Fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. and Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corporation (LIPAD), partnered to fiber-power Clark International Airport (CRK), the country’s international gateway in Central and North Luzon, the two announced Wednesday, November 2.

In order to have a dedicated and hyper-secured internet service, CRK, the Philippines' first contactless airport, will be running on Converge’s enterprise-grade product, Direct Internet Access (DIA).

“Our partnership with LIPAD is proof of our commitment to provide the best fiber solution to the country’s critical transportation hubs," stated Dennis Anthony Uy, Converge CEO and Co-Founder.

"Our DIA enterprise product will support this gateway’s connectivity needs, for both travelers and commercial establishments,” he noted.

"We want CRK to be the airport of choice for travelers flying in or out of the Philippines," affirmed LIPAD's Chief Executive Officer Noel F. Manankil.

"Providing our customers with a seamless and hassle-free experience includes making sure they are connected all the time," he noted.

LIPAD Corporation, a special-purpose company established to manage the operations and maintenance of CRK took over in 2019.

The airport network managed 12 international and 19 domestic destinations, serving over 700 weekly flights from 20 airlines.

With the new 110,000 square meter, four-level building terminal, LIPAD seeks to expand this network as it adds more domestic and international points to accommodate over 8 million passengers annually.

The DIA enables LIPAD to manage the CRK's time-sensitive operational process via an uninterrupted connectivity service for continuous business productivity.

Direct Internet Access will also give CRK end-to-end pure fiber connectivity, which will give LIPAD high-speed, consistent and secure, connectivity.

"Helping Clark International Airport achieve world-class status not only encourages economic growth for our country but also opens possibilities and opportunities to every Filipino who passes by their gates to be part of the world stage," Converge Chief Operations Officer Jesus C. Romero concluded.
