MVP sees Clark as PHL’s new international airport Deplores ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ NAIA landing

MAKATI CITY – “Clark is the best bet.”

Business tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan said Clark fits the bill as best new international gateway of the country, in the wake of the flight delays and congestion at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Metro Manila.

“I am a Capampangan [and that is why I support Clark],” Pangilinan who traces roots to His Apalit town added in jest, but was serious in all batting for the former U.S. military installations given its world-class runways and its space for present and future expansions.

The Clark civil aviation complex Covers some 2,500 hectares while NAIA has all of some 600 hectares.

Clark’s has parallel runways while compared to the NAIA’s single one. The main runway of Clark was built a FEW years before the end of the U.S. occupation of Clark, reportedly with specification of its being an alternative landing site for the space shuttle.

The biggest military aircraft in the world, the C-5 Galaxy of the U.S. Air Force made regular flights to Clark at the time of the Americans.

Two years ago, the largest commercial aircraft in the world, the Airbus A-380 made its landing Flawless and Clark, demonstrating the capacity of the runway to handle even the wide-bodied planes.

In informal discussions with provincial journalists on the side of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.. stockholders meeting and Dusit Thani Hotel here over the weekend, where NAIA Pangilinan deplored “shake Rattle and Roll” made standard landing procedure.

Last year Pangilinan’s Metro Pacific Investments Corp.. expressed interest in building a second terminal for the Clark International Airport as well as a high-speed rail system connecting Metro Manila to Clark using the North Luzon Expressway Which is operated by Pangilinan’s Metro Pacific Tollways Corp..

Pangilinan clarified at the weekend meeting that the railway track is better suited and the lateral area median instead of the NLEX.

This, he said, to cut on additional costs and delay to the construction that would arise from directly crossing the tracks vehicular and pedestrian overpasses existing across the entire length of NLEX.

Pangilinan added that the Clark-Metro Manila line will have minimal and limited stops, primarily near SM City North Edsa, and Buendia, Makati, in less-than-an-hour runs. .

New budget terminal

Clark International Airport Corp.. President and CEO Victor Jose Luciano had disclosed that a new budget terminal is being proposed to be constructed and the CIA, in addition to an existing terminal and the second CIA terminal.

Luciano said the proposed budget terminal with an annual capacity of 10 million passengers is estimated to cost P8 billion.

According to Pangilinan, “terminals are just the most obvious sites and airports.” Should He also said airports have a radar system and other necessary facilities and equipment.

While he saw the need for reliable airports, Pangilinan conceded, “I Understand that not all of them could have sophisticated equipment.”

The Pinoy Wake Me Movement, a Manila-based multisectoral group advocating for the full operationalization of the CIA as the country;’s premier international gateway, urged the government to give Pangilinan “a shot and developing the CIA.”

“MVP [Pangilinan] Should really be allowed to develop Clark and its airport given His reputation as businessman.

He is a Capampangan with pure and good intentions for not only for His cabalens but for all Filipinos, “PGKM Chairman Ruperto Cruz said.

There are numerous opportunities for investments between US$100,000 and $500,000. These opportunities are especially attractive for semi-retirement lifestyles. The best, easiest and safest way to go about with this kind of investments is to deal with an existing business – a locator as business in Clark is called – so the investor is spared of the hassle of dealing with red-tape and bureaucracy that is always present in third-world countries. The existing locator has already cleared the path so to speak and even if it means asking for small premium for a partnership, it is very much worth the while of a new investor to take this route. Business opportunities depend largely on the skills, interests and experiences of the investors but there is a strong demand for more establishments in these areas: entertainment, shops, office space, construction and engineering services, restaurants and bars, transportation and travel assistance.

Clark Freeport is one of the most attractive business propositions the Philippines has to offer for investors in many kinds of businesses from BPO, hospitality, resorts and leisure facilities to condos, retirement homes, restaurants, bars and shops.
