- Jetstar Asia commenced services on a new route from Singapore (SIN) to Clark (CRK) on 28 November. The Singapore-based LCC will operate the 2,380-kilometre link three times per week with A320s. It faces direct competition from incumbent carriers Cebu Pacific Air and Scoot. Clark is the second destination to be served by Jetstar Asia in the Philippines, with the carrier already operating to Manila. “Low fare carriers like Jetstar have been operating in the Philippines for many years and have changed how often and the way people travel,” said Bara Pasupathi, CEO Jetstar Asia. “The accessibility afforded to travellers has also opened up new destinations that they may never
have previously considered.” Alexander Cauguiran, president and CEO of Clark International Airport Corp (CIAC) welcomed the new route saying that Jetstar’s decision to launch flights at Clark recognises the airport’s marketability and its increasing number of local destinations.
