PHOTOS: New Bohol Panglao Airport is 90.14% Complete
Here’s the progress update of the New Bohol (Panglao) Airport which is 90.14% complete as of June 30, 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.
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.
