Chief Executive Officer, Philippines AirAsia, Inc.
In 1902, Clark was established by the Americans and was formerly known as Fort Stotsenburg. In November 1991, the Clark Air Base was reverted back to the Philippine government.
In April 2008, Executive Order 716 was issued, transforming the CIAC as a subsidiary of the BCDA.
Pursuant to EO 716, series of 2008, the Clark International Airport Corporation is tasked and mandated to develop, operate, manage and maintain the Clark Civil Aviation Complex.
The Clark Civil Aviation Complex, located within the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, the biggest American military base outside the United States, covers an area of approximately 2,367 hectares with a 3,200-meter long runway and associated taxiways, aircraft parking apron, a passenger terminal building and related facilities.
Within its immediate environs, Clark has a local catchment area with an estimated population of 23 million. It covers Regions 1, 2 and 3, the CAR and the northern part of NCR which are the Quezon City and the KAMANAVA area.At the center of the Clark Civil Aviation Complex is the Clark International Airport (CRK).
The Clark International Airport (CRK) is located at the heart of Central Luzon, making it the most viable and convenient airport of choice for travelers from North-Central Luzon and the northern Metro Manila area who wants to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city streets. It is easily accessible by shuttle bus from various points of Metro Manila and North Luzon.
