NEDA OKs Php3.5-B Naga Airport project

The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board has approved Friday the P3.5-billion runway re-orientation project of Naga City Airport in Pili, Camarines Sur to address capacity expansion, approach, air safety and navigation issues.

Naga Airport is currently using a single directional approach with only one way for take-off and landing due to terrain issues (Mt. Isarog obstruction) at the other end of the approach. The runway reorientation is to enable dual-approach landing and takeoff with new international standard airside and landside facilities to meet the airport category rating and for it to address growing tourism demand.

The existing runway configuration (04-22) North-Northeast will be re-oriented 90 degrees clockwise to South-Southeast orientation to be constructed in San Jose Pili, Camarines Sur.

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is expected to build the two-kilometer (2km) runway to accommodate Airbus narrow bodied planes. Construction is slated to start in 2017 after detailed engineering design is done. It will be funded under the General Appropriations Act (GAA) to be introduce in 2016.

The airport project is slated for completion in 2019.

Meanwhile, P20 billion has also been earmarked by DOTC for airport expansion and modernization projects for Laoag International Airport, completion of Bicol International Airport and Tacloban International Airport, Siargao Airport expansion, Caticlan International Airport, Kalibo International Airport, Busuanga Airport and the San Vicente Airport.
