Ilo-ilo May 2009

Approaching Panay Island. From here, we'll gonna see a wonderful landscape that covers the Island of Panay.

The New Ilo-ilo International Airport. It replaces Mandurriao Airport in Iloilo City proper which had been in service for over 70 years.
The airport is located about 19 kilometers northwest of Iloilo City on a 188-hectare site in Barangay Duyan-Duyan, split between the municipalities of Cabatuan, where the airport proper is located, and Santa Barbara, where the airport entrance and access road are located. It was about 45minutes drive to city of Iloilo.
Construction work on the new airport started on April 14, 2004. The project with a final cost of around 8.8 billion pesos was formally opened on June 13 with the arrival of the presidential aircraft at the new airport at around 9:50 am PST, with Governor Tupas leading provincial and city officials in welcoming President Arroyo to the new facility.

Airport access road. A newly developed access road was one of the new great sites in province of Iloilo. A long, well decorated by various plants, lighted in the night by street lighting post, and a green scenery makes your travel very entertaining and relaxing.
