MANILA - Aboitiz Equity Ventures on Thursday said its subsidiary Aboitiz InfraCapital Inc (AIC) has tapped Ireland-based "daa International" for its regional airport bids.

Ireland's daa International will work with AIC in the future upgrade, expansion, operations and maintenance of the Bohol-Panglao International Airport and the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental, the company said in a statement.

The daa International is the airport operations management subsidiary of Ireland's Dublin Airport Authority, Aboitiz said.

Aboitiz InfraCapital was granted the original proponent status (OPS) for the Panglao and Laguindingan airports in September 2018 and March 2019, respectively. 

“The Philippines represents a new environment with great potential and promise for daa International. It fits perfectly with our model and long term strategy of sharing international and regional airport management and operational expertise,” daa International said.

Daa International operates Ireland's Dublin Airport.
