Clark International Airport, formerly the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (IATA: CRK, ICAO: RPLC), is an airport that is an international gateway to the Philippines within Clark Freeport Zone, located 43.2 NM (80.0 km; 49.7 mi)northwest of Manila. The airport is located along the border between the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat in the province of Pampanga and is accessible through the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, which is connected to the North Luzon Expressway.
Clark serves the general vicinity of central and northern Luzon. The name is derived from the former American Clark Air Force Base which was the largest overseas base of the United States Air Force until it was closed in 1991 and handed over to the Government of the Philippines.
The airport is managed and operated by Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC), a government-owned enterprise; and the southern part of the facility is utilized by the Philippine Air Force as Clark Air Base.
