Clark International Airport
Passenger volume using the Clark International Airport in Pampanga rose 38 percent year-on-year to 160,847 in the first two months of 2012. Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) president Victor Jose I. Luciano said this clearly shows Clark is becoming the airport of choice for international passengers.
Passenger traffic at Clark is expected to rise further with the operation of three more budget airlines. AirAsia Philippines, a subsidiary of Malaysia’s Air Asia Berhad, will launch domestic flights to Davao and Kalibo from its hub at the Clark airport on 28th March.
Airphil Express will also launch maiden flights to Cebu, Puerto Princesa, Davao and Kalibo also from Clark on 29th March. South East Asian Airlines (Seair) is set to fly to Kalibo as well as to international destinations such as Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Bangkok in May.
Mr. Luciano said the operation of more flights this year would enable the facility to serve close to a million passengers, up from 730,000 passengers in 2011.
