The Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) serves as the secondary gateway to Manila located about 2 hours drive north of it. The airport lies in the former US Clark Airbase in Angeles City which was later converted into an international airport after the departure of the US Bases in the early 1990's. The airport was named after the Philippines' 9th President, Diosdado Macapagal, father of the current president.
DMIA is envisioned to be the new premiere gateway to the Philippines to replace the now crowded Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) that is within the Metro Manila area. There is a Masterplan which forsees in the plans of two new terminals in the next 15 years or so.

Currently, DMIA mostly service low-cost carriers to nearby cities and other further ones. Only one terminal is in use, the second is planned to be completed in 2013, while the third is not expected to open before 2025, when the airport will be the largest in the country.
