How to get to and from the Clark Airport

Clark Airport (CRK), or the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA), in Clark Freeport, Pampanga has become a major gateway for several international low cost carriers such as Air Asia (Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu), SEAIR (Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok), and Cebu Pacific (Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Macau and Cebu).

SEAIR also flies from Clark to Boracay (it's the only airline that flies direct to Caticlan from Clark).

There are flights to Incheon, Korea and onwards to the United States with Asiana. While Spirit of Manila will soon be flying to/from Southeast Asia (Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur), East Asia (Taipei, Kaohsiung, Osaka, Hong Kong and Macau), the Middle East (Kuwait, Bahrain, Doha, and Dubai) and the Pacific Islands (Palau).

It's less stressful flying to/from DMIA since there are not that many passengers yet. The problem is the airport is at least an hour away from Metro Manila. So how does one get to/from the Clark Airport to the various tourist destinations?

Taxis from the airport can take you to Greater Clark (Clark Freeport, Angeles City and Mabalacat). But they're not cheap. Clark is a destination in itself, a culinary center and home to several golf courses, casinos and leisure estates. It's also a jump-off point for the Mount Pinatubo trek and the Mount Pinatubo Sky Tour. Also check out the Puning Hot Spring and El Kabayo. Plus there are a lot of hotels in Clark Freeport, Don Juico Avenue and Fields Avenue among many other areas. You'll never run out of things to do in Clark Freeport and Pampanga.

To/from Metro Manila, Philtranco has direct buses to the Clark Airport that leaves SM Megamall five times a day (2:30am, 7am, 11:30am, 1pm and 3pm). You can also catch the bus from their Pasay and Cubao stations. To/from Pasay, the fare is PHP350, and to/from SM Megamall and Cubao, the fare is PHP300 (schedule and fares at time of posting).

To/from South Luzon, from the Philtranco stations in Pasay and Cubao, you can switch buses to destinations in South Luzon, Bicol (Daet, Naga, Legazpi, Tabaco and Donsol), and even to the Visayas (Samar, Leyte and Panay) and Mindanao (Davao). Daet has a surfing beach, Tabaco has ferry services to Catanduanes, another popular surfing area, while Donsol is where you can swim with the whale sharks from November to May.

To/from North Luzon, you can now hop on a bus from the Clark Airport direct to various destinations in North Philippines. Partas has regular aircon and VIP buses to Ilocos (Laoag and Vigan) and Abra. If you plan to go surfing in La Union or Pagudpud, or explore Vigan, you can take these buses. If you want to go to Baguio, Partas drops off passengers at the Sison, Pangasinan station of Victory Liner. Partas VIP buses from the Clark Airport to Laoag cost PHP600 and to Vigan cost PHP484.

Genesis buses take passengers to Baguio City and Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija as well. From Cabanatuan, you could find buses to Cagayan Valley and onward buses to Ifugao (Banaue). You can also get buses to the rest of the Cordilleras (Banaue and Sagada) from Baguio City.

Update (03/10/2010): Clark Airport/DMIA claims to have a 24-hour direct air-conditioned jeepney/shuttle services to/from the Dau Bus Station and SM City Clark. It's Php45 for the Dau Bus Station, and Php30 from SM City Clark. But it seems many people say they did not see any.

In case you miss any of these buses, you can always take a cab to the nearby Dau Bus Station where buses to various destinations in North Philippines and Metro Manila (Pasay, Cubao, Sampaloc and Caloocan) depart from. Sampaloc in Manila is the station closest to Malate where most of the budget hotels and backpackers accommodation can be found. In Cubao or Pasay, you could switch buses for other destinations north or south of Metro Manila.

If you are bringing a car, you can park at the Clark Airport and catch your flight. Overnight parking is PHP90 for every 24 hours, and PHP30 for the daily rate.

Philtanco schedule to/from Clark is Pasay-Clark 06:30, 07:00, 11:30, 14:30 (except Thursday) Php350; SM Megamall-Clark 07:00, 07:30, 12:00, 15:00 (except Thursday) Php300; Clark-Cubao/Megamall/Pasay 12:00, 13:00, 16:30, 20:30 (except Thursday). Philtranco numbers are (02) 8518077 to 79; (0918) 2288831; (0928) 4768203; or (0920) 7981422.

