I bought comments on distinctive channels belonging to my today’s article about Cagayan de Oro’s new airport.
And then all of a sudden I had an idea:
Why not swap Laguindingan and Lumbia?
Travellers would be happy, pilots would be grateful and the colonels would open a bottle of champagne.
I am not positive if it experienced been the present president’s mom, Corazon C. Aquino, or her successor Fidel V. Ramos who had the plan to set up the Laguindingan venture. Again in 1992 a lot of items obtained a little bit turbulent in the Philippines.
In any case, one of the two commenced 21 a long time back not only the new Cagayan de Oro airport venture but also the Panglao airport undertaking.
Right now numerous people today affiliate these initiatives with Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. But this is only mainly because GMA mastered private marketing by installing roadside symptoms everywhere you go with her picture wearing a protective employee helmet. GMA did absolutely absolutely nothing in regard of these two airport tasks. But I still like her photo with the helmet.
But let us get again to the current.
Laguindingan is an complete mess! This is not only my feeling, but also the feeling of significant rating airline officers, pilots and travellers. The only grinning men are the taxi motorists.
I thus suggest to swap Laguindingan and Lumbia.
The air-force gets a neat new airport with aircon workplaces, free access to the sea and a ton of house for advancement.
On the other aspect the airlines could recover their well recognised places of work, pilots would have all over again usable navigation aids and passengers would even have far more usable seats in the old airport. But at the very least flights would yet again fly to their spot at nearly any time.
And past but not least the airline supervisors and stakeholders would be pleased. A diverted flight from Manila to Cagayan and then again charges a huge great deal of money, requirements out of the blue a lot more reserve crew and can make passengers indignant and annoyed.
Consequently: Let’s swap Laguindingan and Lumbia
