BICOL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - Most Scenic Airport, Getting Closer to Completion


WATCH: BICOL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT—GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO COMPLETION!

The BIA, which has been dubbed as the country's 'Most Scenic Gateway,' due to its proximity to the iconic and majestic Mayon Volcano, now stands at 68% OVERALL PROGRESS RATE!

After almost 11 years of delay, the current status of the BIA project as of 02 September 2020 is as follows: Package 2A, covering the construction of landside facilities and other buildings, is 83% complete; and Package 2B, covering the construction of the PTB and runway extension, as well as the construction of the taxiway, drainage, and other site development works, is 38% complete.

Slated to be completed within the year, the airport is expected to welcome two million passengers every year, which will beef up air traffic and tourist arrivals in the region.

Once fully operational, this airport is envisioned to be a major factor in transforming Albay province, and the Bicol region into an economic powerhouse.

Indeed, the 'MOST SCENIC GATEWAY' IS NOW MAKING GREAT HEADWAY!


Bicol International Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Bikol, Bikol: Pankinàban na Palayogan kan Bikol) is an under-construction international airport that will serve Legazpi, the capital city of Albay and the regional center of Bicol Region, in the Philippines. The airport will still have the IATA and ICAO code of the old Legazpi Airport, despite being located in nearby Daraga.


The airport is located in Daraga, an adjacent city of Legazpi. The ₱3.5 billion project is on a 200-hectare plateau 15 kilometers from Mayon Volcano. Some sources name the airport Southern Luzon International Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Katimogang Luzon). It will replace the old Legazpi Airport, which is only 2 to 3 kilometers from the volcano.


Once opened, it will handle an estimated 2.2 million passengers every year.
