DOTr Extends Ipil Runway

Phase 2 is Rolling
3 January 2017
Transport Department (DOTr) is alloting 50 million for the completion of the second phase of runway concreting project of Ipil community airport in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay extending the usable length of the runway to 1.2 kilometer. 

The first phase of the project (see image) was started in 2009 under the stewardship of President Gloria Arroyo with a cost of 45 million. 

The third phase of the project will involve runway extension, construction of Passenger Terminal Building, control tower and navigational facilities installation. 

There was delay in airport construction because no airline company manifest willingness to launch flight there considering its close proximity to Zamboanga International Airport and Pagadian airports. 

Once completed in 2019, Ipil airport can service or accommodate general aviation and small cargo planes as well as Q400'sand ATR72's of major airlines for routes to Cebu and Manila.
