NAIA vs MIA: Warfare between Names
The opening of San Vicente, Palawan routes has led to the Philippine Airlines (PAL) to offer flights for as low as eight hundred nineteen pesos (P819). The airline launched three new routes out of Clark, one of which flies to the growing tourist town of San Vicente.
The aviation and tourism industries see San Vicente, Palawan as the next Boracay, which is why PAL expects the demand for flights to the destination to pick up quickly. The route will allow travelers to bypass Puerto Princesa en route to the resort town of El Nido.
The Philippine Airlines will increase the flight frequencies of the Clark-San Vicente route to a daily flight on the 18th of December. The airline will offer seats at a promotional rate of P819 one way, beginning on the 28th of October.
PAL will also launch a new route, from Clark International Airport to San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. Another additional route is from Clark to Cauayan, Isabela. Both new routes will start on the 30th of October. The Philippine Airlines offers flights to the said destinations starting at five hundred nineteen pesos (P519).
The airline is also set to boost the frequencies of flights between Clark and Bacolod, Basco, Busuanga, Cagayan De Oro, Catarman, Cauayan, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, and Siargao.
Flying out of Clark makes more sense for travelers on a budget because the fares out of Clark International Airport are about 40 percent lower than the fares out of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
