New Clark Airport Terminal Has All-Gender Restrooms


New Clark Airport Terminal Has All-Gender Restrooms

How do you feel about this story?


Clark International Airport’s (CRK) new passenger terminal building, which will open its doors to passengers and visitors by the end of 2021, will feature inclusive amenities, such as all-gender restrooms, nursing stations, and multifaith prayer rooms.

“Creating welcoming and inclusive spaces is at the heart of CRK. CRK will be a space where we embrace a positive atmosphere and treat everyone with utmost respect,” Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) president and chief executive officer Vince Dizon said in a news release Wednesday. “At CRK, it is about accommodation and inclusion for all.”

Restrooms at the new CRK terminal will provide all-gender accommodations for transgender, non-binary identifying individuals, and cisgender people traveling with opposite-sex children or elderly companions.

Other inclusive features include nursing stations and prayer rooms, each with a foot-washing area for Muslims.

Inclusivity and intuitiveness are among the key principles that the Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corp. (LIPAD) follows in terms of operating and managing the new CRK terminal.

With a vision to be the quietest gateway in the Philippines, LIPAD will operate a “silent airport policy” where passengers and visitors rarely hear boarding calls and instead rely on posted announcements for quick reference.

Colors and signage will guide passengers and visitors at the new CRK terminal. Facing Manila Bay, the carpets and chairs at the domestic area are in blue, while green is the color for the international area as it faces Mt. Arayat.

LIPAD, led by Filinvest Development Corp., JG Summit Holdings Inc., Changi Airports Philippines Pte. Ltd., and Philippine Airport Ground Solutions, Inc., won the 25-year concession for the operations and management of CRK in January 2019.

The CRK New Passenger Terminal Building project is the first hybrid public-private partnership project that was planned, constructed, and completed – from start to finish – under the “Build, Build, Build” program of the Duterte administration. (PNA)
