Clark airport expects 2.5M passengers by December

CLARK International Airport aims to welcome 4.5 million annual passengers by 2022.

THE Department of Transportation (DoTr) said it is expecting total passengers at the Clark International Airport (CIA) to reach 2.5 million next month as the holiday season kicks in.

In a statement on Monday, the DoTr said Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) president and chief executive officer Jaime Alberto C. Melo reported the number of passengers in Clark is set to hit a record 2.5 million by the third week of December. In 2017, CIA recorded 1.5 million passengers.

“(Clark International Airport) is now one of the country’s busiest airports and this 2.5 million passenger mark is another record-breaking milestone for Clark,” he was quoted as saying.

The gateway in Pampanga currently handles 390 domestic and 184 intrnational flights every week. By next year, the Clark airport eyes 11 domestic and 24 international destinations.

“The increase in the number of passengers here at the Clark Airport means we help ease congestion at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and in Metro Manila, and at the same time increase economic activities in the central and northern regions,” Mr. Melo added.