There is now a free shuttle bus service for AirAisa guests from Clark Airport to Marquee Mall and vice versa. Buses leave Marquee Mall at 09:00, 10:20, 13:00, 15:00, 16:30 and 19:00 arriving in Clark Airport after 20 to 30 minutes. Buses leave Clark Airport for Marquee Mall at 10:00, 11:00, 14:30, 16:00 and 17:40. Another free shuttle is for Dau Bus Station, leaving Clark Airport at 21:20. For more information, contact Victory Liner at +63(2) 5597735 or info@victoryliner.com.

Update (03/01/2013): Trinoma now has the Clark Airport Lounge. Buses leave for Clark at 03:30, 08:00 and 14:45; and leave Clark Airport for Trinoma at 07:00, 12:00 and 18:30.

  2. Hi Ivan,

    First off, great blog! I found this to be very informative in planning my trip to Manila early next month.

    This is a little out of topic, but I have a question... what would you recommend someone to do if they had just one day to explore Manila?

    I am arriving in Manila on the 5th and staying til the 8th when I will leave for Boracay, but realistically I only have 1 full day for touring Makati City (where I will be staying)/Manila as I arrive @ Clark airport evening of the 5th and doing a full day trek to Pinatubo on the 7th.

    Appreciate any input you can give! :-))

  3. How long is it from Pasay or Cubao to DMIA?

    ReplyDelete
  4. @TravelBugMe, take a walking tour of Intramuros or Binondo. There are two great guides! Check out www.oldmanilawalks.com

    @Leigh, depending on traffic, Cubao maybe two hours, Pasay maybe three.

    Where is the Partas (DMIA-bound) bus terminal in Cubao? Detailed please; Cubao is fairly messy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm not sure. I suggest you take the Philtranco bus instead since they're the most reliable being the first to do that service.

    ReplyDelete
  8. A person needs to plan on at least 2-3 hours to arrive in Manila. To go to Baguio is about 6-7 and San Fernando is five hours. There is an expressway to Manila, however going north towards Baguio or San Fernando you will not go faster than 25 mile per hour.

    They want 350 for a Taxi to anywhere inside Angeles, while hte price of the same taxi in Manila would be 150 Pesos.

  9. my friend needs to urgently get back to Ilocos Sur but flights to Laoag are full.May I check the bus/taxi journey from Clark airport is how long & what bus is recommended. Or should she fly to Tuguegarao instead (will it be far by land to Ilocos Sur?) Thanks in advance for your help

  12. Inter-island flies Manila-Vigan. From Clark, it's 9 to 10 hours. A taxi will be too expensive. You can take the Partas De Luxe buses instead.

  14. Hi there Ivan. I would like to know if I can make it to my 11:45 flight if I take a 7am bus from cubao to clark? I will be taking Partas since it will be easier for me plus they also go inside DMIA (just like Philtranco). I appreciate any help since we will be leaving for Malaysia on Sept. 12. Thanks a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Depends on traffic. If weekend, yes. Weekday, since you have four hours to get there, yes unless something bad happens. Counters close exactly 45 minutes before departure.

    Hi Ivan,
    I am going to philipines via clark through airasia and arrived 1115am on Tuesday 29 Oct. After that I got to catch a plane at Terminal 3 Manila at 1715pm to go to Davao using Cebu Pasific. Do you think if i go by Philtranco bus provided by Airasia at Clark it will be enough time for me to go to Terminal 3? Or should i take the airport taxi?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Photo finish if ever. I'm not sure about traffic. When you get off at Pasay, you still have to take a cab to airport.

    Thank God that I found your blog. My friends and I plan to go Philiphine next month, 4d3n. Landing at Clark, and we plan to go Manila.

    From what I read from your blog, you are quite familiar with Manila, could you give us a guide on where to stay and where to go and how to go?

    Btw, from what I heard from those "aunty", the says Manila is quite dangerous to go if you don't have a local people guiding your or u don't have a proper tour guide, is that true?

