San Miguel Corporation President and COO Ramon Ang has confirmed that the construction of the New Manila International Airport in Bulacan is expected to begin as early as October. 

Tuloy-tuloy ang ating investment to build infrastructure projects,” Ang told CNN Philippines reporter Rex Remitio

“In fact, nakuha na namin ‘yung approval or review ng DOJ [Department of Justice] doon sa Bulacan Airport.”

According to Ang, the company is now in the process of looking for financial closure with the financier banks. 

“Within the next two to three months, ‘yung Bulacan Airport, groundbreaking na rin,” Ang said. 

The megaproject is expected to boost the country’s tourism as it accommodates 200 million passengers annually. It will also help the local economies of provinces in Central Luzon where the airport is located. 

The government approved the project as part of its plan to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which was once considered the worst airport in the world.

The New Manila International Airport in Bulacan is touted to become the Philippines’ premier airport. Unlike NAIA’s two perpendicular runways, the Bulacan airport will have four runways, which will significantly lower traffic on the tarmac.
