Government of the Republic of the Philippines acting through its Bases Conversion and Deveopement Authourity (BCDA) has awarded EPC contract by way of preparation of the Preliminary Design and Detailed Design as well as the construction of the New Terminal Building (NTB) and all Ancillary Facilities comprising of landside and other support facilities.

The new terminal is designed to handle air traffic growth of 8 million passengers per annum. The proposed design learns from the reference design. Itoptimises the major terminal’s components in order to improve processing times that enhance passenger experience, following international standards. The terminal evolves towards afundamentally intuitive and easy to navigate space which is convenient to use, spatially immense and well equipped with a variety of passenger and commercial facilities, well connected with other modes of transportation.

To achieve that, the terminal building organises its node area and the pier by allocating its processing facilities considering passenger flows and experience. The terminal’s node area consists of the entrance screening, check-in, security screening, passport control, immigration, baggage reclaim hall, baggage make up area, customs and arrivals hall. These facilities are distributed on the terminal’s three levels. In the transition between the node area and the piers, commercial facilities are developed where retail, F&B and lounges are located.

Architecturally, the concept of the proposed design aims to celebrate the local heritage with an inspirational, advanced, state-of-the-art architecture, embracing local flavors that will be recognized internationally. The architectural appearance of the external form deviates from the reference design in order to align with the proposed internal layout.
