FLAG-CARRIER Philippine Airlines (PAL) will start offering domestic flights at the Clark International Airport (CIA) next month, sources at the PAL head office said last week.
They said “one of the flights is the Clark-Caticlan route.” It’s the most preferred flight to Boracay Island, the country’s premier tourist destination, they added.
PAL will open a ticket office at the Clark airport in Pampanga “within the week or next week,” it was learned but Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) officer-in-charge President and CEO Alexander S. Cauguiran remained mum over the entry of PAL flights.
Cauguiran said earlier that he will exhaust all means to convince PAL, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), Air Asia Philippines and other airlines to operate or increase flight frequency at the Clark airport as pushed by the Duterte government.
Cebu Pacific used to fly to Cebu via the CIA three-times-a-week. It will offer six-times-a-week flights to Cebu starting December 16.
