Cancelled Airport projects include DVOR installations for Pagadian and Dipolog airports, and Navaids for Cauayan and Cotabato which were cut in the National Expenditure Program (NEP) due to budgetary constrains. It would make the affected airports night rated capable of handling night flights.

"They cannot have evening flights for now…. But we will incorporate the project [to night-rate four airports] next year together with the next airports on the lists." Aviation Undersecretary Manuel Antonio Tamayo said.

Night-rated airports allows planes to land in the evening under the visual flight rules and visual weather conditions says Tamayo.

DOTr aims to night-rate 5 airports every year under the aviation program of the government until all 44 commercial airports are night rated.
