Taiwan’s Starlux Airlines will add a new route connecting its Taipei hub with Clark in the Philippines commencing August 15.
This will be the airline’s third destination in the Philippines following Manila and Cebu.
Flights to Clark will be daily onboard Starlux’s Airbus A321 neo aircraft.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, the outbound flights will depart Taipei at 1725, getting into Clark at 1925. They return an hour later, at 2025, and arrive back in the Taiwanese capital at 2225.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, the outbounds depart at 0745 in the morning, arriving at 0945. The returns are scheduled at 1045, landing back in Taipei at 1245.
Located in the north of the Manila metropolitan area, Clark serves as a secondary airport for the congested capital and the surrounding economic zones.
After launching service to Clark, Starlux will have more than 200 flights a month to and from the Philippines.
Starlux’s A321 neo aircraft used on the Clark route feature eight fully-flat business class seats in a 2-2 configuration alongside a standard economy offering in a 3-3 setup.
Fledgling Starlux currently offers connections to a growing number of destinations across the Asia-Pacific, including Bangkok, Hanoi, Penang, Manila, Sendai, Singapore, Macau and Sapporo.
Last month, the airline launched its first transpacific route – an A350-900 service from Taipei to Los Angeles.
