MANILA -- Philippine engineering group Megawide Construction and an Indian partner would spend $3 billion to more than double capacity at a Metro Manila international airport under a proposal presented to the government Thursday, intensifying the competition in the capital area's infrastructure.

The plan, submitted with Mumbai-based GMR Infrastructure, calls for upgrading terminals at Ninoy Aquino International Airport as well as extending runways and creating new taxiways.
