“In line with our commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and top-tier flights to underserved local destinations, we are happy to have launched our first flight from Clark with the support of the Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corp. (LIPAD) and are confident that this move will allow us to better deliver our trademark quality of service to many more Filipinos,” shared Sunlight Air CEO, Ryna Brito-Garcia.

This milestone marks the start of an exciting chapter for the airline, as this move brings about a number of fresh new routes, including flights to Siargao, San Vicente, Coron, and Caticlan. Noel Manankil, Chief Executive Officer and President of LIPAD, also expressed excitement about this development, “We are thrilled to welcome Sunlight Air to Clark International Airport, further solidifying CRK’s position as a key aviation hub in the region. As we embark on this partnership, we are dedicated to providing Sunlight Air passengers with an unparalleled travel experience marked by efficiency, convenience, and a focus on customer satisfaction.”

The inaugural flight passengers were welcomed aboard the aircraft with festive leis, water cannons, and a performance by local guest performers as an added treat. Also in attendance at the launch was Regional Director of the Department of Tourism for Region 3, Dr. Richard Daenos, Clark Development Corporation (CDC) President and CEO Atty. Agnes Devanadera, and Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) President and CEO Engr. Joshua Bingcang. 

Alongside Sunlight Air’s move to its new home, the airline is also celebrating another feat this week with the launch of new routes from Mactan-Cebu International Airport. The inaugural flight (CEB – IAO, 2R857), happening on April 3, will mark the start of daily routes from Cebu to Coron, Siargao, and Manila, with flights to Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, and Caticlan coming soon after. 

The inaugural flight from MCIA will also see the following esteemed guests celebrate this milestone with Sunlight Air; Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority CEO and General Manager Julius G. Neri and Aboitiz GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation’s CEO Athanasios Titonis. Following this development, more Cebuanos and tourists in Cebu will now have direct access to other top destinations in the country.
