Angeles, a City Reborn
Angeles is a highly urbanized first-class city in Pampanga. It is an autonomous city that was previously dependent on the largest U.S. military installation outside of the U.S. mainland, Clark Air Base. Mount Pinatubo’s eruption in 1991 caused the premature base pull out. Today, the city is home to the Clark Freeport Zone and is served by the Clark International Airport, constructed at the former U.S. military base. The city has also completely recovered from the devastation caused by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo and has been deemed as one of the best places to live in the Philippines in 2008.
Angeles today is the hub for tourism, aviation, industry, and business. It is also Central Luzon’s gaming and entertainment center. This place is the origin of the delicious dish called “sisig,” a method of preparing pig heads that were bought cheaply from the commissary when the U.S. base was still in the city. The pig’s head is boiled until tender, then grilled or broiled before being chopped into very small pieces for frying, and is usually served on a hot plate with lemon juice, onions, and chillies.
Angeles Airport & Airlines
Tigerair Philippines, formerly called SEAIR, used to have flights from Manila’s NAIA to Clark International Airport, but has been stopped. There are no direct flights from Manila to Angeles, which can easily be reached by bus or taxi, as it is only about two hours away from Manila.
While the airport generally serves the Angeles area for domestic, international, and cargo flights, it technically serves Manila as well. It becomes the alternative airport when NAIA is congested or there is inclement weather in Manila that makes landing difficult or impossible. The airport is operated and managed by the government-owned Clark International Airport Corporation.
