Clark International Airport saw a 397% increase in usage by both domestic and international passengers over last year’s figures, officials said.

The increase coincided with the Sept. 28 launch of Clark’s new passenger terminal led by Chairman Bongbong Marcos Jr., who described the airport as “the perfect example of what government and the private sector can do.” .

The new terminal was part of a 19.25 billion peso megastructure project undertaken by the Philippine government under the public-private partnership model.

It included features such as a road access network, horizontal amenities such as taxiways and apron, and a transport terminal site, among others.

The Luzon International Premiere Airport Development (LIPAD) Corp. is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the airport with a contract from the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) who worked with the Ministry of Transport to lead the project.

LIPAD is a private consortium consisting of Filinvest Development Corp., JG Summit Holdings Inc., Philippine Airport Ground Support Services Inc. and Changi Airports Philippines (I) Pte. Ltd:, 100% subsidiary of

Changi International Airports. The members of the consortium each have extensive experience in airport operations, air transport and real estate development.

Frederick Go, chairman of LIPAD and CEO of Robinsons Land Corp., said the grand opening of the new terminal is a “signal to the world that the new CRK is open for business.”

“Our goal is to continue working to expand our network above pre-COVID levels, connecting CRK to more national and international points. CRK has started charting new growth rates with the recent return of domestic travel,” he said.
