In January 2010, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Administrator and CEO Armand C. Arreza expressed interest in closing Subic Bay International Airport in favor of converting the area to a logistics hub. This was due to the closure of FedEx's delivery hub, which is located within the airport complex, and the planned expansion of the nearby Diosdadao Macapagal International Airport
Spirit of Manila Airlines expressed that it will start operations at Subic Bay International Airport to start by August or September 2011 providing flights between Subic and Macau.
The Port is operated and managed by the SBMA. It covers the fenced area of the former U.S. Naval Base located in the southwest of Luzon Island in the Philippines surrounded by the municipality of Subic and Olongapo City in Zambales, and Hermosa and Morong in Bataan in concurrence of their Sangguniang Bayan pursuant to Section 12 of RA 7227. The harbor is facing the Zambales Mountain Range in the west and the Subic Bay opening up to the South China Sea. It is northwest of the Bataan Peninsula and southwest of the Zambales Province. Subic Bay Freeport is 110 kilometers north of Manila. Manila Bay and the Bataan Peninsula separate SBF from Manila. The mountain ranges around the Subic Bay area and the deep natural harbor provide excellent and protected anchorage. In addition, these features make the Port of Subic naturally sheltered from typhoons as well as from the effects of the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo
Subic Seaport has a natural harbor of up to 13.7 meters covering a total area of 41 hectares. It has a total of 12 operational piers and wharves. It presently has three characteristic container terminals, a fertilizer terminal at the Boton Wharf, a grains bulk terminal at the Leyte Wharf and a general containerized cargo terminal (Marine Terminal) at the Sattler Pier.
A new container terminal with two berths is now being constructed through the Subic Bay Port Development Project (SBPDP). The two new berths has a total capacity of 300,000 TEUs each, enough to accommodate all types of sea vessels- from small crafts, commercial yachts, ferry boats to container vessels, cargo ships, oil tankers and aircraft carriers, even the Panamax and post-Panamax class container vessels.
For the water enthusiasts, the club rents yachts, jet boats, speedboats, pontoon boats, platus and equipment for many varieties of water sports. There is escorted wreck diving available guided by professionals in the diving business.
The Clark Subic Marketing team was treated to an unexpected surprise. After our safari, when the time came for us to exit the park, it seemed as though one of the tigers was still hungry and decided to follow us to the main gate. This guy wouldn’t allow our driver to exit the gate. The safari vehicle driver attempted to loose him with evasive maneuvers, only to be outsmarted as he continued to stalk us, cut us off and actually run alongside the vehicle; great fun! Finally, the driver managed to shake our still-hungry giant feline as we made our exit from the secure safari area. This experience was one that will not be forgotten for years to come.
Embark on adventure tourism 100 feet above the ground, as expansive vistas entrench and bathe you in the lush wonder of the Subic rainforest. Experience jungle trails, not of the ordinary variety at all; no, these trails are situated 100 feet above the ground, consisting of platforms, suspension bridges and a motorized treetop canopy system; the world’s first such wilderness-ride.
This is nature’s sanctuary, enveloped in the realm of overgrown trees and jungle-foliage of various types. Subic Bay’s tropical rainforest is home to 3,000 types of trees and 10,000 varieties of plants as well as over one-thousand animal species, including bats, monkeys and wild pigs.
Breathtaking, is a word best used to describe the experience of riding canopies, walking cable bridges, and cable-sliding from one treetop to another while marveling at the vast array of surrounding flora, fauna and animal species. The keyword here is adventure; make sure you take friends and family members with you who are dear to your heart as you will long remember this bonding experience for a lifetime.
Part of the masterplan is the construction of Harbor Point, the pioneer Ayala Mall in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
More than 400 local and international companies wishing to locate at the Ayala Harbor Point mall were Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA)here by conducting a one-day, one-stop business processing designed to fast-track the accreditation of the new business locators.
On March 13, 1992, Philippine Congress passed Republic Act 7227 known as the Bases Conversion and Development Act of 1992, creating the Subic Bay Freeport in anticipation of the pullout of the US naval base facilities. Section 13 of RA 7227 created the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and freeport incentives that was lobbied for by Richard Gordon and inserted as an amendment during the bicameral committee hearings. Pursuant to such, Gordon, then the mayor of Olongapo, became the first SBMA chairman.
Mayor Gordon with 8,000 volunteers took over the facility to preserve and protect US$8 billion worth of property and facilities from looting when the last U.S. Navy helicopter carrier USS Belleau sailed out of Subic Bay on November 24, 1992 and started the military base conversion into a freeport like Hong Kong and Singapore. During its fourth anniversary on November 24, 1996, Subic Bay hosted the leaders of 18 economies during the 4th APEC Leaders' Summit who were all impressed with the emerging investment haven with companies like FedEx Express, Enron, Coastal Petroleum now El Paso Corporation, Taiwan computer giant Acer, and France telecoms company Thomson SA.
Richard Gordon was SBMA chairman until June 1998 when newly elected president, Joseph Estrada, issued Administrative Order No. replacing him with a political ally, former Bataan Representative and Harvard-trained Felicito C. Payumo. In 2004, Payumo was replaced by Francisco Licuanan as Chairman and Alfredo C. Antonio as Administrator. In 2006, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo appointed Commodore Feliciano G. Salonga as Chairman/Head of Agency, and Armand Arreza as Administrator/CEO of the SBMA. Exports had averaged a billion dollars since 1997, jobs generated reached more than 60,000 which was twice the highest number of jobs available when Subic Bay was still a US naval base. In June 2006, Hanjin Shipping opened over the weekend a P40-million modern training center in the Subic Bay Freeport. Hanjin's facility in Subic covers 349 hectares with total investments of US$1 billion. The project expects to generate at least 15,000 new jobs in Subic.
