LAGUINDINGAN, Misamis Oriental (PIA)–To keep up with the increasing demands in the country’s air traffic, and improve the safety, reliability, and convenience of passengers and operators, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP)-10 Area Center has upgraded its facilities and infrastructures.
The manager of Laguindingan Airport, Job B. De Jesus, said there are several development projects going on nearby that will meet the needs of airport users.
In response to growing requests for easier access to restrooms and a wider range of food, especially from northern Mindanao, the airport added public toilets in the parking areas and built food stalls.
In Phase 1, 200 traditional streetlights and 95 traditional floodlights will be replaced with LED lights. In Phase 2, LED lights will be installed along the 4.6-kilometer road that leads to the airport. This will improve the area’s atmosphere and safety.
On both the landside and the airside of the airport, a new structure with an archway for entering and leaving and a guard house will be built. Also, six guard posts that can be moved and four guard posts that are on stilts will be built. The project is set to be completed on April 27, 2023.
The management is making changes to the accounting office in the administrative building to make it a more comfortable and roomy place for employees to work.
By keeping its programs going, CAAP is keeping up with the needs of a country whose air traffic is growing quickly. It has also worked hard to make sure that passengers and airport operators are safe, reliable, and comfortable. (CAAP Area 10/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
