In a report, AirAsia said Philippines AirAsia reduced by 46 percent its net loss to P3.09 billion in 2015 from P5.76 billion in 2014.

The carrier’s revenues grew 18 percent to P8.93 billion last year from P7.54 billion in 2014.

The growth in revenues was attributed to the uptick in passenger volume which rose 19 percent to 3.59 million in 2015 from the 3.03 million a year earlier.

AirAsia said the airline’s capacity went up three percent to 4.46 million in 2015 from 4.33 million in 2014.
