All-Asia proposes P1-B rehab of Sangley runway
Resources and Reclamation Corp. (ARRC) said Wednesday it has proposed to rehabilitate the Sangley airport in Cavite to help decongest the capital's main airport.
AARC has submitted to the government its proposal to rehabilitate the runway for P1 billion, Wilson Tieng, ARRC president and chief executive said.
"We can finish the project in one year and will cost only P1 billion. This is a low-hanging fruit with significant benefits to the public since it will allow NAIA [Ninoy Aquino International Airport] to increase its runway movements from 40 takeoffs and landings per hour to around 60," he said.
An additional runway will boost tourism, trade and commerce aside from giving the flying public more flight options, he added.
"We have the funds and the technical support we need for this project. We hope to get the approval of the government soon enough," he said.
