CLARK FREEPORT-A photo of Clark International Airport’s “water salute” to the arrival of Emirates Airline last October 1 currently holds the top spot in the best route launch Fire Truck Water Arch (FTWA) of an online international contest.
Titled “Emirates Dubai to Clark International”, the photo of Clark International Airport Corporation Corporate Communications Office photographer Eugene Ignaxius Raymond Orejas got a score of 32.9 out of a possible 40, knocking off four other entries, which had a score ranging from 17 to 30.
In an interview, Orejas said he is thankful with this recognition and this is also a source of motivation to do his job even better.
As an award, the CIAC Emergency Services Department was given the Arch of Triumph certificate from Airline Network News and Analysis (anna.aero).
According to anna.aero, the airport that achieves the highest score in what remains of 2013 will also be crowned “Arch of Triumph” Champion.
Anna.aero is an open website dedicated to outstanding airline network planning intelligence, produced by a multi-disciplinary team.
Its “Arch of Triumph” contest is a new FTWA scoring system, which is the only global standard for judging the quality of the traditional airport fire chief welcome for new routes.
