Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas requested that the expansion of the Iloilo Airport be added to the national government’s list of priority projects.

In a letter to the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Investment Programming Group, Treñas said the airport is already at capacity, and that expanding it would not only accommodate the growing number of passengers, but would also create more job opportunities and support the city’s economic growth.

“We need to continue pushing for the development of our international airport because it is now overcrowded,” the chairman of the Regional Development Council Committee on Infrastructure said. (

“If it is expanded we can accommodate more flights and visitors,” he pointed out.
