Policy framework put in place
To solve airport management issues,
a private consortium
was tasked with managing the airport's activities, including its expansion plans.
The consortium will be responsible for
managing the terminal
, developing the airport's commercial assets, and develop the new terminal.
Prior to this, a master plan was approved in 2003 by the Airport's board to
expand the airport
to full potential.
It included a terminal expansion conducted between 2006 and 2008 that cost $2.8 million and further extensions followed in
2010 and 2013.
The latest expansion plan proposed in 2014 involved the construction of a brand new
low-cost carrier terminal
(LCC) able to handle between 10 and 15 million passengers at a cost of $243 million.

How did it compete with other airports in the Phillipines
Clark Airport has served
passengers during the first half of 2019. This represents a 63% increase over the same period of 2018 and the highest ever mid-year number recorded in the airport’s 24-year history.
The airport accommodates around 1
daily passengers and 673 weekly flights.
Growth in usage and revenue from other areas (duty-free perhaps?)
The new expansion project for Clark Airport should contribute by 2025 to increase domestic and international
tourism by 3.7 percent
and tourism expenditure by 2 percent.
