Philippines’ AirAsia has announced changes to its routes from Clark International Airport. The low-cost airline will be adding two international routes to Singapore and Taipei, but cancelling routes to Macau and Puerto Princesa (Palawan).
Flights to Singapore will commence on December 1 and flights to Taipei will commence on December 15, 2012.
Commenting on the new international routes, Philippines’ AirAsia CEO Maan Hontiveros said: “”With our two new international routes, we would like to draw in-bound tourist to the country and help contribute to tourism dollar revenues.
“We need to build up routes within an infrastructure that supports low-fare services since we are in an industry that is not immune to rising fuel cost and operational challenges. We intend to open up new international routes within these markets, as well as add frequencies on existing routes, thanks to the aggressive campaign of Department of Tourism in promoting the country abroad.”
Passengers holding tickets on the cancelled flights will be contacted with their options for obtaining a refund.
