The most-awaited Bukidnon airport, located at Maray-Maray, Municipality of Don Carlos, will reportedly feature a lovely pineapple-inspired design. This, according to Senator Juan Miguel “Migs” Zubiri.
In fact, Senator Migs Zubiri, a longtime friend, personally sent to me the design plan! He said that I have the first crack at this Bukidnon airport design plan so for that I’m truly grateful!
Sir Migs also disclosed that the groundwork is now 80 percent complete and a Php 630 Million bidding for the concretion will be held early November 2019.
He also personally told me that he is working on amending the national budget for next year in order to add at least ONE BILLION. He hopes that the project will be done by 2022.
In an earlier post, I shared that Don Carlos, Bukidnon Mayor Maria Victoria Pizarro shared a photo of the presentation slide that showcased the pineapple-inspired design of the airport.
A total of 105.42 hectares have been acquired for the said airport. Earlier reports from the Department of Transportation reveal that this airport in Bukidnon will be a Class 2 “feeder airport,” meaning it can serve propeller aircraft with a capacity of at least 19 seats. As soon as there’s sustainable demand, it will be upgraded to Class 1 which can allow the airport to accommodate bigger aircraft and more routes.
So far, Skyjet and Cebu Pacific have expressed intent to introduce flights from Manila and Cebu towards the Don Carlos Bukidnon airport.
