PAL adds 4 new routes from Clark
Philippine Airlines is launching four new destinations out of its hub at Clark International Airport in Pampanga.
The inauguration of Bacolod, Tagbilaran, Cagayan de Oro and Virac in Catanduanes routes represents a significant investment by PAL in the development of Clark Airport as a major airline gateway.
PAL’s Clark hub now provides passengers from central and northern Luzon direct access to a total of 13 domestic points as well as to Seoul, South Korea.
The Lucio Tan-led airline just launched a four times weekly service to Bacolod and daily flights to Tagbilaran in Bohol and a three times weekly service to Cagayan de Oro.
PAL is using the 199-seater Airbus A321 on the flights to Bacolod and Cagayan de Oro, and the 156-seater A320 to Tagbilaran.
Starting Dec. 18, PAL will mount three times weekly flights to Virac, capital of the island province of Catanduanes, leaving Clark Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Bombardier Q400 will be used on the Clark-Virac-Clark route.
PAL flies to nine domestic destinations out of Clark: Basco, Busuanga, Calbayog, Catarman, Caticlan, Cebu, Davao, Masbate and Puerto Princesa.
