SMC partners with international firms to build Bulacan airport

CNN Philippines | August 13, 2019

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 13) — San Miguel Corporation (SMC) teams up with several global firms to create a world-class airport.

In a statement Tuesday, the diversified conglomerate announced that it has partnered with Groupe ADPi, Meinhardt Group, and Jacobs to design the New Manila International Airport (NMIA) in Bulacan. These international companies have also lent their hands in designing Singapore's Changi Airport, the US' Atlanta Airport, and France's Charles de Gaulle Airport.

The Department of Transportation's bids and awards committee is set to meet tomorrow for final deliberations on SMC's unsolicited proposal to build the new airport. The department is expected to award the project to SMC within the week.

Boskalis Receives €1.5 Billion Land Development Project for Manila International Airport in The Philippines

Boskalis | Papendrecht, 15 December 2020

Boskalis has received a Letter of Confirmation of Acceptance of Bid for the Land Development Design and Construction of the Manila International Airport (MIA) in the Philippines. The Letter of Confirmation was issued by San Miguel Aerocity Inc (SMAI), a subsidiary of San Miguel Corporation (SMC), one of the largest and most diversified companies in the Philippines. SMAI is the concession holder of MIA, which is a greenfield development aimed at serving the growing air traffic demands in the Greater Capital Region of Manila and will complement the air traffic operations at the existing and congested Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The MIA land development project has an estimated value of EUR 1.5 billion, making this the largest project in Boskalis’ history.

Peter Berdowski, CEO: “The confirmation of a project of this scale is fantastic news. As Boskalis, we have a rich tradition in creating land all over the world to the highest technical and environmental standards. We enthusiastically look forward to applying this know-how for the Manila International Airport land development. During the construction phase, we will contribute to the local economy and the new airport will bring further socio-economic growth to the greater Manila region. Through this project, we have secured the utilization for our large dredging vessels for the coming years.”

Approximately 1,700 hectares of land will be developed for the MIA airport in Bulakan, located around 20 kilometers north from the heart of Metro Manila in Bulacan Province. The land development project will be designed according to the highest technical and environmental standards to withstand potential large earthquakes, local typhoons and future sea level rise.

San Miguel gets 50-year franchise for Airport City project in Bulacan as bill lapses into law

CNN Philippines by Melissa Luz Lopez | August 13, 2019

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 4) — San Miguel Corporation bagged a 50-year franchise to build and operate a new international airport in Bulacan after President Rodrigo Duterte skipped signing the measure into law on time.

House Bill 7507 lapsed into law as Republic Act No. 11506 on December 20, 2020, records from the House of Representatives website showed, after Duterte failed to sign the bill within the 30-day period given for Malacañang's review.

The measure grants San Miguel Aerocity Inc. a franchise to construct, develop, operate and maintain the New Manila International Airport in Bulacan, which is seen to cater to travelers from northern and central Luzon. It is also located near the recently upgraded Clark International Airport in Pampanga.

This project is not a rumor anymore as it is good to go for Swiss challenge already.

• San Miguel JV with PAL again having San Miguel to have a management control of the airline as it targets to be a 5-star airliner by 2020.
• San Miguel to extend MRT-7 and/or establish an airport express that terminates at North Intermodal Transport Exchange located at Philippine Arena and MRT-7 City.
• San Miguel to build New Shoreline Expressway aka Manila Bay Integrated Flood Control, Coastal Defense and Expressway Project. Optional provision to integrate an airport shoreline express train.

Where is your source for this? AFAIK, from PAL insiders, Lucio Tan doesn't want San Miguel taking over management control of PAL again after the fiasco before wherein PAL became a semi hybrid LCC competing with PAL. In short, PAL had an identity crisis when SMC was managing it.

Again, where is your source that SMC will extend MRT 7 and/or establish an airport railway that will end at the ITX at Ciudad de Victoria? What's known is that the northern segment of C6 (Metro Manila Expressway) will be constructed by SMC as part of their MRT 7 project, from San Jose del Monte MRT 7 station to Ciudad de Victoria.

For me, this thread is premature. What if the government and SMC didn't agree with the terms of the concession agreement? If that scenario happens, then this project will not proceed to the Swiss Challenge stage. Remember, the NEDA Board approved this project, SUBJECT TO A FINAL REVIEW OF THE CONCESSION AGREEMENT. NOTHING IS FINAL AS OF THE MOMENT. IT WILL BECOME FINAL ONCE GOVERNMENT AND SAN MIGUEL AGREES WITH THE TERMS OF THE CONCESSION AGREEMENT. This thread is better to be locked for the meantime.

May 13, 2018
Ni Leandro Alborote

TARLAC CITY – Inihayag kahapon ni Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade na target ng kagawaran na matapos sa 2022 ang unang dalawang runway na itatayo sa bahagi ng Manila Bay na saklaw ng Bulacan.

Pinangalanan itong New Manila International Airport, na ilalatag sa Manila Bay, na nasasakupan ng Bulakan, Bulacan.

