Air

Clark International Airport is in the Clark Special Economic Zone and used by Asian low-cost airlines, which serve the following cities, among others:

Dohar Qatar Airways

Hong Kong Cebu Pacific, Tigerair

Kuala Lumpur Air Asia

Seoul Jin Air, Korean Air

Singapore Cebu Pacific Tigerair

In theory air-con shuttles meet all flights and drop passengers off either at the Clark Freeport Zone main gate (P30) or the Mabalacat (Dau) bus terminal (P50). If these aren’t around, look for a jeepney to the main gate, or take an overpriced fixed-rate taxi (P450/500 to Mabalacat/Angeles).

Bus

The cheapest way to get to Manila is to head to the main Mabalacat bus station in Dau, around 3km from Clark's main gate, where you’ll find scores of buses heading to Manila (fan/air-con P115/150, 1½ hours). There are also buses to Olongapo (P140, one hour) and just about anywhere else in North Luzon. Most depart only when they're full.

Otherwise Philtranco runs eight direct, air-con buses daily from Clark to Manila (Pasay, P350, two hours). Victory Liner has three daily buses to Cubao.

Getting to Banaue is trickier. If you’re comfortable changing buses, the recommended route is Dau–Cabanatuan–Solano–Lagawe–Banaue. The alternative is to backtrack to Manila and get the direct night bus to Banaue, or take a Victory Liner bus to Baguio (P300, three hours) and pick up a connection there.

A constant stream of jeepneys connects Dau and Angeles, a five-minute journey.
