CLARK FREEPORT -- AirAsia continues to expand its domestic network in Clark Airport in Pampanga with new flights between Clark and Cebu starting May 11, 2018.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said their commitment is to make air travel more affordable, convenient and accessible to travelers especially outside Metro Manila with “superb service and signature low fares.”
“We are thrilled to be painting Clark and Cebu skies red with introductory fares now up for grabs from as low as P17 only!”
To celebrate AirAsia’s newest flight, “all-in promo fares for Clark to Davao are now available from as low as P17.00, one-way fare only, until 22 April 2018 at www.airasia.com for travel period between 11 May 2018 and 26 October 2018,” he said.
At a recent Philippine Economic Briefing 2018, the Philippine government has envisioned the New Clark City to be a hub of agro-industrial activities, cutting-edge technology and logistics companies and government centers with world-class sports facilities.
Alongside this development, Clark International Airport (CIA) will have a new terminal building to accommodate a projected 8 million passengers per year and a new railway system connecting to Manila and neighboring provinces.
The expansion of CIA according to government transport authorities will help decongest Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila. The expansion project for the Clark airport broke ground last December.
“AirAsia is here to support the government’s flagship projects to boost tourism and trade. We aim to better connect Clark to secondary cities within the Philippines like Iloilo, Davao, Tacloban and Cebu followed by inter-Asean connectivity where the AirAsia Group has massive network covering over 120 destinations in the whole of Asean, in greater Asia, Australia, United States and beyond,” Comendador added.
Aside from Clark-Cebu route, AirAsia also offers several flights to and from Clark, Iloilo, Davao, and Puerto Princesa.
AirAsia launched its first commercial flights from Clark with only two planes in March 2012 before transferring its hub to Metro Manila following a strategic partnership with a local carrier in 2013.
AirAsia has since been operating on a much larger scale with a fleet of 20 aircraft from Metro Manila and has expanded its domestic and international network with flights from hubs in Manila, Cebu, Clark and Kalibo.
