San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has released design studies for the proposed New Manila International Airport (NMIA), which it is to build at Bulacan, just north of Metro Manila.
The company is investing Peso 734bn (US$14bn) to build a new, world-class international gateway to the Philippines. It will have four runways, with enough space to expand to six, and will be capable of handling up to 100 million passengers a year. The new airport will be part of a larger infrastructure ecosystem, connecting with existing expressways and mass rail transits that will link it to both southern and northern Luzon.
“This project is designed to decongest Metro Manila. It will provide more and better work opportunities, ensure environmental balance and enhance the airport’s resilience,” said SMC president and COO Ramon S Ang.
