The project includes the expansion of the airport’s terminal building arrival and pre-departure area and the improvement of basic facilities. There will be an upgrade on the water supply facilities, navigational aids, and other various support facilities, including its power plant.

The improvement is most likely to be noticeable from the new look of the airport. Taking inspiration from its famous Tuna products, the updated exterior design of the said airport is like that of a Tuna fin- the city’s famous sashimi-grade tuna product. Truly, this is something that represents the City!

Even amidst the pandemic, many locals leaped their investments in real estate as the government commits to push through its infrastructure projects despite the continuing pandemic.


Investing in real estate makes a wise choice. It is an investment that will surely grow over time as the value of the property grows too. For instance, real estate makes a self-sustaining income when used for rental business. Paying the property’s monthly amortization can be covered by its monthly earnings from the rental.
