AirAsia Philippines said Friday that it resumed its thrice-weekly flights service Clark to Kalibo and added more flights from Clark to Caticlan amid “increased demand” for flights to Boracay.

“The thrice-weekly flights from Clark to Kalibo and additional flight from Clark to Caticlan commenced on Oct. 17,” the low-cost carrier said in a statement.

The Clark-Kalibo service was launched in March 2017 and was suspended when Boracay was closed to visitors.

“Our additional services are in response to the increased demand for flights to Boracay, especially this holiday season. Guests can fly from Clark… to either Kalibo or Caticlan, giving them more flexibility and options,” AirAsia Philippines chief executive officer Ricardo P. Isla was quoted as saying in the statement.

“Boracay is a top holiday destination and we are proud to contribute to the region’s reemerging tourism since its closure last year,” he also noted.

AirAsia said it is offering “all-in promotional fares” from P890 for its “BIG Loyalty Members” and P957 for non-members from Clark to Kalibo.

The low-cost carrier also offers P1,090 for “BIG Loyalty Members” and P1,157 for non-members from Clark to Caticlan.

AirAsia said such offers are available on its website,, from Oct. 17 to 27 this year for travel between Dec. 2, 2019 and Jan. 14, 2020. — Arjay L. Balinbin