    Very appreciate for your help. Thanks in advance.

    hi! im planning to book a flight with tiger airways going to singapore, if the flight is 3:30pm is it okay to take the 11:30 am bus? and i'll be taking a big luggage bag with me, will there be an additional charge for such? Or is there any bus company with route going to clark airport from pasay or megamall?
    If, lets say i'll be asking somebody to drive me from pasay to clark airport, how long will it take? Flight is at 3:30 pm on a weekday.
    thank you very much

    ReplyDelete
  25. There's a Philtranco bus from SM Megamall. The 11:30 a.m. bus should be fine. That gives you 3 hours to get to Clark which is usually just 1.5 hours from SM Megamall. So you have another 1.5 hours allowance for traffic.

  27. 7:30 a.m. should do it. But if you can go for 6:30 a.m. to be safe, that would be better. Malate is in central Manila. A cab to Intramuros would be best since you might get confused if you try jeeps. But I'm sure the hotel can give you directions to most attractions.

  30. @cristelene, I suggest you stay overnight in Clark if your flight is 7:30 a.m. unless you have a private vehicle that can leave Manila at 4:30 a.m.

    There are buses that leave Manila beginning 2 a.m. that pass by Dau. But getting from Dau to the DMIA at 3 a.m. is a problem. Maybe there are taxis but they will charge a lot.

  36. hi ivan, great article. i'd like to ask about the parking. is it operated by DMIA (clark airport) therefore in the actual airport area no need to take another ride from parking to the airport?

    or is it privately-operated not by DMIA? my friends find it convenient to bring a car instead because of the unholy travel hours most airlines have but are also concerned on the security.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's the airport parking so you get a government receipt. It's right in front of the terminal building. So you just walk.

    First & foremost, Great Blog!! I found this to be very handy in planning my 9days Philippines holidays in June 2010.

    Would appreciate your kind advise on how to travel to Baguio upon our arrival at Clark Apt.
    Planned 2nts @ Baguio, 4nts @ Manila and 2nts @ Boracay.

    Which countryside excursion is worthwhile partaking in Manila ie. Pagsanjan Falls, Villa Escudero or Taal Volcano/Tagaytay tours. I believe the above mentioned are full-day activity. Probably you could help recommend reliable operators for these tours.

    Appreciate any input you can give :o)

  55. There are buses to Baguio at the airport. Do check if they require a switch in buses. If they do, you could also try the Dau Bus Station. Ask around for the shuttle.

    The day-trips to Taal and Pagsanjan are both good. Just watch out in Pagsanjan since the boatmen can be pushy about tips.

    Regarding your observation that the air conditioned shuttle jeepneys were not available late at night, please be informed of the ff:
    - they are stationed at our terminal at least up to 9:00 pm daily in time for the arrival of Cebu Pacific flight from Singapore. They have tried to stay on til almost midnight to catch the arrival of the Asiana flight but were discouraged when no passengers used their service. And therefore decided to forego that late flight.

    We’ve just been there at the Dau Terminal to check on the facility and we’re definitely going to have a waiting lounge/reception area for passengers who would like to take the ac shuttle to DMIA. This will be up a few days from now. The delay has been due to the securing of permits of our accredited transport group to operate at the said terminal.

    We hope we have addressed your concern and we’ll keep you posted for updates.

  80. 1. From Subic, that would be too early in the morning. I'm not sure what the Victory Liner schedule is from Olongapo to Dau. But from Dau, getting to the airport will be a problem as well. Not sure if cabs are available that early. Might be best to sleep in Clark the night before.

    2. No direct buses to Baguio from Clark. Better to switch in Tarlac at Fiesta Terminal. Don't worry about jeeps in Baguio. Metered taxis there are very cheap and will be more convenient for your group.

    Hi Ivan,

    My flight will arrive at Clark at around 1 am in the morning. I figure I am better off finding a place to rest for the night before continuing on to La Union for surfing.

    What is my best bet for inexpensive and clean accommodation? Would Angeles be a good choice?

    Also, where would be a good place to exchange some money (US$)? I think San Juan or the towns nearby may be a little small and I may not get the best rates?

    At 1 am, I assume my choice of transport will be pretty limited?

    Thanks.

