EVERYTHING’S TURNING up roses for the Clark International Airport. Or, in industry context, it’s looking up, up, up for Clark.

The nation’s flag-carrier Philippine Airlines finally hubs at Clark, starting with Caticlan, Cebu, Davao, as well as international flights via Incheon in South Korea. To open later this month is Puerto Princesa and Busuanga.

A Clark-Los Angeles route is likewise reported – unofficially – to be in the works for PAL.

After an unceremonious exit over two years ago, Air Asia Philippines is coming back to its original hub in the country with thrice weekly Clark Kalibo flights starting March 27, 2017 and four times weekly flights to and from Davao by April 22.

In the next few months, the Clark-Shanghai route is expected to be spanned by China Eastern Airlines, which main base in Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport connects to all international and several domestic flights from the Chinese city.

And then last week, the CIA earned the distinction of being the first airport in the Philippines to be ISO 9001:2015-certifi ed, having passed a management system audit conducted by TUV Rheinland, an international certification body of the airport’s passenger facilitation process.

All these happening in the incumbency of Alexander S. Cauguiran, as yet officially unappointed president-CEO of the Clark International Airport Corp.

Think. Just think how much loftier Clark could fly in the firmament of the aviation industry when Cauguiran finally gets his working papers duly signed by President Duterte.
