TACLOBAN CITY– AirAsia Philippines disclosed that it is mulling to revive the Tacloban-Clark, Pampanga route next year.

Steve Dailisan, the company’s communication and public affairs head, said that the move is partly due to the increasing number of passengers coming from this city and the rest of the region.

It was learned from Dailisan that Tacloban City is among AirAsia Philippines top domestic markets, flying four times a week for its Manila-Tacloban flight.

And to further encourage air passengers to patronize AirAisa Philippines, they are offering 20% off on domestic and even international flights this year.

The airline company made a sales blitz in the city last week.
It was learned from Dailisan that the number of air passengers from the region who are using AirAsia Philippines has already reached their pre-pandemic number.

He added that in line with their mission of bridging the distance for all Filipinos, the airline plans to revive their Clark to Tacloban routes, hopefully in 2024.

More than being the home of the longest bridge in the Philippines and as the site of the US General Douglas MacArthur’s landing, this city is the gateway to Eastern Visayas known for its captivating natural beauty including rock formations, waterfalls, sand bars, white sand beaches like Kalanggaman in Palompon, Leyte, and Sambawan Islands off Maripipi town, Biliran, colorful and enchanting festivals, and mouth-water foods.
