Take a look:
The Bohol-Panglao International Airport (BPIA) is inaugurated last November 27, 2018.
Placed in Panglao Island, this airport can accommodate two million passengers yearly. This capacity is more than double the number of Tagbilaran airport's 800,000 flyers annually.
The old airport closed its doors at 6PM on November 27, 2018. All flights and operations have been moved to the Bohol-Panglao International Airport since its inauguration.
Dubbed as the first "eco airport" of the Philippines, BPIA features solar energy that supplies an estimated 30% of the airport's needs and is also integrated to its hot water supply system.
This newly-opened airport highlights a landscape that's surrounded with lush greenery and 11 hectares of grasslands to absorb and reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide coming from BPIA.
624,000 seedlings have also been planted to make up for the trees cut during the airport's construction. For every tree cut, 100 seedlings have been planted to make up for them.
The Bohol-Panglao airport is also equipped with a rainwater catchment pond, a hazardous waste management system, and a sewage treatment plant for waste water to be reused or returned.
A soaking yard, materials recovery facility, and energy-saving AC units are also utilized by the airport.
