Panglao-Bohol International Airport Development Project

2 major Bohol projects get nod


By JUNE S. BLANCO

TAGBILARAN CITY — The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) board approved Tuesday last week two major infrastructure projects for Bohol. Bohol Gov. Erico Aumentado, who as president of the 1.7-million strong Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP) sits in the board, said these are the Panglao Bohol International Airport Development Project (PBIADP) and the Bohol Circumferential Road Improvement Project Phase 3 (BCRIP 3).

He said President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has ordered the immediate start of the airport project. She wants it finished in time for her birthday on April 5 by the year 2010.

Provincial Legal Officer Handel Lagunay said the slow procurement of the lots for the runway due to resistance of the owners is slowing down the project. In these cases, Aumentado said, the provincial government has no recourse but to initiate expropriation proceedings, although only as a last resort.

He will convene the Panglao Island Tourism Estate Inter-Agency Task Force tomorrow at the boardroom of the Manila International Airport Authority in Pasay City to provide solutions to the problems. Funding is not a problem, he said, because Transportation and Communications Sec. Leandro Mendoza has already committed to President Arroyo the availability of funds from his department for the purpose.

The project will be in two packages: One for the runway and allied facilities, and the other for the terminal building and allied facilities. Because two contractors will undertake the project simultaneously, Aumentado is confident that they can beat President Arroyo’s birthday deadline.

While the BCRIP 3 anticipates the heavy traffic when the airport will already be operational.

^ Hindi pa ako nakapunta ng Bohol ngunit sa tingin ko ay wala pa. Pero there are indefinite plans. Hmm.

EDIT: Hindi pa pala highres ang Panglao sa Google Earth? Anyway, tiningnan ko sa Google Earth, mukhang meron.

There is no need for a bridge when there are two causeways connecting bohol to panglao, which is separately by very shallow water of a few feet. Perhaps expansion of the causeway and its entry points is what you could have meant.

So the distance between Panglao and Bohol isn't that long as the one between Mactan and Cebu?

Not even. You can even wade from one island to another

As an fyi- Pacific Pearl Airways, a new Philippine start-up airline arrived Subic yesterday afternoon.

Pacific Pearl will cater to tourist destinations such as Aklan (Boracay). Will she cater to Bohol's burgeoning tourism industry by flying there?

Photographs of the plane as she was being ferried and on the first leg of her island hopping journey can be seen at http://www.pbase.com/philippineaviat..._pearl_airways . Photos were taken in Salinas, CA.

so... will this airport sit on Panglao island or in Bohol island?

would they expand or convert the domestic airport in Tagbilaran into the new international airport?

this will be a great for Bohol... specially when we get federalized...

Building Panglao International Airport would be a costly mistake.

Oh, so now the Philippines wants to be like Japan...

[Fact: Japan is building reclaimed airports left and right without thinking of the consequences of building such unneeded monsters. Examples of these are the Kobe Airport, Kansai International Airport, and the New Kita-kyushu Airport.]

Don't they realize that this airport will only become a white-elephant?! First and foremost, Mactan-Cebu International Airport is so close by?! If tourists would, indeed, come they'd most likely use MCIA than this facility. Why? Because in an economically-feasable standpoint, a direct flight to Panglao would obviously be a missionary flight-route by any foreign airline company/brand. And besides, the traffic volume ain't gonna be so big that it'd require a whole new airport to get built. Afterall, there's nothing wrong with flying to Cebu then proceeding to Bohol via fast-craft services.

They should just stick to expanding, rehabilitating or transferring Tagbilaran's under-developed little airport.

Tagbilaran's present airport is too small (trust me, it's REALLY small) and it can't be expanded because it is surrounded by subdivisions and other residential areas. There really is a NEED to transfer the airport.

In short, result would be "Mapanglaw."

i don't think...the airport project....was continued....it will compete with cebu.....its more exciting to just fly in to cebu and do the fast craft to bohol....as a side trip....and besides..there are few hotels in bohol...that is why tourists...are ushered into bohol early in the morning and return to cebu before dusk....

I think the only airline that would use this would be PAL and 5J
but it will be great for the Panglao resorts

I don't think it will. A significant number of foreign tourists visit both destinations to maximize their stay in the Philippines. Another thing, both destinations have their own established tourist market. And lastly, if there would be competition, it would be better because it would open a lot of doors for the improvement of both destinations.

I think you have a good point.At the moment there are new Airports in Visayas which are of International Standard and are preparing to cater international flights.This will spark competition among airports in Visayas.Even Bacolod and IloIlo new airport could hardly compete with Cebu.They should expand MCIA instead.It would be a wise move if they build bridges from Bohol to Cebu rather building another new International Airport.With the government limited budget they should spend and allocate it wisely.
