Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade said the new terminal building would not only provide a modern air travel experience, but also help the economy recover from the pandemic and equip Northern and Central Luzon with transportation infrastructure for the future.
“Clark International Airport will clearly showcase the best of Northern and Central Luzon; from the world-class service this new terminal will offer and to the thousands of job opportunities it will further open for many of our kababayans, it is no doubt that the Clark International Airport will cement its position as the next premier gateway of Asia,” he added
As a testament to improved mobility and connectivity, the Clark international airport will also be connected to the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark station that will allow passengers from Metro Manila to reach the airport in just 55 minutes.
The expanded airport is expected to create 150,000 new jobs, equating to 0.4% of the total employed population in the Philippines.
Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corporation (LIPAD), the operator and manager of the Clark International Airport, assured that the new terminal building was designed to be a space of safety, ease, and quiet, with peace of mind of travelers high in its priority, especially in this time of global health crisis.
