(Wowcordillera) - Bagabag airport in Nueva Viscaya is back and now resumes operation for the first time after 16 years.

In its inauguration ceremony held on May 17, 2017, Wakay Air Service launched its first Clark-Bagabag flight as it landed on the airport for the first time.

The maiden flight of Wakay to Bagabag happened at around 10 A.M on Wednesday and was welcomed by a traditional water gun salute and was followed by a welcome ceremony attended by members of the Department of Tourism (DOT), some members of the Nueva Viscaya local officials and local travel and tour operators.

According to the DOT, the opening of the Bagabag airport is a tremendous boost to the local tourism in the area and nearby provinces especially the majestic rice terraces of Banaue.

The flight to Bagabag can be access through Wakay Air Service 38-seater Donier aircraft that is scheduled to serve passengers four times a week starting on June 4.
