Progress of the repairs done at the pre-departure area of the Clark International Airport passenger terminal

The Department of Transportation and the Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) announced that Clark International Airport will resume operations by 4:00 p.m. today, less than 48 hours after damages at the terminal building caused by an earthquake that struck Luzon Monday were repaired.

“Clark airport is business as usual, from counters to manifest to boarding gates,” Jaime Melo, CIAC president, said.

The clearing operations and repairs immediately started Tuesday morning inside the pre-departure area after a huge portion of its ceiling collapsed.

“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.

Power, flight information systems and CCTVs have been fully restored in time for the resumption of flights.

On Tuesday evening, cargo carriers FedEx and UPS already serviced flights via Clark, also an indication of the soundness of the airport's runway.
