New Clark Int’l Airport Terminal Unveiled, Features Contactless Check-In and Bag Drop

The Clark International Airport in Pampanga just revealed its new passenger terminal building during an inspection made by President Rodrigo Duterte over the weekend.

Among its many new features to adapt to the new normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic are its contactless amenities, including a self-check-in. Passengers no longer have to touch the machines when checking in their flights and, instead, will only need to scan the QR code to complete the forms on their mobile phones.

Passengers will also check in their luggage themselves at the self-service bag drop counter. Measures were made in order to ensure that baggage weight limits aren’t exceeded — the counter will simply not work when bags are detected to be far too heavy.

The Clark International Airport will also follow a “silent airport policy” wherein announcements over the speakers will no longer be made.

According to the Department of Transportation, this new terminal is expected to open and cater to domestic and international flights before the end of the year. They also hope that it’ll provide more jobs and boost tourism in northern and central Luzon.

The new terminal began its construction in 2018 and was only finished this year. The airport is said to accommodate up to 8 million passengers annually.
