Bulacan Airport to be one of the biggest in the world, Ramon Ang says

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) president Ramon Ang revealed that the proposed Bulacan Airport is set to become one of the biggest airports not only in Asia but in the world.

In his speech during Far Eastern University’s 90th General Commencement Exercises where he was conferred the degree of Doctor of Business Engineering Honoris Causa, Ang shared his company’s plans in the field of infrastructure, particularly their proposed Bulacan Airport.

“The Bulacan Airport will be one of the biggest airports in Asia and the world,” Ang said.

The business tycoon underscored that the airport will help boost the country’s employment and tourism.

“It will have six parallel runways good for 200 million passengers equipped with mass transit. It will create 40 million jobs and bring in 20 million foreign tourists a year. A comparable country like Thailand with a population of 100 million brought in 30 million tourists,” Ang said.

Earlier, SMC submitted a proposal to build, operate, and maintain an airport in Bulacan for 50 years.

The 1,168-hectare airport can accommodate over 200 million passengers annually, more than triple than Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s (NAIA) capacity.

A city complex will also be built at a 2,500-hectare area along Manila Bay in Bulacan, Bulacan.

The airport seeks to attract more tourists especially from the Southeast Asia region.
