Manila Bulletin - - News - By DAVE ALBRADO

TAGBILARAN CITY – Bo­hol pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials on Satur­day checked on the sta­tus of the New Panglao Bo­hol In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Gov. Edgar Chatto was given an up­date by the air­port’s project man­ager Edgar Man­galili of the De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion (DoTR).

Chatto and his team were toured around the pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal and the board­ing bridges.

Based on the re­port on the DoTR web­site, the air­port’s open­ing is pro­vi­sion­ally set on Novem­ber 22nd.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­port from the Capi­tol’s Ef­fec­tive De­vel­op­ment Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit (EDCOM), DoTR Sec. Arthur Tu­gade will be ar­riv­ing soon to check on the sta­tus of the air­port.

Man­galili said the fi­nal date for the in­au­gu­ra­tion will de­pend on the as­sess­ment of the Civil Avi­a­tion Author­ity of the Philip­pines (CAAP).

Chatto said it will be pru­dent not to rush the con­struc­tion since Bo­hol has been able to wait for 30 years.

“Naka­paabot gani ta ug 30 ka tuig nga ma­tu­man ang gi­in­gong tug­pa­haanan,” (We are able to wait for 30 years for the com­ple­tion of the air­port) Chatto said.

The gov­er­nor thanked the present and pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion for the sup­port and their con­tri­bu­tions in mak­ing the Bo­holanos’ dream of a new, mod­ern air­port a re­al­ity.

He par­tic­u­larly thanked the Duterte ad­min­is­tra­tion for the sup­port on the ad­di­tional work on the air­port.

The Panglao Bo­hol In­ter­na­tional Air­port is set to be­come the coun­try’s first eco-air­port and the coun­try’s new­est gate­way to the world.
