Flag carrier Philippine Airlines is launching a network of international routes linking Clark International Airport to Seoul and Busan in South Korea as well as Hong Kong.

According to a news release, the Clark-Korea service commenced this month, with PAL operating regular daily flights from Clark to Seoul Incheon starting November 11, along with four weekly flights from Clark to Busan starting November 10.

Hong Kong will join PAL’s Clark network in December, with the flag carrier mounting a thrice weekly seasonal service from CRK to Hong Kong commencing on December 9.

“Clark is on the rise, as Philippine Airlines forges new connections to the business and tourist markets of Hong Kong and Korea,” said PAL president and COO Capt. Stanley Ng.

“We are happy to mount international flights out of Clark International Airport, which will help bring greater flows of tourists and economic activity to the Central Luzon region and offer the convenience of nonstop flights to Hong Kong, Seoul and Busan for our passengers residing in the northern parts of the Philippines,” he said.

“Travelers will enjoy the spacious Clark New Terminal, the country’s latest world-class airport gateway,” Ng added.

Noel Manakil, Chief Executive Officer of Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corp (LIPAD), operator and manager of Clark International Airport said: “This is good news to all passengers waiting to book these destinations from CRK.”

“We are happy to welcome Philippine Airlines’ flights to Incheon and Busan, South Korea, and even more excited to be the gateway to your Hong Kong holidays soon,” he said.

“We hope passengers will take advantage of these opportunities and enjoy a hassle-free passenger experience here at Clark International Airport,” Manakil said.
