Laguindingan to become an Airport City by 2025


Based on the Northern Mindanao Disaster Risk Reduction/Climate Change Adaptation-Enhanced Regional Physical Framework Plan, 2013-2040 which was approved by the Regional Development Council in 2013, Laguindingan is planned to become an Airport City (Aerotropolis) by year 2025.

Below is a paragraph in page 215 of the said document, it clearly stated that:

The development of an aerotropolis is seen to improve the global competitiveness of the region. The Laguindingan Airport is proposed to be the center of an airport city that shall be built. It shall compose of a set of commercial facilities to support the growing number of travellers who shall pass through the airport. It is expected to generate investments, thereby creating jobs and economic benefits for the whole region. 

Below is a summary of the target development.


So far, the first target (2015) has been accomplished Read LINK. This year (2016), the runway expansion is yet to be implemented.

      Ask ko lang po… Paano na yung international flights by the end of 2015? Bakit di po na push through? Thanks

    Based on the outlook, a mere expansion or extension of current runway is not sustainable. An additional parallel runway will definitely complement the growing requirements of this aerotropolis. Having that considered is more strategic. For now, there’s still ample space that can accommodate a new runway. Think CAAP should have learned NAIA’s pitfalls – no room to expand and constructed a perpendicular runways at that!

    How are they going to construct extinction if planes are landing build it now at night before night flights start ????

    Pero unta i-address sad nila ang issue sa numerous flight delays, like more than 2 hours delay? Pirmi lang gyud na gakatabo. To expand means to extend its quality of services to greater expectations as well.

    • Epoy Adarna says:

      The flight delay problem is not with the cdo airport its with the manila air traffic congestion. Planes are advice to take off late die to heavy air traffic in naia
