Work on Bulacan airport to start in October

San Miguel Corp. (SMC) is planning to break ground on the P734-billion Bulacan airport project in October, according to the Department of Transportation (DoTr). SMC CFO Ferdinand Constantino said that the Bulacan airport project will proceed despite the COVID-19 crisis, since jobs that will be created through SMC’s projects will help reset the economy. San Miguel Holdings Corp. (SMHC) is the SMC subsidiary handling the project, which involves the construction of a 2,400-hectare aviation hub with four parallel runways (expandable to six runways), eight taxiways and three passenger terminal buildings.
