DOTr to Complete Upgrade of More Airports

[smartads] MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has committed to complete the upgrade of 27 more commercial airports in the country before the term of President Duterte ends in 2022.

The DOTr said the government in the first half of the Duterte administration has completed 17 commercial airport projects. These include the construction of two new international airports – the Lal-lo International Airport in Cagayan and the Bohol-Panglao International Airport – and upgrading of 15 existing gateways.
