Clark airport to resume operations at 4 pm on April 24
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The Clark International Airport in Pampanga, which was damaged in the Luzon earthquake, will resume operations at 4 pm on Wednesday, April 24.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) announced the planned reopening in a statement on Wednesday.
"Clark airport is business as usual, from counters to manifest to boarding gates," CIAC President Jaime Melo said.
Power, flight information systems, and CCTVs have also been fully restored. But repairs will continue for some parts of the airport.
According to the DOTr and the CIAC, clearing operations and repairs started at the pre-departure area on Tuesday morning, April 23, "after a huge portion of its ceiling collapsed."
Flights to and from Clark were canceled due to the earthquake.
"May we remind the riding public to kindly check or coordinate with their respective airlines for confirmation of their flight schedules via Clark beginning April 24," Melo said.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
