Clark flights shift to new passenger terminal starting May 2

  • Clark flights shift to new passenger terminal starting May 2
  • All arriving and departing flights will unload and board passengers at Clark International Airport’s new passenger terminal from May 2
  • The terminal can accommodate up to 8 million passengers annually, in addition to the 4.2 million passengers that the existing terminal can handle

Starting May 2, all flights at Clark International Airport (CRK) will use the new passenger terminal building, its operator and manager Luzon International Premiere Airport Development (LIPAD) Corp. said in a statement.

On May 2, passengers on the following flights are advised to proceed to the new terminal: Jetstar 3K 779/780; Qatar Airways QR 930/931; Scoot TR 386/387; Emirates EK 338; Cebu Pacific Air 5J 606/607; and Philippine Airlines PR 2833/2834.

Similarly, passengers of all flights scheduled from May 3 onwards will go through the new terminal.

“We have put a lot of efforts into making our passengers’ journey as seamless as possible through the terminal and getting to and from our airport,” LIPAD chief executive officer Bi Yong Chungunco said.

LIPAD was awarded the 25-year concession to operate and maintain CRK in August 2019.

From North Luzon Expressway and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), passengers can take the SCTEX Clark North Exit into Clark Freeport Zone. They will get to the first rotund a few meters away, where they can take the third exit and straight onto CRK Airport Road.

Those who are already inside Clark Freeport Zone can take Gil Puyat Avenue towards Mabalacat Gate. There they will reach a roundabout where they can take the first exit towards CRK Airport Road leading straight to the new terminal.

Directions to the new terminal can also be found easily on mobile apps such as Google Maps and Waze, LIPAD noted.

Point-to-point (P2P) bus services from Trinoma and Paranaque City, taxi services from within Pampanga and other car rental services are also available.

Formally turned over to LIPAD in January 2021, CRK’s second passenger terminal building boasts a 110,000-square-meter area and will have 18 aerobridges when completed.

The terminal will be able to accommodate as many as 8 million passengers annually, in addition to the 4.2 million passengers that the existing terminal can handle.

CRK is being positioned as “Asia’s next premier gateway,” a state-of-the-art international airport equipped for contactless baggage handling, passenger check-ins and check-outs, and an ordering system aimed at making air travel hassle-free and effortless.

The new passenger terminal building 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.
