Push for 4 roads to Bacolod-Silay Airport

Negros Occidental and Bacolod City officials last night agreed to open the New Bacolod Silay Airport in Barangay Bagtic, Silay City, in November after the McKinley access road is completed, and to push for three other roads leading to it.

During a visit to the new airport Friday, the president said it could be opened already but there was some debate on when to do it coming from Bacolod, so she was leaving it to the local officials to decide among themselves when the opening should be.

She, however, aired her preference for a November opening.

Last night Rep. Jose Carlos Lacson (Neg. Occ., 3rd district), Rep. Monico Puentevella (Bacolod), Silay Mayor Jose Montelibano and Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia met and agreed to the November opening.

Gov. Joseph Marañon said he did not join the meeting because he does not believe that a debate on the opening is necessary at this point, and he is backing the President's preference for a November opening.

Lacson described the meeting with Montelibano, Leonardia and Puentevella as very cordial and fruitful.

It was a good start and he expects more meetings among them in the future to thresh out joint concerns, Lacson said. Hopefully the McKinley access road will be finished in 60 days and we will also push for its lighting all the way to the airport, he said.

LIGHTING, ALTERNATE ROADS

Leonardia said they agreed on the need to light up the McKinley road that passes through sugarcane fields to ensure the security of passengers coming in on night flights.

And they discussed the need to push for other alternate roads to lessen passengers travel time from Bacolod and the south to the new airport, he said.

Montelibano said they agreed that aside from the McKinley Road they will push for three other roads leading to airport.

These are the Nacab, Talisay road leading to the airport; the extension of the Bacolod Circumferential Road to the Silay airport for the passengers from Bacolod and the south; and the Kansilayan Road in Murcia passing through Granada, First Farmers, Bagtic, Tanza, Barrio Nangka leading to Victorias Milling Co. for trucks hauling sugarcane to sugar mills and plane passengers from Murcia, Ma-ao in Bago, La Carlota and the south, Montelibano said.

It was also agreed that the 2,000-meter runway of the new Silay airport be extended by 500 meters as pushed by Puentevella, Montelibano said.

Puentevella said the extension will allow the landing of larger aircrafts for international flights at the Silay airport.

Work on the extension can be done after the last flights, Montelibano said.

SELL THE OLD AIRPORT

Meanwhile, Presidential Adviser for Western Visayas Rafael Cocolluela said the Department of Transportation and Communication is discussing a public transport system from the airport and franchise applications have been made.

He also said the President is firm on her position that the site of the current Bacolod airport be sold when the Silay airport begins operations.

It is not possible to continue operating the Bacolod airport after the new one in Silay opens because the Philippine government has to abide by an International Civil Aviation Organization rule that no two airports can be 50 kilometers from each other, he said.

The president wants the old Bacolod and Iloilo airports sold so the money earned can be used for the improvement of other airports and vital infrastructure, he said.

However, it will be easier for the Assets and Disposition Committee to sell the old Iloilo airport site since it is solely government owned, he said.

He said half of the 40 has. Bacolod airport is owned by Philippine Airlines so some coordination will have to be made on its sale. PAL owns the front portion of the land where the passenger terminal is located.

Meanwhile, the new international-standard airport in Silay lies west of the scenic Kanlaon Volcano, and is reminiscent of the Legazpi Airport that has the Mayon Volcano as its eastern backdrop.

The P4.37-billion airport is to handle all-weather and night-landing operations. It is equipped with crash, fire, and rescue vehicles and airport maintenance equipment.

Its 2,000-meter long and 45-meter wide runway, and 678-meter by 23-meter taxi ways can accommodate A-320 aircrafts with a maximum of 160 passengers, while the apron can hold five aircraft at any one time with two on "hard stand" mode.

The terminal building, on the other hand, is equipped with three state-of-the-art passenger boarding bridges, flight information display system, mechanized baggage handling system for inbound and outbound baggage, security X-rays, elevators and escalators.

RE-POST

Flight checks set

The project director of the New Bacolod-Silay Airport said yesterday that as soon as the flight check is conducted and the aeronautical information publication on the Bacolod airport is amended, the airport in Silay can be fully operational.


Edgar Mangalili said there is no problem as far as the construction of the airport is concerned, but the flight check and the amendment on the AIP are among the requirements set by the Air Transportation Office.

