Set to launch is a breakthrough project in the country where Solaire collaborates with Air Asia via its popular Airbus A320, which is scheduled to embark on its first ever flight this month of July. This is a momentous event as Solaire is the first-ever consumer brand to fully wrap and brand a commercial airline, with an underlying thrust of further promoting the Philippine tourism and in the whole of Asia.
Solaire and Air Asia's collaboration is indeed a huge step towards providing modern travel and leisure experiences for its customers, with a fresh approach towards their target market.
