Traffic into and out of Puerto Princesa Airport has increased so dramatically that public representatives in the island province of Palawan in the Philippines are calling for an urgent upgrade of the facility. Tourist arrivals have tripled due to the promotion of the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) in the New7Wonders of Nature campaign, according to an article in the Manila Bulletin.

Puerto Princesa International Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Puerto Princesa) serves Puerto Princesa City. It is classified as an international airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines. The cost of the proposed expansion and upgrade project of the terminal is estimated at US$97.78 writes the Manila Bulletin:

“This will involve the construction of new landside facilities in the north western side of the existing runway such as passenger terminal building, control tower, administration & operation building, cargo terminal building, rescue & fire fighting building and other support facilities, the construction of new apron and connecting taxiways, upgrading of the existing 2.6-kilometer runway and its strip, and the provision of new navigational and traffic control equipment.”