The flight check is a normal procedure where navigational aids and markers as well as arrival and departure procedures are tested, Mangalili said.

The test, which will take at least three months to complete, will be conducted late this month on the first week of August. By then, construction of the access road will be complete and everything will be in place for the operation of the airport, he added.

The flight check could have been conducted earlier but the ATO aircraft had to undergo massive repair after it reached its maximum number of hours, Mangalili said.

For the scheduled flight check in the Silay airport, the ATO will rent an aircraft, either from Thailand or Japan, he added.


He also said the airport in Bacolod City is definitely scheduled for closure.

He said the equipment loaned by DOTC while the construction in Silay was going on, will be pulled out on the last flight out of the Bacolod airport.

Mangalili said DOTC purchased x-ray machines for passengers and baggage, three firetrucks, a runway sweeper, dumptruck, and a tractor mower that were temporarily loaned to the Bacolod airport until the new facility in Silay is operational.

He also said that the access road that will be constructed was not included in the airport plan and the loan agreement between the government and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation. While the runway on the new airport can accommodate A-320 aircraft with a maximum number of 150 passengers, it remains a domestic airport with international standard, Mangalili said.

The terminal will have three floors and will incorporate three air-bridges designed to accommodate aircraft of a size up to and including the Boeing 737 and the Airbus 330. The new Bacolod Airport is the first stage in the air transport infrastructure development strategy of the Philippines Department of Transport and Communications (DOTC) - Air Transportation Office. http://www.airport-technology.com/projects/bacolod

*******************************



For the airport of Bacolod-Silay, ADB/Siemens and Toshiba are working again together: ADB will deliver a full scope of AFL equipment, including a brand new computerized Airfield Lighting Control System (ALCS), tailored to allow control and monitoring functions of all the visual aids.

FUTURE PLANS

Government officials have hinted towards the eventual development of the new Bacolod Airport as an international airport; if this is to be done, the runway could be extended to accommodate larger aircraft by reclaiming land from the sea.

The carriers that will initially use the new Bacolod Airport include Philippine Airlines, Air Philippines and Cebu Pacific Airways. In addition, mixed passenger / cargo services will be provided by RG Air Charter Services, Gumayan Air Charter Services and Pacific Airways, while cargo-only service will be provided by Aboitiz Air Transport.

The new airport is designed to handle over one million passengers and 16,715t/yr cargo per year.

The Philippines government wants to promote a new growth centre for commerce and tourism - the San Carlos Corridor Development Plan - the objective of which is to develop a 45,000ha agro-industrial zone with an integrated satellite micro-city to serve as a gateway linking the capital cities of the Visayas region (San Carlos City, Bacolod, Cebu City and Dumaguete).

The new Bacolod Airport will play an important part in the transportation infrastructure required for the plan. source

Future expansion and re-development of Bacolod International Airport exhibited at Bacolod Gaisano City Supermall on July 2006 Araneta Street, Bacolod City.

New York-Bacolod route! C'mon, let's be realistic here guys that's absolutely not gonna happen...not even in a decades time.

Plus, a San Francisco route should pass through Manila or Cebu first before going to S.F. or L.A. and vice versa. Otherwise, they're gonna be missionary flights.

On the other hand, flights to Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul or Tokyo are feasible.

Sometimes, i feel sorry for people who braving himself to write the shitty proposal in this thread, because he's get too carried away with this airport. Excitement and positive attitude aside, be realistic, even MCIA is having hard time attracting airlines to fly, what more this new and small airport. First thing first, does Bacolod economically important enough for now? Please dont be silly again dont accuse me and cebu exultor whatever for not being patriotic. We're being realistic.

Ssangyong and Cebuano, thank you for putting in your thoughts. I have tried my best putting some sense in the posts here. As i am myself a Bacolod local, i am one in their desire for the development of our place. But it seems there have been several instances that they get carried away and sometimes posts ideas bordering on the outrageous. I cringe at reading them and embarrassed at times.

Cebu nga wala pang LRT at wala pa nga Cebu-LA flight, Bacolod pa kaya? Guys, wake up and smell the roses. Cmon, lets continue to dream but see to it that we do so with our feet firmly planted.

Kalaw-ay, ang guwa sina, tinikal/kayabangan.
