Budget airline AirAsia Philippines will begin flights between Macau and Clark Freeport in the Philippines on July 19.

The information was confirmed earlier this week.

The airline also plans direct flights between Clark Freeport and Hong Kong.

A report in Business Inquirer quotes AirAsia Philippines chief executive as saying that the flights will help AirAsia “tap tourists from Hong Kong and Macau” to travel to the island nation’s beaches and diving spots.

Last week, the budget carrier had said that it would shelve plans for daily flights to Macau, amid a maritime dispute between China and the Philippines over the Scarborough (Panatag) Shoal.
