The Japanese government has provided the Philippines with P4.63-billion through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) ODA STEP Loan for the construction of Palao Airport in Bohol. The remaining P2.6 billion will be funded by the Government of the Philippines (GOP).

Japanese Ambassador Toshinao Urabe and Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario signed the loan agreements on Monday.

Panglao airport set for completion in 2017 will replace the much smaller Tagbilaran airport whose traffic has outgrown its size. The airport project is among the priority projects included in the 2011-2016 Public Investment Program (PIP) of the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC).

Under the proposed agreement, 81% or P5,765,238,000.00 should represent the loan proceeds from JICA and the remaining 19 % or P1,372,722,000.00 should be the counterpart of the Government of the Philippines (GOP), but what was signed was a loan grant of only for 4.6 billion.

The Department of Transportation and Communication has already allotted 72.59 million pesos for landside works of the new airport, including the cleaning of 216 hectares of land and the construction of a barbed-wire perimeter fence over 10 kilometers long.

Under the Forward Obligational Authority issued by the DBM, P867,112,000.00 is earmarked for 2013; P1,714,429,000.00 for 2014; P3,281,282,000.00 for 2015; P1,042,245,000.00 for 2016 and P59,892,000.00 for 2017.

Speech of President Aquino at the 5th anniversary of CAAP, March 25, 2013



[Delivered at the CAAP Covered Court, Old MIA Road, Pasay City, on March 25, 2013]



Secretary Jun Abaya; Director General William Hotchkiss III; Congressman Mel Sarmiento; Commissioner Ricardo David; Mr. Ramon Ang; Ms. Marianne Hontiveros; board of directors, former directors general, employees of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines; fellow workers in government; honored guests; mga minamahal ko pong kababayan:

Magandang umaga po sa inyong lahat.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines was born during a difficult time for our country. In 2007, our nation was floundering under a leadership that prioritized self-interest over public service; our people had lost their trust in government; and, to make things worse, in December of that year, the Philippines was downgraded from Category 1 to Category 2 by the United States Federal Aviation Administration—preventing our airlines from expanding their flights to and from the United States.

EU Ban to be Lifted by June

March 25, 2013



The European Commission Directorate General for Transport has invited the Philippine Civil Aviation Authority for a meeting in Brussels on April 16 to discuss the terms on the lifting of European Union ban on Philippine carriers to fly its airspace.


“We expect the lifting of the ban by June.”Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) Deputy Director General John C. Andrews said.

Meanwhile, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has notified its counterpart that it will be conducting its own separate audit this year. No date has been set.

France backs: Phl bid to have EU ban lifted

By Ehda M. Dagooc (The Freeman) | Updated March 23, 2013 - 12:00am

Quote:
CEBU, Philippines - The French Embassy to the Philippines will help negotiate in convincing the European Union (EU) to lift the ban against the Philippine carriers from European airspace.

French Ambassador to the Philippine Gille Garachon said in an interview last Thursday that the embassy is hopeful the ban will be lifted before the end of the first semester of this year or by June.

In April 2010, the 27-member European Commission decided to impose a ban on Philippine carriers from European airspace for the failure of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to reform the country’s civil aviation system.

“We are working very hard to have this ban lifted,” said Garachon.

According to Garachon, the Philippines has a big potential in attracting European tourists, including French travelers, because of its attractive beaches, diving destinations, food, rich culture and historical places, among others.

He hopes that once the ban will be lifted Philippine flag carriers like the Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air will be able to start off direct flights to and from European countries.

The French envoy added that because of the ban and lack of promotion from the Philippines to France, only few French people visited the country.

Last year, only 30 thousand French visited the Philippines.

The Philippines has diverse attraction and destinations that attract the French people, but he said the problem is most French travelers do not know yet about the Philippines, in general.

Thus, he suggested a more aggressive marketing campaign should be started, specifically if the ban will be lifted.

On the other hand, the ambassador said because of the positive economic performance of the Philippines, of which some French capitalists are aware of, interest in investing in tourism-related projects, infrastructure fashion and food are increasing.

In infrastructure, he said French companies are looking at venturing or participating into the transport sector such as railways and related projects.

There are also some French investors that are looking at investing into hotel and tourism-related establishments, anticipating the country’s potentials to grow in the tourism sector.

“The Philippines is developing very fast,” said Garachon adding that foreign direct investments are needed in order to support the growth of the country.

Meanwhile, the ambassador added that both countries are now also working to increase its trade exchanges, while trade volume is pretty limited.

“We are looking at doubling the trade volume between two countries in the next two years,” he said. —/JMD (FREEMAN)

I thought of that too. Since PAL and CebPac recently made some big purchases from Airbus.

Correct, the recent orders of PAL and CebPac combined brought in a revenue of $13.1B. $9.5B from PAL and $3.6B from CebPac.

To comply with safety standards, CAAP installed a Civil Aviation Safety Oversight Reporting and Tracking System as its main database management system. They efficiently implemented the Minimum Required Annual Inspection for all air operators, and revalidated the Air Operators Certificate of five international operators and several other air taxi operators and domestic air operators. They likewise established the Certificate Management Department to help our local carriers, such as Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific, to meet the standards of other countries and help them expand their routes.

Through these efforts, and through the stern, disciplined stewardship of Director General Hotchkiss, the ICAO lifted the Significant Safety Concerns previously issued to the Philippines. This took the effort of each person who works for this agency, and I extend my gratitude to all of you for your honest hard work. [Applause] For those of you who have been working for CAAP since its inception, and have endured its lowest points: Doesn’t this truly make you feel much better?"


As part of of the aviation community, we are saddened by comments, that people are not doing something about this long discussions of category downgrades and safety issues... I think this will answer those concerns

Discussion to acquire new Boeing 777 still pending--PAL

By: Darwin G. Amojelar, InterAksyon.com

The online news portal of TV5

Quote:
MANILA - The operator of Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Wednesday said its board has yet to discuss the plan to aquire new Boeing 777x aircraft.

"The plan of Philippine Airlines to acquire 20 additional new planes has not been discussed at the board level of PAL Holdings at this time," PAL Holdings Inc. told the stock exchange.

Earlier, PAL announced a $7-billion deal to acquire 54 planes from Airbus, with delivery to start this year.

Ramon Ang, PAL president, had said this was part of a plan to acquire 100 planes.

In the first nine months ending December, PAL Holdings cut its net loss down to P3.49 billion, an improvement of 4 percent from P3.63 billion the previous year as revenues rose 2.4 percent to P55.67 billion from the previous year's P54.38 billion.

Through wholly owned subsidiary San Miguel Equity Investments Inc., San Miguel Corp. entered into investment agreements with Trustmark Holdings Corporation and Zuma Holdings and Management Corp to acquire a 49-percent stake in PAL and budget unit Air Philippines Express for $500 million.

Trustmark and Zuma are majority owned by Lucio Tan.
