Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 21 March 2005

AirAsia is to commence flights to Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (formerly Clark Angeles Airport) near Manila in the Philippines, beginning 5th April 2005. Daily flights for this new service will be operated simultaneously out of 2 points in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Kota Kinabalu International Airport, in Sabah, Borneo island.

“We are pleased to commence flights to Clark Field, Philippines from two of the most prestige destinations in Malaysia. We aim to provide more connections for the people of Philippines to visit Malaysia, and to enhance the hub status of Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. By connecting Clark to Malaysia and linking it to our network of flights serving Thailand, Indonesia, and Macau, AirAsia is indirectly bringing the people of ASEAN closer and thus one step nearer to achieve a borderless ASEAN policy” said Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia Berhad.

Fares for these destinations are as follows:
Kuala Lumpur – Clark from RM129.99 / 1949 peso one way
Kota Kinabalu – Clark from RM 119.99 / 1799 peso one way

A former U.S military air base located in the Clark Special Economic Zone, Diosdado Macapagal International Airport is approximately 80 km north of Manila. AirAsia will provide a connection between Clark and Manila with specially arranged busses that are scheduled to coincide with AirAsia’s flight arrivals.
