Mendoza also said that adding an airport in Pangasinan will make the country as an ideal hub of Cargo in the Asia Pacific region. The Alaminos Airport Development Project was actually announced in 2007 during the State of the Nation Address of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The Philippine Department of Transportation and Communications recently appropriated P150 million under its Infrastructure Program in the General Appropriations Act. With the agreement finally signed, Phase 1 of the P 2.2-billion investment will soon be started, Mendoza said.

“It’s really high time to have a commercial airport in Pangasinan. As mentioned by Mayor Nani (nickname of Braganza) that smaller provinces have more than one airport, Pangasinan, one of the biggest provinces, therefore deserves to have one.”

The Philippine DOTC will also conduct a ground survey to establish the final area covered by the airport. On the part of the city government, it will conduct negotiation with lot owners for the acquisition of lands.
