GMA News Online reports that in his July 23 State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Benigno Aquino III promised that the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 will be fixed before his SONA in 2013.
The report quoted Aquino, who said, "Pang-apat na pangulo na po akong sasalo sa problema ng NAIA 3. Hindi lang po eroplano ang nag-take-off at nag-landing dito: maging mga problema’t anomalya, lumapag din. Nagbitiw na po ng salita si Secretary Mar Roxas: bago tayo magkita sa susunod na SONA, maisasaayos na ang mga structural defects na minana natin sa NAIA 3 (I am the fourth president to deal with the problems of NAIA Terminal 3. Airplanes are not all that take off and land here; so did problems and anomalies. Secretary Mar Roxas has already said: Before we convene at the next SONA, the structural defects we inherited in NAIA 3 will have been fully repaired)."
The report went on to note that Aquino "also promised to build the new Bohol Airport in Panglao, New Legaspi Airport in Daraga, and the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental before the end of his term."
