Qatar Airways will continue serving the Clark-Doha route from Clark International Airport (CRK) here because the number of its passengers has increased since October 2013, Abdallah Okasha, Qatar Airways country manager, said during the Clark Aviation Conference here on Friday.

The airline runs daily flights to and from CRK using an Airbus 330 that seats 305 passengers. “We are proud to highlight that Qatar Airways’ commitment to the Philippines will continue,” Okasha told participants at the conference. The airline also operates at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Metro Manila.

Okasha did not cite the total number of passengers that Qatar Airways has served since it began flights here in October 2013. However, he said passengers had increased by between 50 and 90 percent during the last six months. Many of the airline’s passengers are overseas Filipino workers from northern and central Luzon provinces.
