THE Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) has embarked on a roadshow in a bid to raise more awareness and attract more passengers in Northern Luzon to use the Clark International Airport in Pampanga.
CIAC recently held the North Philippines Clark Airport Road Show 2014 in Pangasinan, Baguio City, and La Union with the cooperation of the Department of Tourism in Cordillera and Ilocos.
ClAC President and Chief Executive Officer, Victor Jose Luciano, said in a statement that they want to emphasize to residents of Northern Philippines the availability of international and domestic flights in Clark Airport.
Clark Airport hosts carriers such as Qatar Airways, Asiana Airlines, Dragonair, Cebu Pacific Air, Jin Air, Seair-I, and Tiger Airways.
AirAsia Berhad of Malaysia is set to return to Clark on October 17, 2014 with the re-launching of Clark-Kuala Lumpur flights at four times weekly.
Luciano said the company is also firming up the second leg of the Clark Airport Road Show, which is set to be held in the Ilocos Region in the next few months.
Earlier, the North Philippines Clark Airport Road Show was held on August 7 to 8 at SM Rosales in Pangasinan, SM City Baguio, and at the CSI Mall in San Fernando City, La Union.
A grand event was held at SM City Baguio wherein Luciano informed the audience about the ongoing developments in Clark International Airport. He also noted the full support given by DOT-Cordillera Regional Director Purification-Suanding Molintas and DOT Region-1 Director Martin Valera.
Clark Airport recently opened its new Passenger Terminal Building designed to accommodate 5 million passengers annually. CIAC spent P417 million for the construction of the new facility.
The facility also has 34 check-in-counters and 24 immigration counters for seamless travel. Total area has increased to about 18,573 square meters from 8,857 square meters. ROSALIE C. PERIABRAS
