MANILA, Philippines — The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) said Tuesday that it is developing a “Civil Aviation Masterplan” to improve the country’s aviation efficiency, safety, and sustainability.

To meet its goal, Caap will review the current state of “infrastructure, operations, regulatory framework, national and regional policy, and international standards” of the aviation sector.


After that, the agency will analyze and compare the results with neighboring Southeast Asian countries and the European Union.

“Upon completion of the master plan, it will ensure safe, efficient, and sustainable air transport in the Philippines aligned with international standards while fostering inclusivity, economic growth, and comprehensive development,” Caap said in a statement.

Caap told that the development of the Civil Aviation Masterplan is set to begin in the second quarter of 2024. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) would provide assistance to the project and send two experts to help in the development process.

Caap is under a six-month contract of assistance with EASA, but there is no definite timeline yet for when the master plan will be completed.
