If both are retained, who will use where ? Foreign carriers might move to Bulakan, but I don't see either PAL or Cebu Pacific moving without the other. Reportedly, SMC and AirAsia have been in discussions. PR could hub some flights in Bulakan to take advantage of connection possibilities once they ...Jump to post
Come to think of it, at least there it seems that many of the proponents of the proposal to close NAIA are Clark supporters. Meanwhile, Bulacan supporters ironically don't seem very vocal about NAIA, with many of them even saying that Bulacan can complement rather than completely replace NAIA. CRK ...Jump to post
One thing that's kind of hard to understand is why the folks over at SkyscraperCity seem to be rather insistent on shutting down NAIA, instead of embracing a multi-hub strategy for Manila (i.e. turn NAIA into something like LaGuardia or London City, Bulacan as the main international hub ala JFK or ...Jump to post
