The Clark International Airport mainly serves the Clark Freeport Zone and Angeles City in the Philippines. Since the distance to Manila is about 80 km it is often used as an alternative for flights to the capital as this airport has cheaper landing fees than Manila International Airport. It is recently renamed back to Clark International Airport after have been named the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) for few years.
Currently Clark Airport has only one Terminal used for both domestic and international flights. Some recent reconstruction to the terminal saw the addition of two aerobridges and a second level. A second terminal is being constructed which will be used for international flights only. Also a Budget terminal will open in 2017.
Clark is a fairly small airport with about a million passengers a year. There are plans though to invest heavily and increase the capacity to 80 million passengers a year, that would make it one of the largest airports in the world. Currently facilities are limited with just a few basic shops and two international ATMs.
Clark International Airport is located about 5 km northwest of Angeles city and 80 km northwest of Manila.
There are jeepneys outside the main gate that will take you into the city for less but you need to walk 5 minutes.
Busses to Metro Manila are served by Partas and Philtranco and depart in front of the arrival hall. The buses depart infrequent and do not operate after midnight. The bus to Metro Manila will take about 1,5 hours at PHP 250. You could also take a Jeepney (PHP 15) from the main gate to Dau Bus Terminal from which you have more options.
The city of Angeles is only 5 km from the airport but taxis are expensive considering the short ride. Expect to pay PHP 400 to 500 depending your destination.
A taxi to Manila will cost about 3000 pesos.
