The SPIA Development Consortium has secured a contract to build the Sangley Point International Airport in the Philippines. The consortium comprises Cavitex Holdings, House of Investments, Samsung C&T, MacroAsia, Munich Airport International and Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong. The airport project is expected to cost around USD11 billion.

A USD10 billion contract for the airport’s construction was previously awarded to China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC) and MarcoAsia. This was withdrawn in January 2021 after documentary requirements were not met.

Sangley Airport, located in Manila, will be able to accommodate 75 million passengers annually, relieving congestion at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The airport will have two runways with an option to expand to four runways and an annual capacity of 130 million passengers in the future.

Additionally, a 4 km connector road, with provisions for rail connectivity, and an integrated logistics and aviation support facilities will also be developed as a part of the Sangley Airport Project.
