Bidding reopens for Bohol Panglao International Airport’s (BPIA) operation and maintenance (O&M)
Renewed efforts to privatize the facility’s operation and maintenance stemmed from President BBM’s
directive to sustain public-private partnerships.

According to DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista, they will review the bidding for the expansion,
operation and maintenance of regional airports including the BPIA, Iloilo International Airport,
Davao International Airport and Kalibo airport. Prior plans for a private takeover of BPIA’s operation
and maintenance were postponed during the Duterte administration due to the pandemic in 2020.
