The Department of Transportation said it completed the improvement of Camiguin Airport in Northern Mindanao to boost tourism and trade in the island province.
Secretary Arthur Tugade said as Camiguin reopens its economy and welcomes tourists starting Oct. 25, the completed transport facilities and infrastructure projects would augment the recovery not only of the province but also the whole region.
He said with Camiguin island being part of a bigger archipelago, there is a need to meet the demands in maritime and road transportation. He said developments are not exclusive for big provinces but also for small areas like Camiguin.
The completed projects include the fire station building, passenger terminal building, administration building, CAAP Security and Intelligence Service building and runway asphalt overlay.
Future projects such as the expansion and improvement of check-in and pre-departure area, the provision of a control tower and the improvement of the vehicular parking area will also be undertaken for the airport.
