AirAsia will once again fly from Clark International Airport in Pampanga to Kalibo (Boracay) three times a week starting next month, on March, 27, the airline  announced.

“We are reaffirming our commitment to make air travel more affordable, convenient and accessible to all with our newest Clark-Kalibo route,” announced Philippines AirAsia CEO Captain Dexter Comendador. Hence, “We are connecting travelers from Central and Northern Luzon.”

AirAsia launched commercial flights from Clark in 2012 before transferring its hub to Metro Manila following a strategic partnership with a local carrier in 2013.

Since then, the airline has been operating on a much larger scale from Metro Manila and expanded its domestic and international network with flights from hubs in Cebu and Kalibo.

To celebrate its return to Clark, AirAsia is offering promo fares to Boracay (via Kalibo) from R699, all-in, until February 5 at for travel period between March 27 to November 30, 2017.

Philippines AirAsia is a wholly owned subsidiary of AirAsia, Inc. which is a joint venture company among Filipino investors Antonio O. Cojuangco, former Ambassador Alfredo M. Yao, Michael L. Romero, Marianne B. Hontiveros, and Malaysia’s AirAsia Berhad.

PAA operates a fleet of 14 aircraft with domestic and international flights out of hubs in Manila, Cebu and Kalibo.  The airline operates several flights to/from Manila, Davao, Cebu, Kalibo (Boracay), Tacloban, Tagbilaran (Bohol), Puerto Princesa (Palawan) and Clark in the Philippines with international flights to and from Shanghai, Taipei, Incheon (Seoul), Hong Kong, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, and Singapore.

The airline is part of the AirAsia Group that has been awarded the World’s Best Low-Cost Carrier for eight consecutive years running by Skytrax since 2009 to 2016.