  85. Our family of 5 is planning a trip to Puerto Galera. Can anyone help to advise me on how to get from Clark Airport (landing around 11:00 hour) to Batangas Port where I can catch a ferry to Puerto Galera? Is there any direct bus service or inter city coach? Thanks

  86. Ride a bus to Cubao, then switch buses to Batangas Port. That would take you about 4 to 6 hours.

    My family and I, who are based in Manila, are catching a flight to Singapore on Christmas Day and we were quite apprehensive about leaving our vehicle at the airport's parking lot for around 4 days. After reading your response to queries similar to ours, we have come to understand however that it is quite safe to park and fly after all. We are not familiar with DMIA and we are truly grateful for your helping people like us through this site. Happy Holidays!

    would like to ask too, if it's safe to walk from arrival terminal up to exit gate since it's looks like 300 meters away(5 minutes) walk..(to save more).. hehe...as when reach the exit gate of the airport can wait for public jeepneys which can bring me up to main gate with a very low and fix rates..

  119. You will need to inform the guard at the gate that you will be leaving your car. They will direct you to the payment booth where you have to prepay your parking fees (Php90 for every 24 hours). You will be asked to show a copy of the car registration. Then you return to the parking area and show your receipt to the guard who will lead you to the secured overnight parking area. When you return, you will have to show the same receipt to the guard to claim your car. You may also be asked to pay the day fee of Php30 if you leave beyond the paid 24 hours on the day you return.

  138. Markus, I would think they do operate on Christmas

    June, yes it's a bit expensive. I'd say Php4000 to 4500 would be just right for van rental. Another option is to take the Philtranco bus to SM Megamall and get a cab from there. But your bus fare alone would be half the price of a van rental. So might as well rent a van.

    hi ivan,

    i found this blog so helpful and maybe u can help me too with my queries...

    me & my kids (aged 5&6) have also early (7am) flight to HK & i'm thinking of taking philtranco in cubao last trip (4pm) the day before the flight since it goes directly to clark airport.

    Prior to that idea, I have inquired that there are buses going to Dao for 24hrs (alongside victory liner in cubao) but needed to take one ride via jeepney to clark airport. This was my first option to leave cubao at 11-12midnyt for our 7am flight the next day. But thought twice since I have my 2kids with me and thinking of our safe trip. it's our first time to travel to Clark airport and not really familiar if there are 24hrs jeepneys in DAO going to clark airport.

    So I think I prefer the Philtranco bus which goes directly to Clark airport. But due to long waiting hours (almost overnight), i need other suggestions like nearest inn to stay overnight or if there are a better place for us three to stay while waiting for our flight. Is it advisable and bearable if we stay in the airport waiting for our flight?

    Need help and suggestions...

    Thank you! I really appreciate and looking forward for your response.

    :-)

  175. I've been getting a lot of questions about the 7 a.m. flight. Taking the 4:30 a.m. Philtranco bus should get you to Clark Airport by 6 a.m. Barring any delays, that will be get you in time before the check-in counter closes 45 minutes before the flight.

  176. Closest airport to the Ifugao Rice Terraces is Cauayan. Flights are from Manila. From there, take a bus to Solano and van to Banaue from there.

    Hi Ivan,

    I just want to ask if the airport secured parking area is a covered or an open one.
    Thanks for your helpful blog.

  187. It's an open one. Just mention to the guard that you'll be parking your car overnight and they'll give you instructions.

  188. Hey man. Thanks for the blog. I land at Clark at 4 a.m. and I want to book a flight out of Manila the same day. If I book a flight out of NAIA at 10:45, can I make it? It's on a Sunday so I hope traffic could be lighter. I could also book a flight at 3 pm, but it's more expensive and I don't want to be stuck at the domestic terminal at NAIA for hours.

    I had a not so good experience at CLARK airpport (DMIA). Firstly,the mode of transportation going inside the airport is so expensive. From the main gate of Clark to airport the Jeepney driver asked from us 500 pesos, I automatically rejected his offer. I asked the taxi driver he asked 350 pesos, without other choice I took the taxi. The distance from the main gate to airport is not so far, so 350 is still expensive. I just wondered why there taxi don't have a meter and a flag down?isn't it violating the rules?taxis should be metered right? and "pakyaw" system is not allowed, right?
