Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

The JICA documents seem to have placed Tutuban and Alabang as the termini (or perhaps the "other" termini), actually. Though if not the terminus, then Blumentritt is certainly still an important junction between the North and South lines. Not to mention the LRT connection.

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

Don't all the railway developments connecting to NAIA indicate that the airport would be there for a long while yet :?: ..... https://media.philstar.com/photos/2019/02/27/subway-manila_2019-02-27_16-32-20.jpg https://media.philstar.com/photos/2019/02/27/subway-manila_2019-02-27_16-32-20.jpg One rep...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

On the topic of CRK's runways. Let's imagine that the airport management suddenly plans to build a new parallel runway. Where would they plan to build it?

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

While they'd likely end up with the 777x since their older 777s are reaching their retirement, and that it would be easier to transfer the crew to 777x, It's also very likely that they might end up with the A35K since Airbus seems to appeal to the Philippines more than Boeing for some reason (I love...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

It would be exciting if it was the 787-9, that would mean a second Boeing model in major airline service in PH. THe A330neo is also good though

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

As much as I'm against closing NAIA (for reasons such as how much jobs depend on it, and how there are still in-city airports like Taipei-Songshan staying open), it would be interesting to see what it would be redeveloped into. I think a Central Park is the best one because MM desperately needs one....

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

What was the point of granting OPS to the NAIA Consortium's 15 year concession if NAIA will just be closed and replaced by Bulacan, which will be completed in only six years? The NAIA Consortium wants to upgrade NAIA's capacity to 100 million pax per annum which in my opinion only seems appropriate ...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

While laudable, one can't help but feel that it is still a bit of a red herring relative to both airports. Who would want to fly into MNL or CRK only to commute back to either general location with all their baggage in tow? The most sensible thing to do is fly to the nearest international airport t...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

I may have asked this many times already, but is there any news on the Cebu Pacific ATR 72s that were supposedly converted to freighters? Here's a relevant article from CAPA several months ago: https://centreforaviation.com/analysis/reports/turboprop-freighter-aircraft-cebu-pacific-becomes-first-car...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

Lets say, PNR accelerates expansion and starts operation between Clark City and Tutuban station. It would still take atleast 2 hours to reach NAIA from Tutuban during the peak hours. Yup, sadly. The only way to solve this is some kind of railway branch line connecting Tutuban to NAIA, which unfortu...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

NO NEED TO IMPROVE NAIA,with billions of dollars.a waste of money! Well, if you could offer a good, practical and timely solution to the country's airport and airspace congestion problems then have at it. My suggestion would be to lay a high speed rail connection b/w MNL and CRK. Then transfer all ...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

Any information on the two Cebu Pac/Cebgo ATR 72-500s that were supposed to be converted for freight use to be delivered by this quarter? I haven't heard much from them except for a couple of articles that briefly mention Cebu Pacific's ATR freighter conversion program. Has it been quietly cancelled?
