Middle Eastern start-up carrier Kang Pacific Airlines has conducted its first flight between Clark International Airport in the Philippines and Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

The airline’s schedule features twice-weekly services on the route performed by Boeing MD-83 aircraft from Philippines carrier TransGlobal Airways.

Under the plan originally put forward last year, Kang Pacific had intended to use McDonnell Douglas DC-10 aircraft to operate between Fujairah and destinations in India, the Philippines and Europe.

The carrier’s first service arrived at Fujairah on 6 June. Currently the flights to Clark, near Manila, require a refuelling stop at Dhaka in Bangladesh but Kang Pacific is to upgrade the service to a non-stop Boeing 767 flight from August.

“We are in negotiation with TransGlobal Airways to acquire more aircraft, which will allow us to increase frequencies on the route to meet the ever-growing demand for this new service,” says the carrier.

Kang Pacific is also planning to extend its operations to other Asian destinations, initially Singapore and Bangkok.
