New Clark airport terminal now 52% complete

CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga — A top official of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) announced on Wednesday that the 1st Clark International Airport expansion project is now 52 percent complete ahead of its schedule. 

BCDA President Vince Dizon said during the site inspection of the newest terminal of the Clark International Airport that construction is expected to be completed mid-2020.

Considered to be the highest airport structure in the country today, Dizon  said, the newest terminal is 22 meters in height against Cebu’s Mactan International Airport at 16 meters.

The new terminal features the beautiful views of the Sacobia mountain ranges to the West and the pride of Pampanga, Mt. Arayat, in the East.

“This is just a first phase of a five-phase expansion plan that is envisioned to make Clark International Airport a major gateway of the region,” Dizon said.

He furthered that once completed, the five phases will bring the capacity of Clark International Airport  to 80 million passengers per annum.

The 82,600-squre meter terminal was designed and conceptualized  by Architect Royal Pineda. 

Dizon added the pieces of wood used at the newest terminal came all the way from Austria.

“We would like to thank President Duterte for making this beautiful project a reality,” Dizon stressed.

Meantime, Secretary of Finance Carlos Dominguez III said the expansion of Clark Airport terminal is the first fastest project being implemented under President Duterte’s term. 

“Clark Airport is the next premier gateway to the nation which will anchor rapid development and other investments in Clark and in Asia. This is not only model for rapid implementation of projects,  it is also a model for effective governance  in the modern age,” Dominguez said. 

Joining the site inspection were Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade, Senator JV Ejercito, Senator Joel Villanueva, Tarlac Governor Susan Yap, Tarlac 2nd district Cong.Victor Yap among others.