Ang konstruksiyon ng runway ay inihayag ni Tugade sa pagpapasinaya sa Phase 2 ng Plaridel Bypass Road, kamakailan.

Binanggit din ni Tugade ang suporta sa proyekto ngayong pormal na itong inaprubahan ni Pangulong Duterte, sa pulong ng National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board.

I wish this airport was a little bit further to the south so that it does not make Clark redundant and that residents of the south has better access since northerners already have Clark.

But this is infinitely more welcome that staying with NAIA only.

if they would make the access road in R10 in navotas then connecting it to Bulacan Bulacan accdg sa plano nila. hindi na rin masyadong mahihirapan ang mga taga south. Hindi na rin naman masyadong matraffic ang R10 at Roxas blvd sa next decade since madami ng tulay na gagawin plus harbor link ng NLEX-SLEX connector.

not sure kung may train station ditto though. maganda kung may spur line kahit commuter line lang or monorail.

There would be a new expressway from R10 going to this proposed airport. The said expressway will also connect with Metro Pacific’s NLEX Harbor Link R10 Spur and Metro Pacific’s proposed CAVITEX-NLEX Harbor Link expressway. Going by Google Maps, the proposed location is just beside Isla Pulo of Navotas. Those marshy lands along the Manila Bay coastline of Bulakan, Bulacan.

So, this is a reality this time around for sure???
It will soon become a reality once the government through DOTr and DOF gives there final approval of the proposed concession agreement. Government as per my insider sources is pushing for some clauses to be inserted to the concession agreement. Those clauses are a win win for both the government and the project’s Swiss Challenge winning bidder.

Bakit may ganyang project pa bakit du na lang nila ibuhos sa clard since ang laki pa ng space dun, nit unless ginawa na buong paligid na commercial area

Because Clark is far from the business districts of Metro Manila and from the majority of the passengers using NAIA. Clark is around 110 kms away from both Makati CBD and BGC, then add around 10-70 kms from the 2 business districts for the majority of NAIA passengers (those from the south). Don’t worry, Clark will still be developed and will still attract passengers coming from Northern and Central Luzon plus Cagayan Valley and Cordillera Region. Clark will be their gateway airport and also Clark Airport will serve the growing community of Metro Angeles (Mabalacat, Angeles, San Fernando, Magalang, Porac, Bacolor) and New Clark City.

Bulacan or whichever airport replaces NAIA will serve the current market of NAIA plus it will be sufficient for big expansions once passenger capacity demands such expansion, because the land area of Bulacan airport site is twice the size of NAIA

I highly doubt SMC would be willing to have management control of PAL again. Not only because they want to start their own airline, but because RSA and LT have wildly differing views on how to manage PR. The former wants them to adopt a hybrid LCC/full-service model (as we've seen with their A330 configuration) while the latter wants them to stay as a premium full-service carrier.

* Running an Airline is not about seat configuration but about market share and PAL was bleeding market share under LT.
* CEBPAC market sharein 2013 was 50% and was expected to rise to 60% after acquiring Tiger Air
* PAL posted a rare profit in 2014 due to the direction shift initiated by RSA (LT re-acquired PAL from RSA also in 2014)-->>http://business.inquirer.net/190313/pal-posted-rare-profit-in-14
* RSA was able to stabilize PAL's relationships with its flight steward union by concluding a CBA with FASAP in April 2013 (April 2013) -->> https://www.pressreader.com/philippines/the-philippine-star/20130426/282140698872606
2. The junking of avgas hungry 747 and using A330 (in 2013) with single class economy (414 passengers) configuration marked the return of PAL to its long abandoned MidEast route, made it competitive and thus net a modest profit per flight -->>https://gulfnews.com/business/aviat...us-330-300-plane-lands-in-abu-dhabi-1.1238418

I understand this, and am thankful for what RSA has done for PAL. However this has nothing to do with my original post regarding SMC re-gaining control of PAL.

as PAL is a legacy carrier. I doubt itll move its entire operation in bulacan. mas madaming mayayaman sa south compared sa north plus abundant ang cbds sa south. first and foremost yung mga international flights nila will surely stay in the last breath of naia. but definitely, we cant say na they wont duplicate their operations in bulacan.

I'm seeing airasia will grab this opportunity to expand their operations in the Philippines.

cebgo and palexpress would probably move here first to differentiate itself with their sister companies. otherwise, the opposite could happen for Cebu pac. Cebu pac will transfer to bulacan while cebgo will use all Cebu pac slots in naia.

----------
I hope bulacan airport reaches similar economies of scale like of naia. so the terminal fees will not get too high. although it is expected to increase from the current naias fee as this is still managed by private sector. income is a factor.

Well if NAIA closes down once Bulacan is open (and that's not entirely implausible, if the government/SMC really want to push it), then they'll have to.move out :p

As for PALex moving to Bulacan (should NAIA stay open after the new airport is finished), I just don't see it happening. Tourism is booming, and splitting operations between airports is not going to help tourists coming in who need to connect to a different flight.
