CIAC to remove ‘eyesores’ at aviation complex

CLARK FREEPORT — The Clark International Airport Corporation urged locators to remove ‘eyesores’ at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex.

“We courteously ordered locators to refrain from building makeshift structures that disfigure the commercial and business landscape (as these) structures are not at all appealing to an investment hub like the aviation complex,” said CIAC President and CEO Aaron Aquino.

He added his directive include the removal of any prohibited structures constructed within leased areas.

Aquino added that among his first order of business after his appointment in early June was to inspect the premises of CIAC’s leased properties.

“If we are to attract more investments, both local and foreign, we’ll have to ensure the aesthetic value and the orderliness of the expansive aviation complex,” Aquino said.

Relative to Aquino’s directive, newly-appointed CIAC Vice President for Airport Operations, IC Calaguas, formed an inspection team composed of personnel from the security department, internal audit and marketing to conduct surprise inspection on all locators.

“The team is just finalizing protocols, then we will start with the inspection as directed by our President General Aquino,” Calaguas said.

Aquino added that some locators were found to have deviated from their original business intention without the government’s prior consent and approval.

The ‘eyesores’ Aquino cited include makeshift onsite quarters, improvised storage buildings, unkempt surroundings or crude structures with clotheslines in open view of the public.

CIAC is a government corporation geared towards establishing a world-class commercial hub at the civil aviation complex—home to the privately-run Clark International Airport (CRK) as well as the mixed-use business district Clark Global City and around 45 locators engaged in cargo and aviation-related businesses.
