Air Asia now flies daily, direct from Clark to Singapore

Air Asia's inaugural flight from Clark to Singapore

Just recently, TRAVELIFE's Meg Caligner joined the inaugural flight to Singapore from Clark International Airport of Air Asia Philippines. She sent in this account:

"Air Asia Philippines, one of the low cost carriers now flying out of the Philippines to various destinations, recently launched its Clark-Singapore-Clark daily route.

This is further evidence of their pledge to support the tourism and trade industry in the Philippines. The launch of their first ever direct flight to Singapore from Clark, Pampanga will certainly increase traffic between Singapore and the Philippines.

SINGING ALL THE WAY TO CLARK

Our flight began with an entertaining two-hour ride via a special jeepney with a videoke service on board. We literally rocked our way to the Widus Convention Center in Clark from Manila for the pre-launch celebration.

Several guests asked Air Asia CEO Maan Hontiveros why Air Asia opted to base their operations in Clark when almost all the other airlines -- both mainstream and budget -- are based in Manila.

Maan Hontiveros replied: “Because this is our home, and we want to make it convenient most especially for the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) who reside in Central Luzon.

MORE EXCITING IN SINGAPORE

Afterwards, Singapore Tourism Board Managing Director Sherina Chan gave us four ideas for exploring Singapore, the little red dot of Asia: shopping, entertainment, food and attractions.

This left everybody was oooh-ing and ahhh-ing with enthusiasm and astonishment, even before taking off for Singapore. Sherina added wittily: “It’s more fun in the Philippines, but more exciting in Singapore.



AIR ASIA'S OWN CROONERS

All-night singing capped off the party. Officials from the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), Department of Tourism (DOT), Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and friends from the media sang along.

However, the highlight of the night was when one of Air Asia’s Filipino pilots, Captain Dexter Commendador, surprised everyone by singing his own version of Ricky Martin’s She Bangs accompanied by his cabin crew."

And several hours later, Meg flew off to Singapore for just another long weekend of fun in a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
