MANILA, Philippines - A new transportation hub catering to passengers using Clark International Airport will be established at the Robinsons mall in Pampanga.

Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) president and CEO Emigdio Tanjuatco signed the memorandum of understanding with Robinsons Malls general manager Arlene Magtibay and Genesis Transport Service marketing head Loren Zubia.

Under the partnership, a transport hub with a ticketing lounge will be located at the Bus Terminal of Robinsons Starmills Pampanga.

Tanjuatco said the new hub would cater to passengers and travelers using the Clark International Airport, which hosts Asiana Airlines, Qatar Airways, Cebu Pacific, Seair, Tiger Air, Jin Air, Dragonair, Air Asia Berhad and Tiger Air Singapore.

"We all aim to give our customers the best service possible and one of the concerns of the passengers right now is the mobility of the passengers from terminal to destinations, and we are thankful that we have partners such as Robinsons and Genesis to address that concern," he said.

Magtibay estimated there are around 500 buses from various points of Luzon that are ferrying passengers to and from Robinsons Starmills Pampanga.

"Now it will be much easier for passengers to go to Clark Airport by using the Robinsons Transport Hub," she said.

The volume of passengers using the Clark airport is seen to jump 150 percent to three million over the next two years from the current level of about 1.2 million passengers a year.
