New Manila International Airport

According to the Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, the San Miguel Corporation’s (SMC) Bulacan airport project will soon break ground within 45 to 60 days. When complete, the P740 billion project will serve as the newest gateway into the country by air. Aside from this, the New Manila International Airport will also help decongest the air hubs of the Philippines such as the Ninoy Aquino International.

The new airport is expected to serve several hundred travelers yearly and will have four runways, eight taxiways, and three passenger terminals. Aside from this, the facility will also come with great road access as SMC also has plans to fully integrate the airport into its highway system. While the airport itself is still under construction it will reportedly be operational by 2025. 

SMC also plans to construct a new 8-kilometer toll road that will connect the airport to the North Luzon Expressway as well as to the recently completed Skyway Stage 3. This will in turn also connect the airport to the South Luzon Expressway making it easier for travelers and tourists alike to get to the airport. Aside from this, SMC also has other plans for other roadways that will connect the Bulacan airport to the surrounding area. These include the NMIA Airport Expressway, Integrated Airport Toll Expressway Network-Northern Access Link, Integrated Airport Toll Expressway network-Southern Access Link, Integrated Airport Toll Expressway Network Central Access Link, East Metro Manila Expressway, and the Northeast Airport Expressway.

Once complete, NMIA along with its accompanying roadways will serve as a massive infrastructure network within the area. It is also expected that the new infrastructure will also unlock the economic potential within the area as well as to the provinces nearby. It will also help make trade easier and more efficient within the nation as well as outside the country.
