Subic Airport 'too close' to Clark Airport for commercial operations: Philippine Airlines president

6 July, 2018

Philippine Airlines president and COO Jaime Bautista said Subic Bay International Airport may be "too close" to Clark International Airport to handle viable commercial passenger operations (GMA News, 05-Jul-2018). He commented: "For passenger operations, maybe it's too close to Clark but maybe for business jets, for general aviation, I think it will be good if Subic will be opened for that type of operation". Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade commented: "We are now closely looking at making the Subic Airport operational once again. We are in serious talks with the Subic authorities".
