Passenger traffic is expected to further increase in the Clark International Airport with the scheduled opening of the TriNoma-Clark Airport Lounge on January 15, 2013 improving connection between the Clark International Airport and Metro Manila and the rest of the South.
The TriNoma-Clark Airport Lounge will provide dedicated buses that will ply directly to the Clark airport on a 24-hour basis.
CIAC President and CEO Victor Jose I. Luciano said the Clark Airport Lounge is a dedicated bus service for Metro Manila passengers who will take their flights at the Clark airport.
"Connectivity to Metro Manila will be much improved when a dedicated first class bus service will start plying their route via TriNoma-Clark-TriNoma with affordable fare of only P200.00," Luciano said.
He said that four bus firms will provide the transportation namely: Philtranco, Genesis, Victory Liner and Five Star.
"The Clark Airport Lounge is fully furnished located at the TriNoma Mall which is open 24/7 and passengers would have a taste of the first class amenities of the lounge."
The Clark Airport Lounge is equipped with comfortable waiting area, secured luggage counter, and real-time flight status updates.
Luciano noted that, CIAC did not spent a single centavo for the lounge wherein TriNoma management provided it for free so as to provide a connectivity service to Metro Manila passengers taking their flights to Clark Airport.
"We would like to thank the TriNoma for their full support for the development of Clark International Airport."
On January 15, CIAC will formally launch the TriNoma-Clark Airport Lounge that will start plying the route to Clark airport in a bid to attract more Metro Manila and the Southern Tagalog residents to experience seamless travel via Clark.
During the launching, CIAC and TriNoma will sign a memorandum of agreement for the establishment of the Clark Airport Lounge that will provide service to passengers in Metro Manila and the rest of Southern Tagalog.
