The construction of the New Manila International Airport in Bulacan will start by October, San Miguel Corporation President and COO Ramon Ang confirmed in a report.
The new airport, according to a CNN report, will feature four runways and can accommodate at least 200 million passengers per year.
“At tayo naman sa San Miguel, tuloy-tuloy ang ating investment to build infrastructure projects. In fact, nakuha na namin yung approval or review ng DOJ [Department of Justice] doon sa Bulacan Airport.
“At yung Bulacan Airprort, tinitingnan lang namin yung araw for the signing of the financial closure with the financer banks. So, tuloy na rin yan within two to three months groundbreaking na rin yan,” Ang said.
He described the project as ‘game-changer’ for tourism.
The plan for the creation of a new airport is to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which has been the main entry and exit point to Manila for air travelers.
