A New International Airport for Boracay

leave a comment »

A private company names Aklan-Romblon Properties Corporation (ARPC) is going to build an international airport very near the island of Boracay. The airport will be constructed on Carabao Island in San Jose, Romblon, and will cost some six billion Pesos. This means pump-boat travel time to the famous beach resort island will drastically be reduced. ARPC has already purchased about 120 hectares of land for the airport project and has also fenced its perimeter. Though still in design phase, detailed drawings will be submitted to the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communication within 60 to 90 days. No word yet as to when the airport will be operational but the DoTC’s office has already granted locational clearance for the project.
