Philippine Airlines’ first flight back to Clark from Seoul Incheon arrived at 02:14 on 2 January acording to Flightradar24.com. This is the Philippine national carrier’s first international route from Clark. However, Asiana Airlines and Jin Air both already operate between the same two airports.
- Philippine Airlines has introduced its first international route from Clark (CRK) in the Philippines. On 1 January the national carrier began daily flights to and from Seoul Incheon (ICN) using its 199-seat A321s. The first flight from Seoul departed late on 1 January arriving in Clark early on 2 January, with the first departure from Clark later that day. Competition on the 2,543-kilometre route comes from Asiana Airlines and Jin Air which both operate the airport pairing with daily flights. Philippine Airlines President Jamie Bautista said: “We will operate more flights outside of Manila not just to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) but mainly to offer convenience to passengers who do not need to travel to Manila for their desired flights.” Philippine Airlines already operates domestic flights to Caticlan from Clark with additional domestic routes being added in the coming weeks.
