From NLEX-SCTEX, passengers can take the SCTEX Clark North Exit into Clark Freeport Zone. A few meters away will be the first rotunda, where they can take the third exit and straight onto CRK Airport Road.
Those who are already inside the Clark Freeport Zone can take Gil Puyat Avenue towards Mabalacat Gate. There they will reach a roundabout where they can take the first exit towards CRK Airport Road leading straight to the new terminal.
Directions to Clark International Airport New Terminal can also be easily found on mobile apps such as Google Maps and Waze.
Point 2 Point (P2P) bus services from Trinoma and Paranaque City, taxi services from within Pampanga, and other car rental services are also available.
The new terminal boasts a 110,000 square-meter area and will host 18 aerobridges when completed. It features state-of-the-art facilities that situate itself as a premier Asian gateway for tourism and business alike. CRK also features a touchless passenger check-in experience. Self-service, self-check-in kiosks, and self-bag-drop systems are in place for passenger safety and autonomy.
