New Camarines, Samar Airports Planned
MANILA, Philippines — The government is inviting consultancy firms interested to conduct a feasibility study on building a new airport in Camarines Sur, the fastest growing tourist destination in the country.
The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) is also seeking potential consultants to submit eligibility documents for a master plan study of Calbayog airport. The approved budget for the contract of each study is about P7 million.
The move to develop an airport in San Jose, Camarines Sur came in light of the provinces’ sustained growth in tourism.
In 2010, Camarines Sur overtook perennial favorites like Metro Manila, Cebu and Boracay as the top tourism destination in the country, according to the Department of Tourism (DOT).
Last year, 2.33 million visitors came to the province, up by 223 percent from 2008, visiting mostly the Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC) and the Caramoan Island.
