Calbayog Airport Update

With 3 airlines now flying through Calbayog, I thought I would take another trip out to the Sabang Airport, to see what changes have been made. I went out there on February 17th, the day before Cebu Pacific’s first flight.

The first change I noticed was the control tower, which has been rennovated.

Here is how the check in area looked. I was told Cebu Pacific was bringing their banner with them, on their flight the next day. Cebu Pacific will be right next to Zest Air. I guess PAL Express get’s the bigger area, since they fly daily.

Other changes that have been made include new sections of perimiter fence and parking lot improvements. An extension to the runway is also in the works, but waiting for funding.

You can read more about Cebu Pacific’s first flight at the Calbayog City blog article: “Cebu Pacific flies to Calbayog“.

    Seems in your pics of the airport and the post on the new carriers, I see some “Kano’s” in the pictures.

    I am wondering if Calbayog is now getting more traveling to the area?

    John,

    Good question. I know that was the intention of the government’s “Central Philippines Tourism Super Regions program”.

    There are definately more people flying now than before. Even with 4 times as many flights than one year ago, some flights still fill up. The prices have also dropped considerably … as long as you buy a ticket in advance.
