The low fare airline unit of the Lucio Tan group said it would add four new routes to and from Clark next month.
Airphil Express said that the new additional routes are from Clark to Davao, Cebu, Kalibo and Puerto Prinsesa, and the same brings the total number of Airphil Express’s daily scheduled trips to 32 local destinations.
“With its highly improved road network and increasing flights, Clark is setting out to become a natural entry point to major tourist destinations and a major hub for business and tourism in the country,” said Alfredo Herrera, senior vice president for Sales and Marketing of low fare airline Airphil Express.
“Aside from being a major part of the company’s growth plans this year, one other reason why we have decided to offer flights from Clark is so we may bring our services closer to people in Pampanga and the nearby areas.
It goes hand in hand with our commitment to help spur growth for the country’s economy via the promotion of local tourism in the area,” he said.
In line with its new routes, Airphil Express is also continuously expanding its fleet.
Early this year, the company added three 180-seater Airbus A320s, which can fly at longer flight distances with lesser fuel consumption.
This brings the total number of Airphil Express aircraft to 11 Airbus 320s, three Q300s and five Q400s.
Today, traveling on Airphil Express is comfortable and safe with its young and reliable fleet of Airbus A320, Q300 and Q400 aircrafts.
Besides operating in 32 local destinations throughout the country, Airphil Express also serves the Manila-Singapore and Cebu-Hong Kong international routes. (PNA/lgi/DGA/utb)
