Philippines Steps Closer For A Fresh And Superior Airport In Bulacan

Philippines is on a stage in getting a new and bigger international airport which will stand in Bulacan. Original protagonists San Miguel Corporation (SMC) proposed the project that has a total cost of P735.63 billion and will likely replace the Ninoy International Airport (NAIA) in Manila.

The addition of this project will lessen the congestion of the Philippine airport NAIA as Bulacan is in between Manila and the newly expanded Clark International Airport in Pampanga.

Though the project is a long process, a new airport will be a big boost in the Philippine economy, will attract more investments and added tourism. The airport will be built in 2,500-hectare land in Bulakan, Bulacan.

The international airport in Bulacan is under the public-private partnership proposal and San Miguel Holdings Corporation (SMHC) will construct the airport. There have already been negotiations and franchise agreement between the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and SMHC.

The development of the new airport in Bulacan includes main passenger terminal buiding/s with airside and landside facilities, an airport toll road and four runways which is expandable to six. The construction will create lots of local jobs and addition jobs once it is finished.

The airport will also be connected to the main expressways that will have an easy access to PH capital Manila and central / northern Luzon. Filipinos always wish for a new and superior airport and are step closer in achieving it.
