thanks, midwestguy. The New Iloilo Airport is definitely the best looking and most sophisticated airport in the country today. The New Iloilo Airport is just awaiting international flights coming from our neighbouring Asian countries early next year. Watch out for it and it continues to unfold the new Gateway to the Heart of the Philippines.


New Iloilo Airport !

Super jet to touch down in RP next week

MANILA, Philippines -- The superjumbo Airbus A-380 is set to touch down in Manila next week, becoming the largest aircraft to ever land at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Airbus' test aircraft MSN009 will land at the NAIA on October 11 at 2:45 p.m. as part of a route proving tour, a 150-hour four-leg tour around South and North America, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific aimed at showing the new plane's ability to complete long-haul flights and the receiving airports' capacity to accommodate the superjumbo.

Airport security chief Angel Atutubo said the Manila International Airport Authority has been preparing since 2006 for the arrival of the superjumbo, a twin-deck aircraft that could seat 40 percent more than the typical 525-seater jet.

“It is a test flight that will check the capability of our runway, ground handling and our emergency services, if we will be ready,” Atutubo said on Tuesday.

He said NAIA's runway 06-24, the main runway used for touchdowns and takeoffs of international flights, with a length more than double the A-380's required 1,500-meter landing strip, was more than sufficient for the superjumbo.

He said meetings with the aircraft maker have been going on since 2006 in preparation for the test run in Manila.

After NAIA, the superjumbo will fly to the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Pampanga's Clark Special Economic Zone on October 12.

The A-380's technical tour will entail “checks on standard aircraft maintenance and behavior, as well as typical airport operations and compatibility, confirming the aircraft's readiness for entry into service,” Airbus said in a recent release.

The aircraft earlier flew to Bogota, Colombia. It is currently completing a three-city tour in the United States.

Airbus' giant jet lands at Philippine airport

Manila - Airbus' giant A380 jetliner flew into the Philippines on Thursday as part of a series of test flights to show the jumbo aircraft could fit in existing runways in Asia. The A380 flew in to Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport from Melbourne.

Test pilot Peter Chandler said the landing went smoothly and the plane was able to taxi to a parking area without any hitches.

"The landing had no troubles at all, absolutely no problem," he told a press conference.

The visit to Manila was part of a series of test flights to show the jumbo jet could "fit in today's airport infrastructure," according to Airbus senior marketing manager Julian Manhes.

The A380 can accommodate as many as 850 passengers if the plane is laid out in all economy-class seating.

Airbus already has 165 orders and 20 commitments from 15 airlines for the giant aircraft. The first delivery to Singapore Airlines will take place next week.




Airport staff have their picture taken next to an Airbus A380, the biggest commercial airliner, at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila October 11, 2007. The A380 is on tour to demonstrate its performance under normal airline operating conditions.

Philippine Aviation and Airports

Things to look forward to in the RP (Republic of the Philippines), aviation wise...


PAL (Philippine Airlines) applies for rights to begin services to San Diego International Airport in California, from the US Dept. of Transportation.

Hawaiian Airlines will begin daily non stop services to Manila on April 14th 2008,from Honolulu.

.....and the disappointing issues of our country's aviation problems etc.

Lufthansa decides to end services to Manila (pending), leaving KLM the only European carrier to provide direct services from Europe.

Manila, Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Terminal 3... still not open? Err.... what's new?

Okay I'll leave it for people to continue to post....

New Bacolod-Silay Airport of International Standard is open today

Vol. XXI, No. 120
Friday, January 18, 2008 | MANILA, PHILIPPINES

New airport opens today

BACOLOD CITY — Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday celebrated mass and blessed the new P5.6-billion New Bacolod (Silay) Airport, which will start commercial operations today.

Vice-President Manuel "Noli" L. de Castro will inaugurate the new airport this afternoon together with Transportation and Communication Secretary Leandro R. Mendoza, Minister Akira Sugiyama of the Japanese embassy, Japan Bank for International Cooperation representative H. Togo and local government officials.

The old 37-hectare airport in Bacolod, which had been in operation since 1936, was shut down after the last flight last night.

