BCDA Explains the Importance of Clark International Airport Under Pres. Duterte


The Bases Conversion and Development Authority explains the importance of the modern Clark International Airport under the Duterte administration. According to BCDA President Vince Dizon, the plan of the airport started during the admin of Pres. Aquino but the sad part, it was not implemented although it was already presented by NEDA way back 2012 or 2013.


In an interview with ANC's Headstart, BCDA Pres. Vince Dizon stated that if the modern Clark International Airport Termina project was implemented during the Aquino administration we would have this kind of airport by now and at least 3.5 million cars would not be in EDSA.

BCDA explained that their agency coordinated with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to build the airport by the middle of next year and they will be doing their best to finish the project before Pres. Duterte steps down in 2022.

Vince Dizon, the BCDA President was quoted as saying "Our target is to start building this building by middle of next year, so by 2019, half of the President’s term, we’re going to have our first world-class airport in Clark," he said.


The national government will offer the bidding of the Clark International Airport Terminal in the first or second quarter of next year and the construction will start soon after. The BCDA also noted that the terminal was designed by France's Aeroport De Paris, which operates Charles de Gaulle Airport.

The Clark International Airport is very important to the Philippine economy because it will help remove 3.5 million cars on EDSA leading to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and could ease Metro Manila's worsening traffic problems.

Aside from the construction of the Clark International Airport Terminal, the BCDA also noted that the Duterte administration will also start the feasibility study and the initial phase of Clark Green City, the Clark-Subic Railway, Manila-Clark High-Speed Railway as well as the Bus Rapid System connecting NAIA to Bonifacio Global City.
