Pampanga is served by Clark International Airport (formerly Diosdado Macapagal International Airport ), which is in Clark Freeport Zone , some 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north of the provincial capital. The province is home to two Philippine Air Force airbases : Basa Air Base in Floridablanca and the former United States Clark Air Base in Angeles City. By 2015, the province has 2,198,110 inhabitants,  while it has 1,079,532 registered voters. 
Ancient Pampanga's territorial area included portions of the modern provinces of Tarlac , Bataan , Zambales , Nueva Ecija and Bulacan. Pampanga was re-organized as a province by the Spaniards on December 11, 1571. For better administration and taxation purposes, the Spanish authorities subdivided Pampanga into pueblos , which were further subdivided into districts ( barrios ) and in some cases into royal and private estates ( encomienda s).
Due to excessive abuses committed by some encomenderos , King Philip II of Spain in 1574 prohibited the further awarding of private estates, but this decree was not fully enforced until 1620. In a report of Philippine encomiendas on June 20, 1591, Governor-General Gómez Pérez Dasmariñas reported to the Crown that La Pampanga's encomiendas were Bataan, Betis y Lubao, Macabebe, Candaba, Apalit, Calumpit, Malolos, Binto, Guiguinto, Caluya, Bulacan and Mecabayan. The encomiendas of La Pampanga at that time had eighteen thousand six hundred and eighty whole tributes.
