In a time when more and more people are switching to their smart devices for contents, AirAsia, voted the world’s best low cost carrier for eight consecutive years by Skytrax, is taking travel show on a next level by launching a 6-part web series featuring some of Asia’s best-kept attractions, rich cultural heritage, and inside stories about people and the airline that broke travel norms and made flying possible for everyone across Asia and beyond.
“Red Talks with Daphne,” is an online show hosted by lifestyle host Daphne Osefia-Paez as she takes viewers to different places while giving her piece about traveling, flying, helping and inspiring communities.
The web series begins with Destination: Dream (The Man with the Red Cap). It takes viewers to AirAsia’s massive headquarters in Kuala Lumpur where Daphne and AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes talk about the airline’s humble beginning and the exciting times for air travelers in the future.
The second episode titled Destination: Fly is an inside look on what it takes to be an AirAsia cabin crew and how their journeys and training earned them the distinct recognition of being world-class in a highly demanding job and environment.
Destination: Good (The Silversmiths of Arkomjogja), meanwhile, tells the story of architects and silversmiths in Jogjakarta, Indonesia. This third episode highlights the work of the AirAsia Foundation in keeping these ancient traditions alive.
Episode Four is called Destination Unity. It talks about ASEAN as a single market destination and how AirAsia is making it more convenient, more affordable, more fun and more exciting to travel around thousands of islands and the challenges of connecting people, places, and empowering communities.
Destination: Harmony (The role of Business in environmental protection) goes to Palawan. In this fifth episode, Daphne talks about pearl production and delves into the
ongoing campaign to protect Palawan’s marine biodiversity through responsible eco’ tourism.
The Finale, titled Destination: Freedom (A tribute to travelers from all walks of life), brings viewers to Shanghai, China in a story of adventure, thrill, and excitement.
Red Talks With Daphne was made possible by the AirAsia Foundation, the AirAsia BIG Loyalty winning loyalty Programme, Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta, Flower Island Resort Palawan and Jewelmer.
