide shot and then you cut it all together, here we’re very sparse with the coverage. A lot of the scenes are just one or two setups. And you tell the whole scene in how we stage it and how the camera moves. It’s gonna be a very artistic film.”

Home Credit Wais Tips to help moms get a head start on back-to-school preparations

As the back-to-school season approaches, moms everywhere are gearing up to ensure their children have everything they need for a successful school year. With the Department of Education (DepEd) mandating the start of the next academic year for preschool through senior high school on July 29, and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) yet to announce the opening of classes for college, it's crucial to begin preparations early. From purchasing school supplies and uniforms to updating gadgets and creating an organized study space, there’s a lot to be done to prepare for the opening of the school year. So, where do you start planning? 

Here are some wais tips, as listed by Home Credit Philippines, the country’s leading consumer finance company, to help moms get a head start on back-to-school preparations: 

Create a back-to-school checklist. Before diving into shopping, make a comprehensive list of everything your child will need. This includes school supplies, uniforms, gadgets, and even snacks. A well-organized checklist will ensure you don't miss out on any essentials and can help you budget effectively. 

Prepare a budget. Now that you have your checklist, it's crucial to set a budget to manage your expenses this back-to-school season. This will help you prioritize the most important items and avoid overspending so you won't strain your finances. 
Upgrade student’s study space. Since the pandemic and the changing weather conditions, schools have implemented remote learning arrangements where students can study at home. With these arrangements, a dedicated study area becomes vital for their learning. To upgrade this study space, choose a quiet, well-lit corner of your home and equip it with necessary supplies such as a comfortable chair, desk, and adequate lighting. Personalized touches like motivational posters or a calendar can also boost a student’s enthusiasm for learning. 

Update Gadgets and Tech. In today’s digital age, having the right gadgets is crucial for a seamless learning experience. While you may have purchased devices to meet your kids’ remote learning needs a few years ago, it's now time to consider upgrading these gadgets to keep up with advancing technology and ensure that they have the best tools for their education. 

Fortunately, Home Credit Philippines is here to support moms with its Back-to-School (BTS) promo!
