Bicol infrastructure giant Verzontal Infrastructure Corporation (VIC) targets to finish the construction of the Antique Airport Development Project by the third quarter of 2020. The P283-million project aims to connect the region with the capital and its neighboring cities seamlessly in the coming years.

The Antique Airport development project, which was awarded to Verzontal in December 2018, will include the “Green Technology” that showcases louver type window panels, a green roof for better heat, rain absorption, and air quality. The “Green Building” will also have natural plants such as water lily stalks and banana bark, as wall placements for ventilation support.

“Together with the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Antique Airport will be one of the newest “Green Airport” present in the region, following Mactan Airport in Cebu, to bring further connectivity to the Filipino people” VIC Vice Chairman and CEO Bede Gomez exclaimed. “We take pride in anchoring not only innovative infrastructures but sustainable and environmentally focused projects as well.,” he added.

Antique Representative, Congresswoman Loren Legarda, recently requested to fast track the completion of the project and wished to revisit the plan and include the installation of solar panels, a vertical garden, a rain-catching system, and non-corrosive materials for the new terminal.

Considering the revision of plans and land acquisitions, VIC Chairman Dennis Macandog is bullish to complete the construction by August 2020 based on a recent discussion with DOTr Undersecretary Tamayo and Cong. Loren Legarda.

The Antique Airport project includes the rehabilitation of the passenger terminal building, landside and airside facilities, and strip grade correction with the improvement of the drainage system.

Upon completion, the Antique Airport is seen to become one of the region’s main gateways to gaining more tourist and business opportunities connecting rural communities to urban centers. The province sees an increase in capacity of the airport passenger terminal, as it expands to accommodate 86 passenger seats and a consistent three times a week flight schedules.

Apart from the Antique Airport, Verzontal has an on-going project with Justice Calixto O. Zaldivar Memorial Hospital in the region. VIC hopes to reinvigorate the Philippine countryside with functional and efficient social infrastructures by connecting rural communities to urban centers.
