AirAsia has revived flights from the Clark International Airport to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The carrier said in a statement the new service, using the Malaysian carrier’s flagship AirAsia Berhad, would fly four times a week between Clark and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Clark International Airport Corp. President and CEO Emigdio Tanjuatco III said the return of Air Asia to Clark is more than welcome. Clark Airport has struggled in luring large numbers of passengers, and subsequently, major carriers, due to its distance from Metro Manila.
Mr. Tanjuatco hopes that Air Asia Philippines will transfer its operations to Clark Airport. “I think this is a positive development for Clark Airport. On our part, we will try to keep them satisfied, make sure that all their concerns are addressed and build a better relationship with Air Asia,” he said.
