Save on costs

BAGUIO CITY-- Northern and Central Luzon travelers were urged to  use Clark International Airport in Pampanga as it develops its facilities and services.
During the Clark International Airport North Philippines Roadshow that kicked-off in Baguio City recently, stakeholders were given a walk-through of the airport’s upgrade and various developments, facilities and flight services.
Clark International Airport Corp. president and CEO Alexander Cauguiran urged participants to take a look at CRK saying it would be more convenient for travelers especially from northern provinces to take domestic and international flights there   and be connected to the rest of the world. 
“We are encouraging people to make Clark International Airport the primary airport for Northern and Central Luzon; you do not need to travel to Metro Manila if the flights are available in Clark,” Cauguiran said.
“The sustaining campaign is to further promote the patronage of CRK in its catchment areas in Central and Northern Luzon especially among OFWs and their families,” he added.
Clark Airport is host to various airlines such as Qatar Airways that flies to Doha; Emirates Airlines via Dubai; Cathay Dragon via Hong Kong; Asiana Airlines via Incheon in South Korea; Jin Air via Incheon and Busan; Philippine Airlines via Incheon and domestic flights as well. Cebu Pacific via Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore with domestic flights that increased frequencies.
Caugarian said they are following   President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to develop the premier airport of the North and as part of   government’s efforts to decongest Metro Manila where millions of passengers traverse in going to the already crowded Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
“The only way to decongest Metro Manila is to further develop Clark Airport,” he said.
The Clark Master development plan is not only dedicated to the airport terminal expansion but the entire aviation complex as well. He informed that the government has already released an initial P 2.8-billion for the construction of the new second passenger terminal to accommodate 8 million passengers every year. The second terminal is scheduled to be constructed within the next three years.   
Aside from   saving   on time with lesser travel time especially with the Tarlac-Pangasinan Expressway and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, by using Clark Airport, travelers would save on gas and toll fees while avoiding traffic congestion in Manila.   
The CIAC Roadshow which is supported by the Dept. of Tourism and  local government units will also be held in Dagupan City in Pangasinn, Olongapo City in Zambales, Balanga City in Bataan and Cabanatuan City in Nueva Ecija in the coming months.
