PostHeaderIcon Pre-mature opening of Laguindingan Airport ?

Would it be wise to open the new Laguindingan International Airport to the public on June 15 this year?
I quote “The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) today announced that it has decided to push back the transfer of the gateway to Northern Mindanao from the old Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City to the new P 7.8-billion Laguindingan Airport by one-and-a-half months to June 15, 2013, in order to avoid disrupting passengers’ travel plans over the summer.” – Official Gazette

What about the air navigation equipment which will be fully place not until May 2014? Will it affect the safety of the general public? Today, June 11 is the inauguration of the billion peso international airport and even the president of the Philippines graced the occasion. But would June 15 be the “right” time to open it to the public? Hhhhmmm…

    Its a big lost to the business community. Flight reduction affects the businessman as most businessman take night flight. Cdo has 24 flights daily, if L.A. caters to day flight only meaning 6am to 6pm then we will be missing more or less 10-12 night flights, thats a big economic setback for cdo. I guess politics is behind this.
