    The announcement was made by Alexander Cauguiran, president and chief executive officer of Clark International Airport Corp. during the Clark Development Projects Stakeholders Roadshow here of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority on Thursday.
    PAL will fly daily to Caticlan and Cebu, four to Davao and Busuanga, and three to Cagayan de Oro. In January, PAL will start its daily flights to Incheon.

    According to Cauguiran, these flights were transferred by PAL to CRK from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay City in response to President Duterte’s call to decongest air traffic at NAIA and land traffic in Metro Manila.
    “If half of the eight to 10 million passengers in Central and northern Luzon travel to Metro Manila and fly via Clark, that would be less than four million vehicles in the national capital,” Cauguiran said.

    Moreover, The Department of Transportation said it would address this by building a railway system linking the capital district, either via Quezon City or Naia itself, to Clark Airport.

    Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said that the project, where plans have yet to be finalized, would be finished before the term of President Duterte ends in 2022.
