Qatar Airways flight to Clark gets high passenger demand

Aviation Updates Philippines - Qatar Airways' daily flights from Doha, Qatar to Clark, Philippines got high demand on passengers. Qatar Airways launched it's first flight to Clark last November 2013 utilizing it's 284-seater Airbus A330 aircraft.

Emirates had stopped servicing Clark last May 3 after the airline observed low demand of passengers. This leaves Qatar Airways the only airline to operate long-haul flights. 

Clark International Airport's President, Victor Luciano, said that passengers from Doha are slowly increasing in number. He also said that some flights were already fully booked. Passengers that live in the north of Manila prefer Clark as there is less traffic. Bus companies regularly serve Clark Airport to Trinona Mall and Resorts World Manila route. 

Qatar Airways had planned to add flights to Clark bringing it to 14 weekly flights, but the Civil Aeronautics Board had rejected it as the current bilateral market does not yet warrant the opening of new frequencies from both cities.

An increasing number of employments to the cities of Qatar and Abu Dhabi usually flies with Qatar Airways' Doha-Clark route. 

Several airlines are also operating from Clark airport which passengers can connect with. These are Asiana Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Dragonair, Jin Air, Tigerair (Singapore) and Tigerair Philippines.
