Statement of the City Government of Davao

THE City Government of Davao continues to receive reports from Dabawenyos and visitors regarding the current condition of the facilities within the Davao International Airport (DIA). This has been a recurring issue.  The local government has constantly raised these concerns to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) XI, which is the agency mandated to manage the Davao International Airport, yet we see no significant improvement until today.

Despite having no direct control over the DIA, the City Government continues to support CAAP XI in various ways for the welfare of the public. The City augments security personnel within the DIA compound to ensure the safety and security of passengers and the public. Recently, the city also turned over additional push carts to the airport to augment their existing inventory for the benefit of all passengers.

While we acknowledge that CAAP is preparing for the transition of airport management to the Davao International Airport Authority (DIAA), it must not fall short in delivering its mandate to maintain our airports.

Hence, we are asking the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines XI to act swiftly and improve the facilities and services in the Davao International Airport for the benefit of every traveling individual visiting the region.
