Jetstar Asia to fly to Singapore from Clark
Louella Desiderio (The Philippine Star) - August 17, 2017 - 4:00pm

MANILA, Philippines - Singapore-based low-cost carrier Jetstar Asia is set to begin flights to Singapore from Clark in November.

In a statement, Jetstar Asia said it would start the Clark to Singapore service on Nov.28.

Jetstar Asia chief executive officer Bara Pasupathi said the Clark to Singapore service would be its first service from Clark, which is being positioned by the government as the complementary gateway to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

“Low fares travel in the Philippines is booming, and these additional services give another option for direct services to Singapore, Southeast Asia and beyond,” Pasupathi said.

Clark International Airport Corp. president and chief executive officer Alexander Cauguiran said the new service is a welcome development as the government is promoting the Clark Airport given congestion at the NAIA.

“The (CRK-Singapore) flights will definitely boost our operations as we are looking at more travelers who may now choose Clark to fly Jetstar,” he said.

The Clark to Singapore service would be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and provides more than 410,000 seats a year in total capacity between the Philippines and Singapore.

For the new service, Jetstar Asia would utilize the 180-seat Airbus A320.

At present, the Clark International Airport has 134 international flights and 104 domestic flights weekly.

Passenger traffic at the airport is expected to reach 1.5 million by year-end.

Aside from Jetstar Asia, China’s second largest carrier China Eastern Airlines is set to begin its Clark-Shanghai flights on Oct. 18.

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines will also add Tagbilaran, Bacolod and Cagayan de Oro routes from Clark.
