South Korea will be more accessible as additional flights from Clark International Airport (CRK) resume for T’way Air and Royal Air Philippines.
From July 28, Royal Air will resume flights RW 307 and RW 308 to Busan. Flights are on Thursdays and Sundays.
Although Royal Air’s commercial operations were suspended during the pandemic in 2020, the airline has played a major role in repatriating Filipinos. They flew Filipinos from Wuhan, China to the Philippines, being among the first to begin repatriation flights.
Royal Air also continued cargo operations from CRK amid the pandemic.
On July 29, T’way Air will begin flights from Incheon to CRK via TW 147 and TW 148 every Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
Tway’s daily flights begin August 4.
Based in Seongsu-dong, Seoul, T’way Air is known for its low-cost travel deals, serving various destinations such as Bangkok, Guam, Singapore, among others.
The airline, formerly known as Hansung Airlines, reportedly carried nearly 2.9 million domestic passengers and 4.2 million international passengers in 2018.
Royal Air Philippines was established in 2002 and has since expanded its domestic and international operations. His first round-trip commercial flight was from Clark to Caticlan and back.
The airline covers domestic and international routes like Cambodia, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
