Cebu Pacific uses Clark as a hub

11 Sep 2008 by Ciprian Hirlea

Cebu Pacific becomes the third airline to operate international flights out of the Philippines’ Diosdado Macapagal International airport (DMIA) in Clark, Pampanga on November 9. Tiger Airways and Air Asia also use the facility to link Singapore, Malaysia and other destinations around the region to the archipelago.

Young domestic carrier South East Asian Airlines (SeaAir) likewise flies out from DMIA.

Cebu Pacific will deploy an Airbus A319 aircraft to Clark. This will fly daily to Hongkong and Singapore; four times weekly to Macau; and three times weekly to Bangkok. Daily Cebu-Clark flights, using an ATR 72-500 aircraft, started up on October 1.

DMIA is situated in the Clark Aviation Complex, covering a 2,500-hectare area with a 3,200-metre runway. It is part of the sprawling 33,653-hectare Clark Field, a former American airbase that has been converted into the Clark Special Economic Zone.

The airport is approximately one hour’s drive away from the Philippine capital Manila.
