After the headache that the incident at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport caused over the weekend, travelers (and even our lawmakers) are now exploring other options to fly in and out of Metro Manila. It's a good thing that commercial airlines are now opening more domestic and international flights through the Clark International Airport in Mabalacat, Pampanga, such as Cebu Pacific's newest Manila-Tagbilaran (Bohol) and Manila-Davao routes. The daily flights start on November 9 with 5J613 leaving Clark for Tagbilaran at 9:55 a.m. and 5J614 departing from Tagbilaran at 11:50 a.m; and 5J985 leaving Clark for Davao at 1:45 p.m. and 5J986 departing from Davao at 4:10 p.m.
The low-cost airline is launching this with a seat sale (of course!) where base fare starts at P599. Sale period is from August 23 to 28 and travel period is from November 9 to March 30, 2019. Year-round base fares, on the other hand, start at P888 for Clark-Tagbilaran and P1,088 for Clark-Davao. That's not so bad even if you're from Metro Manila, especially now that getting to Clark isÂas easy as riding a P2P bus from Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 and Resorts World Manila in Pasay City, Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas, and Trinoma in Quezon City. Bus fare ranges from P250 (from Quezon City) to P350 (from Pasay City).
The airline is also expected to add two more flights per day to its Clark-Cebu route starting on October 28.
