Sangley Point Airport (or Cavite Airport) is an airport at Sangley Point, Cavite City in the Philippines. Cavite is a province south of Metropolitan Manila, and the airport is currently used for domestic flights.
The airport is set to be developed into an international airport. Its proximity to the National Capital Region area will make it a new international gateway to Manila. This will be the third international airport that serves Manila, alongside NAIA in Manila and the under-construction New Manila Airport in Bulacan.
SPIA will have two runways with the possibility to be expanded to four runways, with capacity for 80 million passengers yearly.
