The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) awarded on 30 September 2013 infrastructure contracts for the execution of various civil works at four (4) airports in the Visayas and Mindanao.

The contract for the Semi-Permanent Airport Terminal Project at the Puerto Princesa Airport was awarded to D.G. Sarmenta Construction in the amount of P 21,495,653.43, which is lower than the bid ceiling of P 22,682,431.07.

“This will improve passenger convenience by allowing the airport to meet increasing tourist arrivals in the meantime that long-term upgrades are being done,” said DOTC Spokesperson Migs Sagcal. “We are aiming for this to be up by summer next year.”
