April 3rd, 2019
Getting tired of the usual traffic situation in EDSA? And it seems like you just want to up the game and just be extra ’cause wala ka lang mapagkagastusan? Great news! There is now a new ride-sharing experience that you can consider when you have a fight to catch or an important meeting to attend to.
Ascent is a helicopter ride-sharing platform designed for urban air mobility taking passengers to certain locations that you can check on their website.

To do so, we’ve collaborated collaborated closely with the regulators and have applied the highest industry standards to our [curated] partners on the ground and in-flight.”
