President Benigno S. Aquino III led the ceremonial groundbreaking for the upgrading of Roxas City Airport Wednesday to put the airport to international standards.

Airport upgrades includes expansion and improvement of the passenger terminal building (PTB) and the extension of the runway to conform to type 3C airport standards.

The two projects are part of a P215-million Roxas Airport Development project. The project components are:
  1. Runway Extension and Passenger Terminal Building Expansion        91,150,000.00
  2. Site Acquisition                                                                                          18,000,000.00
  3. Runway asphalt overlay                                                                            24,240.000.00
  4. Runway Lightning System                                                                        91,150,000.00
  5. Crash, Fire, Rescue Tender                                                                       ₱ 33,500,000.00
Currently two projects, with a combined approved budget for contract (ABC) of P48.1-million, were advertised for bidding on October 19, 2012 and were awarded to contractor MAC Builders on December 28, 2012. Other projects for the airport are all in various stages of procurement.

The PTB expansion project will increase the existing 875-sqm terminal’s size by 626 sqm, bringing up the total floor area to 1,511 sqm and bumping up its design capacity from 153,000 passengers per year to 291,000 passengers per year.

Roxas Airport registered a traffic of 217,552 passengers in 2012. 

The runway extension, on the other hand, will lengthen the runway from 1,890 m. to 2,010 m. The additional 120 meters is designed to insure operational safety of critical aircraft operating at the airport which is servicing regular A320 planes.
