Newly built Clark Airport terminal opens dedicated "OFW Lounge"

The newly completed Clark International Airport terminal building dedicates a transit lounge exclusively for the use of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). 

OFWs can stay, rest and relax at the lounge – free of charge.

"Clark’s new terminal is envisioned to be an international gateway that all Filipinos can be proud of, not just because of its state-of-the-art facilities, but because it reflects Filipino values," said Vince Dizon, Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

"Kasama na po rito and pagtanaw ng utang na loob. OFWs make a huge sacrifice for our country. The OFW Lounge is our small way of saying thanks, and reassuring our kababayans that we value them, wherever they are in the world and especially here at home,” Dizon continued.

OFWs will also get to experience 24/7 self-service check-in and bag drop facilities to provide more flexibility in planning their departure as they are not restricted by counter opening hours.

The P12.55 billion new Clark airport terminal can accommodate 8 million passengers per year. It is expected to spur economic development and tourism in Central and Northern Luzon. (Photos: BCDA)
