EVA Air plans to add its third destination in the Philippines to its network this spring.
The airline will launch daily nonstop flights between Taipei and Clark International airport in northwestern Philippines from March 30.
The service will be operated by an A321-200 with flight timings as follows:
BR233 Taipei-Clark departs 0900, arrives 1100
BR234 Clark-Taipei departs 1200, arrives 1400
Clark is located northwest of Angeles City in the country’s Pampanga province, and is described by the airline as “a secure area with beautiful scenery, a pleasant climate and numerous resorts”.
Clark International airport is located on the site of the US’ former Clark Air Force Base. After the US Air Force decommissioned the base, the Philippine government repurposed it as a special economic zone.
Located approximately 50 miles from Manila airport, the new service plans to give Filipino passengers an alternative way to fly to Taiwan and connect onward to destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
The new service will complement its existing flights to Manila and Cebu. By the end of March, the airline will operate 35 flights per week to the Philippines.
