Following the approval by the National Economic and Development Authority of the P12.75-billion unsolicited proposal for the upgrade, expansion, operation and maintenance of Laguindingan Airport, the Department of Transportation (DoTr) is looking at implementing Phase 1 of the public-private partnership (PPP) project starting next year until 2026 increasing its capacity from the current 1.6 million passengers to 3.9 million by the end of Phase 1 and to 6.1 million by the end of Phase 2.
