DOTr and CAAP invite comparative bids for the expansion of Laguindingan Airport

The Department of Transportation invites local and international companies to submit challenging bids for the upgrade, expansion, operations, and maintenance of the Laguindingan International Airport.

Under the Public-Private Partnership, the DOTr and Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines have received an unsolicited proposal for the privatization of the said airport, which was later evaluated and approved by the National Economic and Development Authority.

Hence, following the procurement rules and procedures applicable to unsolicited proposals under the PPP Code, the Comparative Challenge Process must be conducted.

The DOTr launched the Swiss challenge for Laguindingan Airport yesterday, February 22.

Laguindingan International Airport is among the airports lined up for privatization and is part of the government’s Infrastructure Flagship Project aimed at defining the development of international flights, implementing commercial services, and expanding the airport’s capacity to enhance passenger experience.

This will serve the Northern Mindanao Region, composed of five provinces: Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Lanao del Norte, Bukidnon, and Camiguin, along with two highly urbanized cities, Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.

Just this month, the DOTr and CAAP led the groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of the airport’s Passenger Terminal Building, which will increase capacity from the current 500 to 860 passengers, representing a 72 percent increase.
