BAGUIO CITY – Clark International Airport is preparing for the arrival of its 5 millionth passenger this week, made possible by the entry of budget carriers into the country.

Darwin Cunanan, Clark International Airport vice president for commercial and business development, said the bulk of travelers using Clark come from Northern Luzon.

A P1 billion expansion project will extend the two 3.2-km parallel runways to 4 km each to accommodate new-generation, wide-body aircraft.

Cunanan said aviation upgrades are also set for the expansion of the airport as well as the construction of a budget airline terminal to cater to the new market of travelers.

Cunanan said the travelers prefer to skimp on airfare but splurge on amenities overseas. “This way more people can travel,” he said.

By 2013, Cunanan forecasts, an additional 1.6 passengers will be flying out from the airport.

The Clark airport is designed to unclog the NAIA and cater to Northern Luzon passengers. “We can easily surpass the NAIA in terms of flights as well as passengers load,” Cunanan said.
