The expansion will also elevate Clark airport’s stature as “Asia’s Next Premier Gateway” and is expected to significantly help in decongesting the passenger traffic at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, it added.

The project was undertaken by the Megawide GMR Construction Joint Venture, Inc. (MGCJV), and was monitored by the DOTr and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).
