San Miguel releases new airport design

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

San Miguel Corp. has released select design studies for the proposed New Manila International Airport in Bulakan, Bulacan.

The company is investing P734 billion to build a new, world-class international gateway that it envisions will be the best in the region at no cost to the government.

The proposed gateway will have four runways, with enough space to expand to six and will be capable of handling up to 100 million passengers per year. It will be part of a larger infrastructure ecosystem that will connect seamlessly with existing expressways and mass rail transits that will connect it to both southern and northern Luzon.

San Miguel said this project would be a long-term solution to the country’s airport congestion problem with the country’s main airport operating above capacity with no space to build additional runways.

“The NMIA will fuel trillions of dollars in economic activity annually for the country, bring in about 35 million tourists per year, create an estimated 30 million tourism related jobs, generate more than a million direct jobs and make lives better for the people of host province Bulacan and the rest of the nearby provinces,” San Miguel said.

The company said the airport would be built taking into large account sustainability and energy efficient measures.

It said that while it is still awaiting the notice of award from the government, it is already preparing to work closely with local government units, the communities and all stakeholders of the project.

“We can assure this early that this project is designed to decongest Metro Manila. It will provide more and better livelihood opportunities, not to take them away; ensure environmental balance and enhance resilience against calamities, because it’s the right thing to do,” San Miguel president and COO Ramon S. Ang said.

“We envision a brighter future for everyone, but we know what’s worth achieving isn’t necessarily easy. We will face rough waters along the way, that’s why we need everybody’s help and support to make this dream a reality,” Ang said.
