AirAsia is continuing its growth by adding a new destination from its emerging hub at the Clark International Airport in Pampanga with a new route to Seoul, South Korea.
Starting January 19, the Clark-Seoul (Incheon) service will operate thrice-weekly, adding its second international destination from Clark. Flights from Clark to Seoul will depart every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1750H (5:50PM), while the return flight will depart Seoul at 2325H (11:25PM).
"It is an exciting time for travelers from Metro Manila, Central and Northern Luzon wanting to experience winter in Seoul as we begin to offer new flights from Clark in January," said AirAsia Philippines chief executive officer Dexter Comendador in a statement on Monday, November 19.
From Clark, AirAsia operates international services to both Taipei and Seoul, along with its existing domestic flights to Cebu, Davao, Puerto Princesa, Caticlan (Boracay), Tacloban, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro.
The new service to Clark will join the existing Philippines AirAsia services from Seoul to Manila and Cebu. Other AirAsia network flights to Seoul include Thai AirAsia X's services to Bangkok and AirAsia X's flights to Kuala Lumpur.
