Diosdado Macapagal International Airport--[CRK]

Quote:
Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA, Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Diosdado Macapagal, Kapampangan: Sulapawang Internasyonal ning Diosdado Macapagal), also called Clark International Airport (IATA: CRK, ICAO: RPLC), is the main airport serving the immediate vicinity of the Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) and the general area of Angeles City in the Philippines. It also serves the northern and central regions of Luzon, and being 85 kilometers (50 miles) from the older Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) that serves Manila, DMIA also serves Metro Manila and its immediate vicinity. It is located on an area of the economic zone formerly utilized as the Clark Air Base, which was closed in late 1991 by the U.S. Air Forces after the explosion of Mount Pinatubo.

The two parallel runways of DMIA are capable of NASA Space Shuttle landings. However, it is no longer listed as an active landing site[3], and it has never had a Space Shuttle land there[4].

The airport is managed by the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), a government-owned and/or controlled corporation.

Is that the whole terminal? With 1 single airbridge? Looks cute.
Seriously, there must be more going on if this is really going to be the premier gateway airport to the Philippines, replacing NAIA in 3 years time.

for now, NAIA will still be the country's gateway, the complex is scheduled for a 40B Pesos redevelopment program, so Manila will not just allow all flights to be transferred to Clark that easy.

we'll see... although it may never replace, they could both handle international flights in the future; the plan for DMIA will take 5-10 years anyway, by that time, NAIA will have reached its capacity...

as for support infrastructures, the previous administration has embarked on numerous projects that could improve travel from Manila to DMIA... railways, expressways, skyways, etc... furthermore, a business tycoon is planning to put up a dedicated high speed railway that will serve NAIA and DMIA... his company is also planning to build a $150 million terminal for the initial phase...

Terminal 1-500,000
Terminal 1 First Expansion-2,000,000
Terminal 1 Second Expansion-5,000,000
Terminal 2 Phase 1-7,000,000
Terminal 1 Phase 2-TBA
Terminal 3-80,000,0000

After the first phase of Terminal 2 gets built, all future terminals would have to be large in size and capacity to force the airport to jut up to an annual capacity of 80,000,000.
