History

Siargao airport was built in 1964 by the late President Diosdado Macapagal and back in 2008, President Gloria Arroyo initiated a project called Super Regions Program, which aims to improve economic activity through infrastructure project. Back then, the airport could only accommodate 19-seater planes from Cebu. Sayak Airport was renovated and upgraded with the 150 meters runway that enabled the facility to accommodate bigger planes that carries more than 100 passengers.[2]
