EVA Air will launch daily nonstop flights between Taipei and the northwestern Philippines, starting on March 30, 2023.
The addition of Clark International Airport will give EVA three gateways in the country, in addition to Manila and Cebu.
By the end of March, the airline will be operating 35 flights a week to the Philippines, offering travelers from throughout Asia, Europe, Australia and North America more arrival and departure options.
Clark Airport is about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Manila Airport, giving Filipino passengers an alternative way to fly to Taiwan and connect onward to other destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
Clark service also reduces travel time from the airport to popular northern Luzon Island beaches and resorts and, via the Subic–Clark–Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), is still convenient to Manila.
The new gateway is tailor-made for Taiwan – Philippines travelers. It will also be attractive to American and European passengers who transit to the Philippines through Taipei.
