First night flight takes off at Laguindingan Airport

Last October 23, 2014, Laguindingan Airport had its first night take off by a commercial airline. At 5:45 PM, PAL Express’ flight 2526 took off from Laguindingan Airport bound for Manila. The plane was supposed to leave at 4:15 PM.

It was the first airline to go beyond the sunrise to sunset limitation of Laguindingan Airport. Since it opened in June 2013, the airport relied only to visual flight rule (VFR). Now that the precision instruments and runway lights are already installed, it seems that Laguindingan Airport is now ready for night and early morning flights.
