The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) is planning to expand its modular construction system to two more airports across the country, following the completion of Borongan Airport in Eastern Samar.

The system aims to create more spacious, efficient, and passenger-friendly environments that meet international standards and accommodate the increasing passenger volume of airports.

The modular construction system, initially piloted at Borongan Airport, offers a sustainable approach to constructing terminal facilities with passenger amenities, minimizing construction waste and using pre-fabricated structural steel.

The additional modules will integrate seamlessly with existing structures, creating a cohesive and modern terminal space.

CAAP has identified two additional airports for the system: Laguindingan Airport, set to begin construction by December 2023, and Ozamis Airport, under consideration to augment passenger movement.

CAAP Director General Manuel Antonio Tamayo expressed enthusiasm for bringing the benefits of the modular construction system to more airports nationwide, prioritizing sustainability in development projects.

CAAP also aims to ensure that airports across the country are equipped to meet the changing demands of air travel while maintaining sustainability and innovation.
