Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Clark International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, but busy international airport, preferred by some over Manila Airport, for its cleaner and more efficient services and facilities. Although the variety of shops and food concessions is limited, 24-hour dining options are available!
  • Located 85km/53mi from Manila. Approx 1h 11min according to Google Maps. While It takes 2-3 hours to travel between DMIA and the older NAIA Airport.
  • Restrooms are reportedly cleaner airside.
  • No designated smoking area, which means people indiscriminately smoking throughout the terminal.
  • An abnormal amount of security checkpoints, even just to enter the terminal! One reviewer described the experience as similar to “running a gauntlet”.
  • Exorbitant airport “departure fee”.

Where to Sleep

  • Overnight stays are not permitted inside of the terminal, but there is a small partially-covered area just outside of the lobby with seats, coffee machines, a 24-hour convenience market and a grassy area. Have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy for added comfort!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
  • Travelers are only allowed to enter the airport 2 hours prior to departure of their scheduled flights.
