"When we envisioned this project, nobody believed that we can make it happen. There were doubts and skepticism which may have defeated us along the way and hindered the completion of our goal. However, our determination and resolve were much stronger than any disbelief. Now, they will finally believe," DOTr Secretary Tugade said in his speech delivered by Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) Director General Jim Sydiongco, who represented the Transport Chief during the ceremony.

From conceptualization, execution to completion, the Clark International Airport’s new PTB is one of the fastest undertaken big-ticket infrastructure project by any government or any administration. 

In her speech, LIPAD Corporation CEO Bi Yong Chungunco said that it is high-time for the airport to have a new PTB.

"We hit 4 million passengers. And that's why, it is time for us to move into this new terminal, with a capacity of 8.2 million passengers," she said

Further, the LIPAD CEO mentioned the plan to covert the old passenger terminal building into a vaccination hub. 

" Our facility will be ready to vaccinate more than 10,000 people a day. Because what can be more perfect than having Clark International Airport as a vaccine hub and have the vaccination center right next door," Ms. Chungunco said.

Clark International Airport

Clark International Airport (IATA: CRK, ICAO: RPLC) (Kapampangan: Pangyatung Sulapawan ning Clark, Tagalog: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Clark) is an international airport located within the Clark Freeport Zone between Angeles and Mabalacat in the province of Pampanga, Philippines. It is located 43.2 NM (80.0 km; 49.7 mi)[10] northwest of Manila. It is accessible through the Subic–Clark–Tarlac Expressway.

The airport serves Central Luzon, Northern Luzon, and to an extent Metro Manila. The name is derived from the former American Clark Air Base which was the largest overseas base of the United States Air Force until it was closed in 1991 and handed over to the Government of the Philippines.

The airport is managed and operated by Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD) Corp., a consortium of JG Summit Holdings, Filinvest Development Corporation, Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions (PAGSS) Inc., and Changi Airports Philippines Pte. Ltd.; while the southern part of the facility is utilized by the Philippine Air Force as Clark Air Base.

The airport serves both international and domestic flights. A new passenger terminal building is under construction and is expected to be finished in 2020.


This brings us a step closer to opening the northern gateway to 12.2 million passengers yearly.

Once operational, the Clark International Airport will significantly boost its passenger capacity from the current 4.2 million to 12.2 million passengers annually.

The new terminal, built by Megawide Construction Corp. and GMR Infrastructure Ltd., is also expected to help in decongesting the passenger traffic at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Pasay City.

The DOTr added the expansion project will be a key factor in accelerating economic progress in Central Luzon, especially in job generation and tourism endeavors.

The new Clark International Airport terminal is slated to operate in January 2021.

San Miguel Corporation is also planning to build the New Manila International Airport in Bulacan, Bulacan, also aimed at decongesting NAIA and complement the nearby Clark International Airport.

Senators approved on final reading on Monday the bill granting San Miguel Aerocity Inc. the authority to build, develop, and operate the new international air gateway to the greater Metro Manila area. The measure also grants San Miguel exemptions from paying income and real estate taxes until authorities declare that the proponent has "fully recovered its investment cost" on the project.
