MANILA – Metro Pacific Investment Corp on Wednesday said it was interested in all airport projects that would serve the National Capital Region, including Sangley in Cavite.

All airport rehabilitation projects near the capital "are of interest" since it will help decongest the Ninoy Aquino Intenational Airport, Metro Pacific told the stock exchange. 

"MPIC is part of a consortium that is trying to reach agreement with Government on the rehabilitation and further improvement of NAIA. In this context, all airport projects serving the greater National Capital Region including Sangley Airport are of interest," the statement said.

Metro Pacific is also part of a “super consortium” that submitted an unsolicited proposal to rehabilitate NAIA together with Aboitiz InfraCapital, AC Infrastructure Holdings Corp, Alliance Global Group, Asia's Emerging Dragon Corp, Filinvest Development Corp, and JG Summit Holdings.

President Rodrigo Duterte in June ordered the “immediate” rehabilitation of Sangley airport.
