AirAsia Incorporated, the Philippine-based affiliate of AirAsia Group, has chosen Clark as its hub in the country.
The airline, which announced its set up last December, will be basing its operations at Clark’s Diosdado Macapagal International Airport. It plans to start operating international flights from the airport in the fourth quarter of this year.
“Our choice of Clark underlines the airline’s commitment to developing transportation and tourism hubs outside Manila,” says Marianne Hontiveros, chief executive of AirAsia, Inc.
“We plan to make Clark the hub for flights to popular destinations including Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Korea and Japan. Travel will become much easier and more affordable for tourists and overseas Filipino workers.”
