MANILA - Philippine Airlines launched its new Clark-Antique route on Sunday.

PAL said its service to Antique will start with 2 flights a week (Tuesdays and Sundays) and could increase depending on the demand. Tickets for the Clark-Antique flights sell for as low as P888 one-way.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said it has extended the Antique Airport's runway to 1.4 kilometers to help make it more viable for commercial aircraft landing and takeoff.

CAAP said it also constructed a canopy for arriving passengers, repainted runway markers and made several other upgrades to the facility in preparation for PAL's inaugural flight.

Located in the town of San Jose de Buenavista, the facility is also known as Evelio Javier Airport and is the only airport serving Antique province.
