Clark Airport doing quite well

When an airline such as AirAsiaPhilippines stops servicing an airport and causes at least a quarter of an airport's passengers to 'disappear' overnight, you'd expect it to be a very bad sign for an airport.

However, Clark airport near Angeles City, roughly 80 kilometres from most of Metro Manila seems to be recovering from that shock if this article has any truth. Unfortunately Clark really needs a fast train to Metro Manila to rea;lly grow, and I cannot see this happening in the next decade, as it can be difficult to get from various Manila suburbs to Balintawak where the road tollway commences (and on occasion that tollway can also be very busy):

Air Asia Philippines still has flights between CRK and HKG. We have to wait until after Jan. 6 next year to officially say that the airline stopped servicing DMIA.

Tried the Clark Airport adventure a few times. I for one will not be using Clark Airport again until the connection between the airport and Metro Manila is substantially improved.
