Cagayan de Oro Airport
8h

Cagayan de Oro is currently served by Lumbia Airport. It is the third major airport in Mindanao region. Lumbia Airport is located on top of a hill, 183 meters (601 feet) above sea level and is surrounded by mountain ranges. During the rainy season, flights are usually canceled due to fog and poor visibility. The airport does not have a tube or buses to ferry passengers. Boarding priority is given to disabledpassengers. Bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the weather.

Lumbia was originally built as a small provincial airport. With the increase of air traffic and lack of government funding, the airport terminal has become inadequate. Last January 11, 2006, President Macapagal-Arroyo broke ground to start the construction of the new airport in Laguindingan town, approximately 30 kilometers west of Cagayan de Oro. This airport shall serve both cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. Construction is expected to be finished by 2012.

You can enter the country through 3 major International Airports:

  • NINOY AQUINO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (NAIA)

Security. As a major airport in Mindanao, security can be strict especially during holidays (Holy week, Christmas, summer vacation). Passengers are advised to check in earlier. Manual checking of luggage may be required aside from the x-ray machine.

Non-passengers are not allowed within the terminal. Filipinos tend to have a huge send-off entourage (family, friends and even neighboors). This can cause problems within the terminal.

Avoid making unnecessary comments or jokes about terror acts (carrying a bomb or weapon). If a passenger complains, you will be forced out of the plane. No one is exempted from this rule. Several Philippine celebrities have been stopped from boarding their plane due to bomb jokes. This policy applies to international flights.

Fruit or food items that emit strong smells are not allowed in the plane. Place all liquid items such as gels, toothpaste, shampoo, perfume, moisturizers and others in a clear plastic bag (zipper bag) for easy inspection. Check with your airline for other prohibited items. For international flights, check the US Transportation Security Administration website for more information regarding permitted and prohibited items.

To avoid lost or stolen luggage, always place visible name tags (name, address, mobile number and email) and unique markers (ribbons, colored tape, etc...) on your luggage to easily distinguish it from others.  Most importantly know your luggage well.  This will be helpful when asked to describe your luggage and its contents.