Still opposing the new airport, Bacolod Mayor Evelio R. Leonardia, who was in the last flight, said the Torres and Lizares families who donated the property for the old airport, have the legal right to regain the property if it is no longer used as an airport.

"According to the donors — the Lizares and Torres families, the property is meant for an airport. So that if it is going to be sold, or used for something else, they may have a legal right to take it back," he said.

The Lizares and Torres families donated 17 hectares for the airport. Tycoon Lucio C. Tan owns the other 20 hectares.

Retain old airport

Mr. Leonardia was in Manila to submit a petition for the retention of the old airport to Executive Secretary Eduardo R. Ermita. The petition was supported by 100,000 signatures.

The new airport, located about 20 kilometers north of Bacolod in Barangay Bagtic, Silay City, occupies 187 hectares, has a 2,000-meter runway, 15 check-in counters, and three pre-departure areas that lead to three tubes.

It has a cargo terminal building and a fire fighting station, located right next to the control tower

New Bacolod-Silay Airport of International Standard to be declared international gateways

New Bacolod, Iloilo airports to be declared int’l gateways

By Carla Gomez
Visayas Bureau
First Posted 18:07:00 01/17/2008

BACOLOD CITY, Philippines -- The Philippine government will declare the New Bacolod-Silay and Iloilo airports international gateways open to flights from neighboring Asian countries, Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza said Thursday.

“We are declaring both airports international gateways because they conform to international standards. And if there are airlines that want to bring in international flights they can operate immediately,” Mendoza said.

The two airports, he said, met standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The P5.6-billion New Bacolod-Silay Airport in Barangay (village) Bagtic, Silay, begins domestic flight operations Friday.

Declaring the airport an international gateway will bring progress to Negros Occidental, Mendoza said, citing as an example the vicinity around the Cebu International Airport, which has become an industrial zone.

“They are building two golf courses around the new Iloilo airport and declaring an area as an industrial zone,” he said.

Mendoza said the Kalibo airport, which had been declared an international gateway, now has daily flights from Korea, with a few flights also coming in from China.

The Philippine government is also opening other airports, such as the Lagindingan Airport in Cagayan de Oro City, replacing the existing Cagayan de Oro and Iligan airports, which sit on plateaus with very low cloud ceilings, Mendoza said.

The Lagindingan Airport is 40 kilometers from the Cagayan de Oro Airport and the Santa Barbara Airport in Iloilo is 22 kilometers from Iloilo City.

Mendoza also disclosed that the Philippines would host the Association of Southeast Asian Nations transportation ministers meeting for 2008.

“The more international destinations we have, the better for the country because we are going to be competitive,” he said.

The secretary, however, said the old Bacolod airport could not be upgraded to international standards because it did not have the space and could not be compliant with ICAO standards.

The ICAO requires the distance between two airports to be no less than 40 kilometers. The distance between the Bacolod and Silay airports is only 18 kilometers.

New Bacolod-Silay Airport, Negros Island, Philippines

January 19, 2008
Negros now open to world, endless opportunities: Noli
BY CARLA GOMEZ


(A rainbow rose over the New Bacolod-Silay Airport yesterday morning as if ushering the dawning of a beautiful day for Negros Occidental.)

SILAY CITY – The P5.6 billion New Bacolod Silay Airport that has opened up Negros Island to the rest of the world will bring in endless growth opportunities for Negros Island , Vice President Noli de Castro said yesterday.

De Castro led the inauguration of the new alternate international airport here yesterday afternoon also attended by Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza, and Japanese and Negrense officials.

The 72-year-old Bacolod airport was closed down Thursday evening after the last flight out.

“The endless opportunities that this new and modern airport could bring to Silay City and to Negros Island does not mean that Silay's gain is Bacolod 's lost,” de Castro said.

The world class airport will allow both cities to move on, he said, because “now Bacolod can concentrate on its competitive edge in commerce, business and the service sector.”

“Being a highly urbanized city Bacolod has a great potential to develop central business districts and commercial mix-use areas,” he said.

The site of the Bacolod City airport given its location and developments in its immediate surroundings can be transformed into a business district, the vice president said.

