Subic Islands Philippines

Subic is an area on the western side of Luzon refering to Zambales, Subic, Zambales, and Subic Bay. Subic is a 1st class municipality in the province of Zambales, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 63,019 people in 13,882 households.

It is a former home of one of the largest US military facilities outside of the US mainland, Subic Bay Naval Base.

The Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA), the gateway to Subic Bay Freeport, is a modern, international airport with 10,000 sq m passenger terminal. It's capable of handling 700 passengers at any given time and features the very latest technology for your security and comfort. The airport is the Asia Pacific hub of Federal Express.

The Subic Port is located Southwest of Luzon Island, Philippines. It is 110 kilometers North of Manila, facing the South China Sea and surrounded by Olongapo City and the towns of Subic and Morong. It is Northwest of the Bataan Peninsula and Southwest of the Zambales Province.

Subic Bay Freeport (SBF) has long been recognized for its strategic location, being at the center of the fastest growing markets in Asia. It is at the hub of the region, and all major cities in Asia are within easy reach either by sea or by air. (3 to 4 days by sea, 2 to 3 hours by air)

Aside from its strategic location, SBF has a deepwater seaport that is capable of handling the largest ships ever built, manifested when it once supported the mighty US 7th Fleet.

The Subic Seaport serves as a major alternative port for importers and exporters in the Northern and Central Luzon areas of the country to decongest the Manila International Container Terminal.

It has a total of 15 operational piers and wharves capable of servicing all kinds of sea vessels. Subic’s seaport and container handling facilities were recently enhanced with the operation of the Subic Bay International Container Terminal Services at the Sattler pier. The Freeport also has two operational port terminals: the fertilizer bulk terminal at the Boton Wharf and the grain bulk terminal at the Leyte Wharf.
