Diosdado Macapagal International Airport wins award

A bit of good news for Filipinos, it seems that the DMIA or Clark Airport has won the “2008 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Airport of the Year Award for airports serving below 15 million annual passengers”.  Frost and Sullivan congratulated the management of DMIA thus:

“From humble beginnings of serving only charter flights, the recipient’s recent growth has been nothing short of remarkable. It has positioned itself to become the future primary airport serving the surrounding major cities. The recipient’s performance in 2007 has raised its profile in the industry and has created a strong platform for its expansion plans towards the coming years.”

It’s nothing major of course, but every little bit of good press counts, and hopefully this encourages tourists who may be wary of Philippine airports that some of our airports are truly world class. Now if we could only fix up the airports in the capital, we’d be A-ok.

  1. Really? The last time I used DMIA was 14 months ago and it’s one airport where I don’t want to be stranded because of meager facilities in its departure lounge. I hope the government is really serious about its plans to make DMIA as a world class airport that would rival Changi or HKIA.

  2. Well, 14 months is quite a long time, maybe they’ve made some improvements since then? I mean it can’t be any worse than NAIA can it?

  3. You’re 100% correct. Nothing comes close to the “nightmare at NAIA 1” … and you have to pay the government 750 pesos, hehehe 🙂