This is the same tack Iloilo City took when its old airport was closed down to give way to a new one in Cabatuan town, he pointed out.

Megaworld has purchased the old Iloilo airport site for development into residential and commercial areas, he said.

“When one door closes another opens, but only if one uses this saying in a practical and prudent way,” de Castro said.

The new airport in Silay City will bring economic development not only to Negros Island but the rest of Central Visayas , he said.

NEW ROAD

De Castro said work on the extension of the new airport runway by 500 meters to accommodate larger aircraft from the United States and Europe will begin in the second quarter of this year.

In fact with its current 2,000 meter runway it can already accommodate a 300-seater Airbus A-330, Mendoza said.

Aircraft of that size from around the world can already land at the Silay airport now, Mendoza said.

De Castro said Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella, chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, has also informed him that work on a 10-kilometer road that will connect the Bacolod circumferential road to the new airport will begin this year.

This will reduce travel time from Bacolod to the new airport to 15 minutes, de Castro said.

‘GIVE CHANGE A CHANCE'

Acting Negros Occidental Gov. Isidro Zayco appealed to all to give the new airport the full support that it needs so that it can operate at its maximum potential.

The operations of the new airport will directly benefit Negros Occidental as it would encourage more tourists and investors to the province, he said.

Zayco said he echoes the appeal of the airport officials to give change a chance. “This is a change, no doubt for the better,” he said.

A NEW ‘TOWN'

Silay Mayor Jose Montelibano said with the new airport the world finally comes to within reach of Negros .

It will also change the landscape of the vicinity around the airport from sugar farms to industrial economic zones. We will see technology-based industries that will create jobs for thousands of Negrenses, he said.

A new town or center of business and development for Silay City will be built around the new airport since the old historical structures in the city proper cannot be demolished, Montelibano said.

Congressmen present at the inauguration rites were Nergos Occidental Representatives Julio Ledesma IV (1 st District), Alfredo Marañon III (2 nd District) Jose Carlos Lacson (3 rd District), and Jeffrey Ferrer (4 th District), Puentevella ( Bacolod ) and Mikey Arroyo (Pampanga, 2 nd District).

BEST LIVELIHOOD

The new airport is the best livelihood project for the third district and the province of Negros Occdental , Lacson said.

Puentevella, Marañon III and Ferrer also all said the new airport would be a boost the economic growth of Negros Occidental.

Sugar Regulatory Administrator Rafael Coscolluela, former Negros Occidental governor, said “After all the sentimentalism is done and finished I hope people will realize that a new airport of international standards will ultimately be beneficial to Negros Occidental, Bacolod City and Western Visayas .”

Coscolluela said he understands some people feel it is inconvenient to have to go all the way to Silay to get to the airport but many of us who travel to Manila are used to going to the airport there three hours ahead of our flights.

“It is a matter making adjustments, let's think about the long term. This will be beneficial to all of us in the long term, this opens up the door for international flights, which would never ever have happened if we retained the Bacolod airport only,” he said.

The new airport was built on a loan by the Philippine government from the Japan Bank of International Cooperation that was represented yesterday by Hiroshio Togo . Also present was Minister Eiichi Oshima of the Embassy of Japan.

Oshima said with the new airport in Silay, gives Negros Occidental a new basis for future growth.

He pointed out that Negros Occidental is the fifth biggest domestic airport in terms of passengers in the Philippines , which have increased by 50 percent in the last 10 years.

The province needed a bigger and more efficient airport to meet its growing demand, and the new one in Silay will boost economic activity and quality of life for Negrenses, Oshima said.

Meanwhile, an SM City Bacolod airport shuttle located at its south transport terminal departs for the new airport at 4 a.m., 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a fee of P100 per passenger.*CPG

Anyways, I only got as far as the departure check-in area. Airport execs did not want reporters tailing their tour for the lawmakers, among them Satur Ocampo, Ruffy Biazon, Teddy Boy Locsin, and Abby Binay.

Ang ganda nga sana. I especially like the V-shaped beams. Sleek, minimalist, and yeah, closed. haha! Sabi ng Miaa, it opens within this year. Sana lang talaga. Sayang eh."
