With the World’s most perfect cone as backdrop Bicol International Airport is probably the most scenic airport in the world.
The presence of the world’s most perfect cone, (Mayon Volcano), the world’s smallest fish (Sinarapan) both in Albay and biggest fish (Whaleshark) in Donsol, Sorsogon;so many serene beaches and dive sites make Bicol Region become one of the most desired tourist destinations in the country.
Having a good grasp, Albay Governor Edcel “Grex” Lagman through the Provincial Engineering Office and the Provincial Planning and Development Office is up with a futuristic plan of improving the only international airport in Southern Luzon.
A total of P180M will be spent in constructing the BIA phase 2 expansion project.This will extend to cover 1village(Burgos) in Daraga and 2 villages (Maninila and del Rosario)in Camalig town affecting 43 houses.
Prior to receiving the P180M cash assistance from the Department of Transportation the Provincial Government of Albay has already started to prepare the necessary requirements for the project.
It is expected that by the first week of February MGB clearance will be secured for the commencement of the project. (Jv Navarro Verdeflor Jr via Albay PIO, photo credits to the owner)
