CLARK FREEPORT — Korean Air’s maiden flight to the Clark International Airport (CRK) landed with 220 passengers from South Korea at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday.

The inaugural flight of the Korean Air Airbus A330 came from Incheon in Seoul and was welcomed with a water cannon salute.


The flight coincided with Korean Air’s 50th anniversary this year, said Cheol Lee, Korean Air Manila regional manager.

Its daily CRK flights, scheduled every 1:10 p.m., increased its international flights to 125 cities in 44 countries, Lee said.


Korean Air will operate in CRK ahead of the opening of its bigger terminal in July next year.

BCDA designed and built the new P15-billion terminal for 8 million passengers. Its operation and maintenance was won by the consortium Lipad Corp.

Lipad president and chief executive officer Bi Yong Chungunco, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, and Clark International Airport Corp. president Joshua Bingcang attended the Korean Air program. /je
