The Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) will be a premier gateway of the Philippines in the next 10 years.It is one of the biggest aviation complexs in Asia with its two 3.2 kilometer parallel runways that will be extended to 4 kilometers to accomodate new geration wide-bodied aircraft. An Executive Order by the National Government has designated it as the Philippines future premier gateway site. It is also designed as a logistic hub where the Airport Complex will be key to prompt delivery of goods and services to major destinations in the Asia-Pacific region and the whole world. DMIA is certified by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) with ratings of Category I for Precision Approach Runway and Category IX for the Emergency Services. It is well equipped with Instrument Landing System, Navigational Aids, Meteorological Equipment, Complete Airfield Lighting System.

Last 2nd August we went to DMIA to fetch our family friends who arrived from California and Singapore via Tiger Airways. On that day, I got the opportunity to shot some photos of the Airport complex.
