Clark airport soars

Mar 30, 2017

UP, UP the blue yonder in the aviation industry.

The Clark International Airport, apparently, had never it so good. Consider:

The nation’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines committed to set up its additional hub in Clark in two years’ time.

This, as it launched – from Clark -- one flight after the other to local destinations Cebu, Davao, Caticlan, Busuanga, Kalibo and Puerto Princesa, and international destination Incheon in Korea.

PAL too is seriously in consideration of opening Clark flights to the West Coast of good old US of A, specifically, Los Angeles in California.

Philippines AirAsia returning to Clark this week with regular fl ights to Kalibo and to Davao in April.

Southeast Asian International Airlines opening regular flights between Clark and seven destinations in China, Koror in the Republic of Palau.

Daily to Beijing and Koror, SEAIR will have twice-weekly flights between Clark and Kunming in Yunan province, Nanning in Guangxi, Changsha in Human, Ningbo and Wenzhou in Zhejiang, Wuhan in Hubei, and Hefei in Anhui.

Then there will also be the launch – on May 17 – of the flight from Clark to Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya by Wakay Air, for tourists to have an easy access to the Banawe Rice Terraces.

Cebu Pacific, of course, has maintained a high presence at Clark with flights to Cebu, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.

Aseana and Jin Air remains bullish with their flights to Incheon, Korea; Cathay Dragon to Hong Kong; Emirates to Dubai; Qatar Air to its Doha.

Yes, the Clark airport never had it so good – in number of flights, at least. Not without, apparently, Alexander Sangalang Cauguiran at the helm of the Clark International Airport Corp.

And Cauguiran has yet to receive his signed official appointment from President Duterte, at that!
