Facing the increase of COVID-19 cases within the Philippines, the Clark International Airport in Pampanga, Philippines announced a suspension of all commercial flights effective April 3.

In an advisory, the management of the airport – considered an alternative to the Ninoy Aquino Airport in Manila – temporarily suspended flights without mentioning a specific target date of a resumption of services.

The airport stated that while commercial flights will be suspended, it will be open for essential cargo and flights supporting efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Due to continuing travel restrictions being implemented in our country and abroad as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19, air carriers flying out of Clark International Airport (CRK) have announced the temporary suspension of all commercial flights,” the advisory stated.
