Airport at Clark

Clark is served by the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.

The Clark International Airport mainly serves the Clark Freeport Zone and Angeles City in the Philippines. Since the distance to Manila is about 80km it is often used as an alternative for flights to the capital as this airport has cheaper landing fees than Manila International Airport. It is recently renamed back to Clark International Airport after have been named the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) for few years. Currently Clark Airport has only one Terminal used for both domestic and international flights. Some recent reconstruction to the terminal saw the addition of two aerobridges and a second level. In 2013 Terminal 2 has opened which will be used for international traffic and then Terminal 1 will be only used for domestic traffic.

Clark is a fairly small airport with about a million passengers a year. There are plans though to invest heavily and increase the capacity to 80 million passengers a year, that would make it one of the largest airports in the world. Currently facilities are limited with just a few basic shops and two international ATMs.

Entering the city from the airport

The city of Angeles is only 5km from the airport but taxis are expensive considering the short ride. Expect to pay PHP 300 to 500 depending your destination. There are jeepneys outside the main gate that will take you into the city for less but you need to walk 5 minutes. A bus to Manila departs in front of the arrival but it departs infrequent especially in the evening. The bus will take about 1,5 hours.
