PAL to launch flights from Clark airport

Legacy carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) is beefing up its international network out of the recently-redeveloped Clark International Airport (CRK).

President and COO Captain Stanley K. Ng said the carrier will introduce services from Clark to Hong Kong, Seoul, and Busan within the fourth quarter of the year.

Ng said the four times per week Clark-Busan route will start on November 10, while the daily Clark-Seoul (Incheon) service will commence a day after.

The thrice weekly seasonal service between Clark and Hong Kong will be launched 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. 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,” Ng said.

PAL will deploy the 199-seater Airbus A321 aircraft for these flights, offering business class and economy class cabins.

The legacy carrier announced last week that it is investing in a carbon reduction program that will enable it to attain net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Ng said the initiative is part of the flag carrier’s commitment to supporting international agreements for climate action, including the Paris Agreement and the Glasgow Climate Pact.

“Our net zero initiative comes at a crucial time for the international aviation industry, which is seeking to further lessen its environmental impact in response to the global scientific community’s clarion call against irreversible climate change,” he said.

As such, PAL is “is investing in an all-out carbon reduction program as part of a multi-year commitment to combat the worldwide scourge of climate change.”
