Now, its a good opportunity for Negrenses to enjoy the world-famous Boracay Island......

If these BCD-MPH flights prosper, there might be chances they would also have routes to the future Kabankalan Airport and/or Sipalay Airport (airstrip) for more island hopping adventure choices.

Airports and the DOTC priorities
TUESDAY, 21 FEBRUARY 2012 20:01 ZOILO ‘BINGO’ DEJARESCO III / FREE ENTERPRISE

Airports seem to have a great focus of the DOTC in the first PPP project batch touching on the expansion or improvements in the NAIA, Puerto Princesa, Bohol, Cebu, Caticlan and Tacloban airports.

Noticeably, the identified airports are also major entry points to popular tourist destinations, underscoring the government’s determination to hit the Philippine’s working target of 10 million visitors by 2015. Most recently launched was the catchy Tourism Slogan “More Fun in the Philippines,” firing the imagination of local tour operators to come up to par.

Fil-Am architect designing 2,000-seat Cebu Church–something that’s never been seen
Carlos Arnaiz, who’s also designing the Boracay airport, uses fresh eyes to keep from repeating himself

By: Alex Y. Vergara
Philippine Daily Inquirer
2:56 am | Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Style is one word Carlos Arnaiz, a Filipino-American architect based in New York, tends to avoid when asked to describe what sets him apart from fellow practitioners. And he has a good reason to do so.
Aranaiz was in Manila recently to oversee projects. They include the Shrine of Mary, a Catholic church to rise in a reclaimed area in Cebu, and the new and bigger Boracay International Airport, a public-private partnership between the national government and San Miguel Corp.
“What I try to do is produce something that hasn’t been seen before,” he said. “Sometimes, I hope it’s something that I haven’t seen before.”
Arnaiz, who finished architecture at Harvard University, has been practicing for a little over 12 years now. After working for a number of firms in the US, he put up his own architecture firm in Brooklyn, CAZA or Carlos Arnaiz Architects, almost four years ago, and now employs a dozen or so associate architects from various parts of the globe.
Other than in the US and the Philippines, CAZA has ongoing projects in Colombia (Arnaiz’s mother hails from there), Brazil and Taiwan. The company has also done projects in Korea, Malaysia and Costa Rica.
Master plan
Once finished, the Boracay International Airport, which is located in Caticlan, can accommodate more and bigger planes to and from the world-famous tourist destination.
“I’m quite excited about the Boracay project,” said Arnaiz, 35. “We’re not doing any construction yet, as we’ve just been through the master plan.”
But the overhaul will be massive. The terminal building will be just one of eight new buildings in an airport that will be expanded from 800-2,000 meters. People behind the project will have to work around the old airport without disrupting current operations.
“One of the main challenges is how to make a responsive airport without making it, particularly the terminal building, too generic,” he said. “An airport’s functionality requirements are quite intense, but how do you make a building that’s relaxed? A lot of today’s airports feel overwrought. They’re trying to do too much.”

This is it

The City Government of Sipalay has long been advocating flights to Sipalay Airport. I guess direct connection between Bacólod and Boracay with connections to Palawan partially closes the tourism triangle and open Sipalay Airport to countless possibilities.

2,000m? I guess this will be an airport serving A320's but if my memory serves me right, I heard that the final length will be 2,500? I am not sure but I read about it somewhere. I guess in the future, widebodies will serve KLO while A320's and turboprops with MPH.

2000 m probably he is talking about the initial length but most info I hear it's 2,200-2,300 m. It' good to know that the Architect is avoiding the too generic usual Airports it will be an exciting project as he mention this is a massive project a total of 8 Buildings.

Pag natapos na ang Boracay Airport for sure some of the World's famous Airlines will have direct Flights here lalo na pag ang Airport mismo ay isang Architectural Masterpiece magigising narin ang Northern Panay for all the opportunities but if they want to have a minimal cost well they have best option in KLO okey lang rin na maging option sa Aklan parin.

I think it's a great idea to connect popular tourist destinations- more like the Airline version of Hop on Hop Off.

An ideal domestic connection would be like this

Coron - Puerto Princesa - Caticlan/Kalibo - Bacolod - Cebu/Bohol - Naga

That's my dream island hopping... all places with wonderful beaches. I think these flights between Bacólod and Boracay closes that tourism triangle of white sand beaches, El-Nido/Coron–Boracay/Northern Panay–Hinobaan/Cauayan/Sipalay–Mactan–Panglao.

It would certainly be a hit amongst tourists...

I was in Boracay last 2008-2009 when SEAir launched their Caticlan-Puerto Princesa and Caticlan-Coron routes. So that means SkyPasada took over that route already?

SEAir MPH-PPS or MPH-ENI is seasonal. I wonder if the Sky Pasada MPH-PPS and MPH-ENI, with MPH-BCD is seasonal too but as of the Airline Manager's words, it looks like it is here to stay from then on but with frequencies adjusted from time to time.

It still does seasonal but seasonal in the sense that they will from time to time announce, unlike their Manila-originating flights that has it regular on summer. I like the plane they use in those destinations, Dornier 328 turboprop or jet, my favorite.
