ADPI to carry out studies into new terminal at Clark International

Aéroports de Paris Ingénierie (ADPi) will carry out studies into building a new terminal at Clark International Airport in the Philippines.

The wholly-owned subsidiary of Aéroports de Paris, has been asked by the Philippine authorities to carry out a feasibility and development project for a new terminal.

Formerly known as Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, the former US air base located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, the site is about 90kms to the north of Manila.

Once completed, the terminal is set to reach a capacity of 15 million passengers per year.

The new terminal will dedicated to serving low-cost airlines, which is a major contributing factor in the growth of air traffic in the Philippines.

It will be built to improve access to the highly-populated northern part of Luzon, and relieve some of the pressure on, Manila International Airport, which is already saturated.

The aim is for it to better ensure the continuous functioning of the capital city, which is frequently affected by heavy flooding.

Guillaume Sauvé, CEO of ADPi, says: “Mainly dedicated to low-cost airlines, this new project, which is notable for its challenging requirements in terms of performance and efficiency, goes right to the core expertise of ADPi's teams.

"It will strengthen ADPi's foothold in Asia, where much of the growth in global air traffic is set to come from over the coming years."

The project is seen as an important component of the economic development strategy of the Philippines and will be financed by FASEP-Etudes, which is a development aid fund managed by the French government.

It will also contribute to the strengthening of economic ties between the two countries, and build on the foundations laid during recent official visits by the French Prime Minister.

Aéroports de Paris Group has maintained a presence in the Philippines since the 1990s, when it conducted studies and undertook the works supervision for Terminal 2 at Manila International.
