Since the advent of the Duterte Administration in 2016, your Department of Transportation (DOTr), under the leadership of Secretary Arthur P. Tugade, has been relentlessly working overtime to pursue its mandate in its Aviation and Airports sector: ADVANCE AIR CONNECTIVITY AND MOBILITY IN THE COUNTRY, AND WITH THE WORLD.
Since July 2016, the DOTr and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) have collaborated non-stop in building new gateways and rehabilitating the existing ones to make them more modern and attuned with the times, under the auspices of the massive "BUILD, BUILD, BUILD" infrastructure program.
To date, the DOTr, in partnership with CAAP, headed by Director General Jim Sydiongco, HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED 121 AIRPORT PROJECTS, while 114 are well-underway, and 75 more are set to begin work soonest.
In a time when a pandemic hampered our path to economic progress, we at the DOTr remain more determined and committed than ever to WORK, WORK, WORK for the Filipino people!
