MANILA – The North Luzon Airport Consortium (NLAC) on Friday said it would provide passengers at the new Clark International Airport with “superior experience” drawing from the seasoned professionals of the Changi Airport Group.

The consortium of Filinvest Development Corp, JG Summit Holdings, Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions Inc and Changi Airports International's subsidiary Changi Airport Philippines bagged the operations and maintenance contract of the new Clark International Airport in December.

In a letter to the stock exchange, consortium member JG Summit said the group would spend about P6 billion to fit out the new terminal with a capacity of 8 million passengers annually.

“We believe in the potential of the Philippines and the Luzon region. Together with our partners and with the support of key stakeholders, we will develop Clark as the region’s premier gateway,” said Changi Airports International’s CEO Lim Liang Song.

"Building on the airport’s geographical position and catchment, we will grow the airport’s network and provide passengers with a superior airport experience including a brand new commercial area," Song added.

The project is expected to spur tourism, employment and economic growth in Central and Northern Luzon, the statement said.

Changi Airports International is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Changi Airport Group, the operator of award-winning Changi Airport in Singapore.
