Bantayan Airport is an airport serving Bantayan Island in the province of in the Philippines. The airport is located in the municipality of Santa Fe, approximately 7.2 km (4.5 mi) from the centre of Bantayan municipality. It is classified as a Community airport by the (CAAP), the agency that runs all airports in the Philippines except major international airports. The current airport manager is Joselito Seville.

Structure

Bantayan Airport is a small feeder airport and does not have a paved runway or fuel service. The largest handling capacity is a Dash‑7. It has a dirt runway which is approximately 900 m (2,950 ft) long and 43 m (140 ft) wide, as well as a small terminal. The terminal shed was erected in 2003, along with two security fences and the airport gate, as part of an airport improvement program initiated by the CAAP.[2]

Future

As of June 2013 there is doubt about the future of the airport. CAAP wishes to cease funding it.[3] However President Aquino, who flew into Bantayan airport for his first island visit in February 2014,[4] is interested in the development of the airport.[5]

Meanwhile, a private entrepreneur tried to appropriate it.[6]

In February 2015 it was reported that initial work was under way on the construction project to build new airports at Bantayan and Camotes.[7][8] The initial project phase is to determine a suitable location for the new airport, implying that it may be at an entirely different location on the island.
