In January 2021, the newly constructed second PTB was formally turned over to LIPAD. The PTB is envisioned to help spur economic progress and development in Central Luzon, and ease congestion at the country’s main gateway, Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

LIPAD currently oversees the operations and management of the existing terminal, which can accommodate up to 4.2 million passengers annually.

The new PTB, on the other hand, will be able to accommodate up to 8 million passengers annually.

The new terminal building, which will cater to domestic and international passengers, is located 1.5 kilometers from the existing passenger terminal. It has four floor levels, 18 aero bridges and a floor area of 110,000 square meters.

LIPAD chief executive officer Bi Yong Chungunco earlier said they are set to open the second PTB for commercial domestic flights in July this year.
