Subic airport opens new aviation facility
SUBIC BAY FREEPORT–The Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) opened a facility for aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services here, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) said on Thursday (Aug 29).
The project was funded by business aviation services provider Aviation Concepts Technical Services Inc. (ACTSI), according to SBMA Chair and Administrator Wilma Eisma.
In a statement, Eisma said the new airport facility is expected to boost SBMA’s plan to make the Subic airport a 24/7 hub for business aviation.
“We have long dreamed of developing the SBIA into a business and general aviation airport in the country, and this project is one huge step towards realizing that vision,” Eisma said.
ACTSI is the maintenance arm of Falconer Aircraft Management, Inc., an affiliated company of global port management firm International Container Terminal Serives, Inc.
The firm has upgraded about 18,000 square meters of hangar space at the SBIA. Joanna Rose Aglibot/TSB
