Clark airport to suspend operations Thursday evening
In compliance with the Luzon-wide lockdown, the Clark International Airport will suspend operations starting Thursday evening, an official said on Wednesday.
Teri Flores, corporate communications chief of Lipad, the consortium which runs the airport located inside the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga province, said the temporary closure of the airport was pursuant to the ban on travel to and from Luzon.
“We are operating until tomorrow (March 19),” the executive was quoted as saying in an inquirer.net report.
But she added that they were still waiting for the official announcement of the airport’s closure.
President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire Luzon island under “enhanced community quarantine” in response to the Covid-19 contagion from March 17 until April 12.
The order includes a ban on all land, air and sea travel, except for special cases, causing a wave of flight cancellations and stranding passengers.
