Pampanga Press Club at 69

Cebu Pacific Air has finally decided to add more routes at Clark International Airport giving more opportunities to passengers in the North of the Philippines including those in nearby provinces of Metro Manila to fly via Clark.

The Gokongwei-owned carrier will launch the Davao and Tagbilaran (Bohol) flights on October and November and will increase the frequency of their Cebu flight to twice daily at Clark airport.

Cebu Pacific has made Clark as one of its hub for the past several years. Cebu Pacific is the first local carrier to operate at Clark airport through their Clark-Cebu flight. Cebu Pacific is one of the local carriers supporting the development of Clark airport which they believed would change the aviation industry in the country.
Thank you Cebu Pacific for the support and trust in the viability of the Clark airport, we hope seeing more destinations in the coming years..

Locators have urged government to develop CRK

The Clark Investors and Locators has repeatedly called for the full development of Clark airport to prevent such incidents at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport where a Xiamen Airlines skidded off at the runway of the congested airport affecting airport operations and more than 5,000 passengers in both the domestic and international flights.

There are about 1,000 foreign and local companies operating at the Clark Freeport and they want the government to fast track the development of Clark airport to prevent future incidents.

“The incident should convince both the public and private sector that the full development of Clark airport should be fasttracked as it remains the best alternative to NAIA,” the statement said.

“I most definitely agree with them, as we have no more time wherein the government must act immediately to prevent the repeat of such incidents as Clark airport is the best alternative,” said CILA chairman Bong Alvaro who also urged the government to act immediately and continue the construction of the second Passenger Terminal for Clark Airport.

“I hope and pray, the government would listen to the call of the private sector, as the entire country will benefit from the development of Clark airport.”
