New Iloilo airport opens in June

Panay News. 5/8/2007

ILOILO City -- The New Iloilo Airport Development Project (NIADP) will officially commence operations in June, according to Economic and Development Authority OIC Regional Director Arturo Valero.

Valero said a smoother operation of the airport would be experienced towards the latter part of the year as it goes full swing.

Meantime it is expected that certain adjustments would take place both from the end of the passengers and even airport concessionaires because the facilities are more beefed up compared with the old airport.

Last week, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo informed Iloilo City Mayor Jerry TreƱas that she would inaugurate the new airport after the elections.

Valero said the facilities are almost fully completed, with the 99.9 percent accomplishment report made by Transportation and Communications Project Manager Eduardo Mangalili.

He added that it is but fitting that the President inaugurates the airport because it is a major or national project.

He further explained that there are no setbacks when it comes to the conduct of businesses because the new airport could even enhance economic activities with the opening of new services.
