The new passenger terminal building (PTB) of Clark International Airport (CRK) will be open for domestic flights by July, and will start providing international services in September, according to the Department of Transportation.

The newly constructed second PTB is slated for a July opening, six months after it was formally turned over last January 22 to Luzon International Premier Airport Development Corp. (LIPAD), the private operator formally awarded a 25-year concession to operate and maintain the CRK in August 2019.

The PTB is envisioned to help spur economic progress and development in Central Luzon, and ease congestion at the country’s main gateway, Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

With a floor area of 110,000 square meters, the terminal will be able to accommodate up to 8 million passengers annually, in addition to the 4.2 million passengers that the existing terminal can handle.

The new terminal building, located 1.5 kilometers from the existing passenger terminal, has four floor levels and 18 aero bridges or passenger boarding bridges.

LIPAD had appointed global design firm Populous as lead interior designer of the PTB.
