PHOTOS: New Bohol Panglao Airport as of July 2018
Here’s the progress update of the New Bohol (Panglao) Airport which is 91.62% complete as of July 2018.
The New Bohol (Panglao) Airport is the country’s first eco-airport and dubbed as the “Green Gateway to the World”, environment-friendly and sustainable structures will be used, along with solar panels to be installed on the Passenger Terminal Building’s roof to cover around 1/3 of the airport’s energy requirement. The airport’s terminal can accommodate up to two million passengers in its opening year alone from 800,000 passengers currently being accommodated by the Tagbilaran airport.
Once operational, the country’s first eco-airport can accommodate seven (7) aircraft at one time, including large aircraft for international flights, and is expected to accommodate two (2) million passengers in its opening year.
Spanning 13,337 square meters, the new airport will initially have a 2,500-meter runway which can facilitate seven aircraft at a time, including long-range commercial planes for more international routes.
Secretary Tugade, along with the Department of Transportation officials, checked the progress of the construction works, from the runway to the passenger terminal, sewerage treatment system, and the perimeter fence, in order to make sure that the project will be completed as scheduled.
