DRAGONAIR will begin daily services from Hong Kong to Clark International Airport, effective May 29.
Using an Airbus 320 aircraft with no business-class seats, the flight will be in direct competition with Cebu Pacific, SEAir and AirPhil Express, which already serve the route with lost-cost fares.
“The service is into a destination outside of the traditional gateways Manila and Cebu. By featuring Clark, Dragonair is giving travellers one more destination to choose from,” said Philippine Department of Tourism assistant secretary, Benito Bengzon, Jr.
“Anytime there is a new service to the Philippines, it means more seats for travellers. It is a good development,” he added.
Clark is Dragonair’s second destination in the Philippines. The carrier already flies five times weekly to Manila.
