CLARK FREEPORT – Clark International Airport executives are keen on providing shuttle buses that will transport Metro Manila passengers to this airport for an affordable fare.
This is while the proposed high-speed railway project which would connect Clark and Metro Manila is still under negotiations.
According to Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) president and CEO Victor Jose Luciano, the putting up of shuttle buses is part of the airport’s program to improve their services and to attract more passengers by offering low bus fare.
“We are currently discussing plans with the Ayala and Trinoma top management for the shuttle bus that will transport passengers from Metro Manila to Clark,” Luciano said.
He furthered that discussion are already in the “advanced” stage with the bus companies.
Luciano added that his office is very hopeful that the shuttle service will start its operations before holiday season.
“It will help Metro Manila travellers who wish to travel via Clark,” he stressed.
According to Luciano, the Philtranco Bus Line is the only existing bus firm at present that services Clark passengers to Metro Manila.
“CIAC is looking for bus companies that can offer P200 fare from Manila to Clark,” Luciano said.
At least six low cost airlines have made Clark as their hub. These include Philippines AirAsia, AirAsia Berhad, Cebu Pacific, Air Philippines, SeaAir, and Jin Air. ●
