Aviation Updates Philippines – On Tuesday, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced the new passenger terminal building at Clark International Airport has been completed by the end of September, ahead of the target completion date of October this year.

The DOTr said in a Facebook post: "Despite the current challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), and GMR Megawide, ensured the accelerated construction works at CRK, and thus made a huge headway, while still observing strict health and safety protocols to protect workers and other project stakeholders."

Per instructions of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, the new terminal is expected to be operational by January 2021.


The new terminal would enable Clark airport to service 12.2 million passengers per year, up significantly from only 4.2 million per year in the current terminal. The expansion project aims to name Clark as "Asia's Next Premier Gateway," being an alternative to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Clark, among the planned airports in Sangley and Bulacan, were specifically planned as alternatives to decongest NAIA. Meanwhile, San Miguel Corporation has recently been given franchise to operate the New Manila International Airport in Bulacan.
