Asia’s ‘next premier gateway’ now in Clark – Tugade
Its new passenger terminal will turn the Clark International Airport (CRK) into “Asia’s next premier gateway,” Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said on Saturday during President Rodrigo Duterte’s inspection of the P12.55-billion facility.
“I am happy that the new passenger terminal building of the Clark International Airport has now been completed. Wala pa ako sa DOTr, pangarap ko na ito,” the transportation chief said during his speech.
“This terminal will help usher the CRK into the future, as ‘Asia’s Next Premier Gateway,’ Tugade said.
The new terminal can accommodate 8 million passengers every year. It is expected to start operating by the last quarter.
Tugade listed some of the unique features of the Clark terminal, such as contactless baggage handling and contactless passenger check-in and check-out.
Family rooms and restrooms are also gender-neutral and PWD-friendly, according to the Cabinet official.
“Mayroon ding Heroes lounge at OFW lounge para magamit nang libre ng ating mga modernong bayani, gaya ng mga pulis, sundalo, at mga OFWs,” Tugade said.
