Cordillera - Tourists who want to visit Baguio by plane do not wait any longer, as the city is working hard to open the Loakan airport for domestic flights.

The time has come for the local government to move forward with the plan of developing and reopening the Loakan Airport. 

This would allow easier way for tourist to get to the summer capital of the Philippines.

In fact, none other than Mayor Benjamin Magalong stated that Philippine flag carrier PAL Express has already bought five aircraft that could fly to and from Loakan Airport. 

The mayor also added that even Cebu Pacific had also informed him of their plan to open domestic flights to Loakan.
The Loakan Airport is classified as class 2 principal airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) and has been closed to commercial flights since 2009. 

The airport only serves chartered and military flights as of this moment.

The funds will be used to renovate and upgrade the airport into "an all weather commercial airport".

With the plan to open the airport for domestic flights, there are significant benefits for both business in the region and to increase the number of tourist arrivals in the Cordillera.
