P7.2 billion airport terminal rising in Clark

Department of Transportation and Communications has already infused PhP1.2 billion for the development of Clark International Airport. The amount is for the construction of new Low Cost Carrier-Passenger Terminal Building that will have a total cost of PhP7.2 billion.

“The new LCC PTB is designed to accommodate at least 15 million passengers annually at the price of P 7.2 Billion. We tapped the services of Aeroports de Paris for the feasibility study not only of the terminal but also other facilities at the aviation complex,” DOTC chief Jun Abaya said.

Currently, Clark International Airport accommodates flights of Dragonair, Asiana Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Seair, Qatar Airways, Tigerair, Jin Air, and Air Asia Berhad. The airport management is also working to convince Emirates and Air Asia to return in Clark.

“The fact that this project is up for bidding this year is proof that government is serious in developing Clark Airport,” Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) President and CEO Atty. Emigdio Tanjuatco III said.
