Air Carrier to Open Subic-Boracay-Taipei Route?

This sounds a bit far-fetched to us at the Bugle but we can only hope for the best.

Manila, Nov. 21 (CNA) A Philippine air carrier is scheduled to launch regular flights between Subic Bay and Boracay in the Philippines and Taipei in January 2013.

Rene Ocampo, an executive with Astro Air International Inc., expressed the airline's intention to fly the routes when he met recently with Raymond Wang, Taiwan's representative to the Philippines.

The Subic-based company is now waiting for the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines to give it the green light to fly the new routes.

The company will use two MD-83 passenger planes for the flights and will ask Taiwan to provide logistics and maintenance support.

Early this month, budget air carrier Air Asia announced that it would begin flying between Taipei and the Clark Freeport Zone in central Luzon in December.
