Philippine Airlines is ramping up its operations at Clark International Airport, north of Manila.
The national carrier is aiming to ease pressure at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport by launching new services connecting Clark with Cebu, Davao and Puerto Princesa. Clark is located approximately 80km from the Philippine capital.
Having launched flights between Clark and Boracay in late 2016, PAL will launch four weekly Clark-Cebu flights and three weekly Clark-Davao services on 30 January 2017. Then on 26 March PAL will start offering three weekly flights between Clark and Puerto Princesa, on the island of Palawan.
“We aim to cater to the flight needs of northern Metro Manila, central and northern Luzon residents. Now, they will be able to experience the convenience of easy travel from their homes to the Clark Airport. Travellers from abroad and domestic outlying stations may fly to Clark and journey on to popular travel spots in the Luzon area,” stated PAL’s president & chief operating officer, Jaime Bautista.
PAL will continue to serve Cebu, Davao and Puerto Princesa from Manila’s main airport.
