Stronger PTB To Rise Up in Ormoc
The Department of Transport (DOTr) has allocated 85 million for the re-design, retrofit, repair and completion of new Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) that was damaged by typhoon Yolanda in 2013. 

The completion project  is set to restart next year after completing re-design and re-engineering works to the new terminal which is expected to open to the public in 2018. 

Meanwhile, the airport will also see construction of new control tower and navigational support facilities valued at 151.5 million and another 20.1 million to procure maintenance and service equipment.

According to the Transportation department, Ormoc airport already refurbished its small passenger terminal building that was badly damaged by the typhoon, as well as procured new safety and security equipment
after an airline manifest intent to use the airport in 2015

However, DOTr said the completion of the new terminal is being undertaken to enable the airport to meet international standards and accommodate more passengers from larger airbus aircraft that will soon be fielded by airline companies.

The airport went back to business when Cebu Pacific launched flight to the airport in November 19 with ATR 72-500 aircraft from Cebu.
