CLARK FREEPORT –– The Lipad Corp. has accepted this Friday the new passenger terminal built by the joint venture GMR-Megawide at the Clark International Airport here.

The terminal, designed to serve eight million passengers, would be operational in July this year, Lipad Corp. chief executive officer Bi Yong Chungunco announced in a simple hand-over rite.

She described the new terminal as a “majestic structure” that reflected the Zambales mountain range where Mt Pinatubo lies. The terminal project was awarded in 2017 and began construction in August 2018.

Chungunco said the old terminal would be converted into a “mass vaccination facility for 10,000 people a day.”
