The RDC Secretariat said expanding the terminal is listed as a key infrastructure  in the Albay-MasbateSorsogon tourism development plan.

Moving the airport outside the city followed the International Civil Aviation Organization Standards and Recommended Practices.

The relocation will cost P4.474 billion along with a feasibility study worth P10 million.

The plan also involves development of the abandoned airport site.
