The livery design was unveiled today in a press launch in General Santos City, Philippines attended by AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes and AirAsia Philippines CEO Joy Cañeba.

Tony Fernandes, AirAsia Group CEO said, “It’s a great honor for AirAsia to be chosen as the official airline of team Pacman. Congressman Manny’s story is an inspiration not only for Filipinos but to all of us who dared to dream the seemingly impossible. AirAsia’s commitment in the Philippines is anchored on the same dream, to make flying more affordable, more accessible and to provide the best quality service that every Filipino deserves.”

For his part, Representative Pacquiao said, “I am delighted to be part of AirAsia’s mission in promoting the Philippines, our Filipino talents, sports and tourism wonders to the global stage. Let’s celebrate the Filipino spirit and my team is looking forward to your support in my upcoming match in Macau in November.”
