Top News Clark Airport’s new terminal to open in July with contactless solutions By TTG Asia / Posted on 30 March, 2021 15:23 Clark International Airport (CRK)’s new terminal, which is set to be operational by this July, will deploy contactless solutions to assuage pandemic safety concerns. Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD), which operates and manages CRK, said the new four-storey terminal which will span 110,000m2 and be able to accommodate eight million passengers, will be one of “safety, ease and quiet”. Contactless solutions at Clark International Airport’s new terminal will enable a seamless traveller journey LIPAD CEO Bi Yong Chungunco revealed that peace of mind for travellers is a high priority for the airport, with design and processes at the terminal suited to meet those needs. She said: “We will operate a ‘silent airport policy’, meaning, it will be the quietest and most relaxing airport in the Philippines.” In line with that new vision, the airport will not make any calls for boarding and departures, save for emergencies. Travellers will have to rely on posted updates. Among the technology being deployed to eliminate the need for face-to-face interaction will be the common-use self-service kiosks and the self-service bag drops. Travellers can self check-in at these kiosks, without the need for ground staff. The terminal’s interiors will boast deeply intuitive design, such as the use of colour as consistent distinctions for certain uses. For instance, the use of green will point to international flights, while blue, domestic flights. The layout of halls will allow for a fuss-free passenger experience, while operational processes will be streamlined. The airport will also implement protocols for safe distancing and other necessary measures to ensure passenger safety in a pandemic.
