Gokongwei-Gotianun consortium wins Clark Airport O&M
The North Luzon Airport Consortium of conglomerates JG Summit Holdings Inc. and Filinvest Development Corp. has won the 25 year operation and maintenance (O&M) contract for the Clark International Airport in Pampanga.
The group, which also includes Singapore’s Changi Airport Philippines Pte. Ltd. and Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions Inc., bested the other bidder, X-Droid consortium, whose members are Angkasa Pura II, Globalport 900, Mazy Capital and Desco.
“I think the group of Changi airport won the bidding,” Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade told reporters.
The new terminal building can accommodate eight million more passengers per year when it opens in July 2020. It is also seen to help decongest the overused Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Metro Manila.
Clark International Airport is the second main gateway in Luzon and the first of the Duterte administration’s hybrid infrastructure projects.
It has an annual capacity of four million passengers.
