Clark (CRK) Airport

Clark CRK Airport Overview

Clark International Airport CRK serves the immediate vicinity of the Clark Economic Zone of Central Luzon and Angeles City, and is the Philippine's fastest-growing airport.  Due to its strategic location, it is only between 1.5 to 4 hours by air from most major Asian cities, and less than 2 hours by car from Metro Manila or  the Subic Bay Freeport. 
Clark Airport is managed by the government-owned Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), who is aiming to make Clark International a competitive aviation services center for the Asia-Pacific region by 2015; a secondary airport of choice by 2017, and a premier world-class airport of the Philippines by 2020.

CRK Airport is located in Angeles City, in the province of Pampanga,  directly accessible from the Clark South Interchange from the Subic-Clark / Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx). It is  80 km from Metro Manila or Subic Bay, reached directly by the NLEX (Northern Luzon Expressway).

With two runways and an estimated 1.2M passengers a year, Clark International Airport is hub to Asia & beyond, presently served by major and low-cost carriers offering flights within the Asia-Pacific region.   Note that Tiger Air is temporarily suspended as of July 1, 2014 until further notice.

An Airport Terminal and Security fee for all passengers (600php) and Philippine Travel Tax for international departures (1,620php) is charged both  to Filipinos and foreign residents.
