Emirates Airlines announced that it will begin daily flights between Dubai and and Manila-Clark starting October 1 2013 using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Emirates flight EK338 will depart Dubai at about 4 am and arrive at Clark International Airport at 4:40 pm. The return flight, EK339 will depart at 6:35 pm and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 11:05 pm.

The airline operates 3 daily flight out of NAIA and has been operating in the country since 1990.

“The launch of flights between Clark International Airport and Dubai will offer our passengers the flexibility of choosing from two destinations in the Philippines,” said Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline in a statement on Monday, February 18.

The new route also allows Emirates SkyCargo to provide more than 160 tonnes of additional cargo hold capacity each way per week, further supporting Philippines exports of perishables, such as dairy products, fruit and vegetables, meat, seafood and electrical and electronic equipment, and its imports of textiles, apparel, plants, flowers and chemical products.


  1. It's about time for CRK to host a mideast based carrier. I hope QR & Etihad will follow EK's lead. This is good news for Pinoys. They now have a choice. I just hope CRK Int'l Airport will have facilities to accommodate the influx of pax. The gov't has to further develop CRK soon.

  2. Time to hit the ground running. Expand and improve the terminals and more int'l airlines will follow suit. Build it, and they will come.

  3. thank you CRK.....you make us feel proud.....now we can finally fly out to the middle east from there with 4 hours check-in time and 3 hours waiting time for our bags and the taxi drivers will have a heyday ripping us of..........CRK we love you so much!
