Emirates to suspend Clark flights
Dubai, March 24, 2014
Dubai-based Emirates will stop flying to Clark International Airport in the Philippines from May, a report said quoting the airline.
“Emirates can confirm that it is suspending its daily, non-stop service between Clark International Airport and Dubai from May 1, 2014,” an Emirates spokesperson was quoted as saying by Gulf News.
The airline decided to end the route “after a review of the airline’s operations to ensure the best utilisation of its aircraft fleet for its overall business objectives”, it said.
The route was launched with daily flights in October 2013. Clark International is roughly 100km north of Manila.
The Emirates spokesperson stated that its three daily non-stop flights between Manila and Dubai will continue to operate and that alternative flights will be arranged for passengers impacted by the closure of the Clark route, the report said.
