Sunlight Air Relocates Hub to Clark International Airport

CLARK - In a strategic move aimed at enhancing passenger experience and operational efficiency, boutique airline Sunlight Air commenced its new chapter by designating Clark International Airport (CRK) as its main hub, initiating this transition with a direct flight to Coron.

According to Philippine News Agency, the shift from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to CRK is intended to leverage the modern facilities and lower congestion at Clark, aligning with the airline's commitment to service excellence.

Brito-Garcia highlighted the airline's proactive strategy to relocate ahead of NAIA's anticipated rehabilitation, aiming to provide uninterrupted and superior service quality. The decision also aligns with CRK's growing stature, having been recognized as one of the world's most beautiful airports by Prix Versailles and the only Southeast Asian airport to earn this distinction in 2023.

The transition allows Sunlight Air to operate regular flights connecting Clark to key destinations such as Coron and Siargao, alongside bi-weekly services to Boracay and seasonal routes to San Vicente, Palawan. This move is anticipated to catalyze economic and tourism growth in Central Luzon, as noted by Department of Tourism Region 3 Director Richard Daenos, highlighting the broader implications for regional connectivity and prosperity.

Additionally, Sunlight Air continues to offer specialized charter services, catering to corporate and private events across the Philippines' prime tourist locations. While expanding its footprint in Clark, the airline maintains selected routes from NAIA and is set to broaden its network from Mactan-Cebu International Airport with new domestic connections and potential international services.

As Sunlight Air looks forward to growth and expansion, plans include augmenting its fleet within the next few years to accommodate rising travel demand and broaden its market reach.
