Philippines’ BCDA invites bids to operate and maintain Clark Airport

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) in the Philippines, in collaboration with the Department of Transportation (DOTr), has started the bidding process for the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the Clark International Airport (CIA).

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) in the Philippines, in collaboration with the Department of Transportation (DOTr), has started the bidding process for the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the Clark International Airport (CIA).

An invitation to bid was published on 30 April, after securing approval from the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board for the PHP5.61bn ($108.31m) Clark International Airport expansion project and O&M public-private partnership (PPP) concession.

BCDA noted that a primer/information memorandum comprising the general information about the project will be made available on its website starting 7 May.

“It’s moving full speed ahead and I think we can even gain more momentum as we move towards the next phases of construction.”

BCDA president and CEO Vivencio Dizon said that the contract may be awarded by August this year.

Once the contract is awarded, the O&M Concessionaire will assume the management and operations of the existing passenger terminal, and the new terminal building after its completion and successful commissioning.

Dizon added: “The new terminal is going to open in the first half of 2020. It’s on track. We have no indications of delay. It’s moving full speed ahead and I think we can even gain more momentum as we move towards the next phases of construction.”

The new terminal in Clark Airport is expected to help decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and will accommodate an additional eight million passengers per year.

Formerly known as Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA), CIA is located in the Pampanga province in the Central Luzon region of the Philippines.

The airport is managed and operated by Philippines government-owned enterprise Clark International Airport Corporation.
