This is a construction project for a new airport as an ODA L/A by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) * on Panglao Island, Bohol State in the Philippines. This airport has been constracted to meet international standards for a safe, passenger-friendly airport.
The Philippines is an island country consisting of over 7,000 islands, making air transportation essential. In recent years, the amount of passenger traffic has shown significant, rapid growth. Expansion of the existing airport in Tagbilaran City, Bohol State would have posed environmental and social problems, so it was decided to construct a new airport.
The construction of the new airport includes a 2,500 meter runway and a terminal building that can accommodate 3.4 million passengers per year (expected number of passengers in 2030), and airport special facilities, such as Baggage Handling System, Aeronautical Ground Lighting System, Air Navigation Facilities, Airport Security System, and so on. In addition, we have built the new airport using the "Eco-Airport" precept, which takes into account the local the environment, deploying technologies such as a solar power generation system.
This is the second joint project between Mitsubishi Corporation and Chiyoda for airport construction. The first was the new Ulaanbaatar International Airport in Mongolia.
