Bukidnon Airport to be opened in 2023

Bukidnon Airport

Bukidnon residents will have to travel to Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental or Francis Bangoy International Airport in Davao City in order to board a plane to their destinations in the country and in abroad, but once the operational, the Bukidnon Airport would cut short the travel time of residents who have to endure long land trips to neighboring regions just to catch a plane.

The airport will have a budget of P1.816-billion pesos which will be located in Barangay Maraymaray, Don Carlos, Bukidnon. Maraymaray used to be the site of an airstrip that was used decades ago.

The Bukidnon Airport project began three years ago, but there were delays due to issues involving informal settlers and ancestral domain claims. But right now, all issues has been resolved and the Runway is expected to be finished in 2022 and the terminal will follow and is expected to be completed in 2023 which will be the target year for the Bukidnon Airport to start its operation and will accommodate aircraft such as the ATR-72 and Q400 fleet of competing airlines.

In preparation for the Bukidnon Airport project, the Regional Project Monitoring Committee of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) in Northern Mindanao said the Department of Public Works and Highways has already constructed 72.83% of two-lane roads to the airport in the towns of Kalilangan, Kadingilan, Kibawe, and Don Carlos.
