CLARK FREEPORT – AirAsia, the World’s Best Low Cost Car­rier, 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 trav­ellers 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 cel ebr at e 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 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 neigh­bour­ing 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.
