Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has ordered the resumption of all direct domestic and international flights to and from the Davao International Airport (DIA).
The local chief executive issued an executive order Wednesday, May 5, after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) DIA sent on May 4, 2021 a letter, underscoring the need to remove all restrictions on flight operations to allow more economic activities in the civil aviation sector.
“The resumption of all kinds of flights, such as scheduled international flights, unscheduled domestic commercial flights (chartered), and other general aviation flights to and from Davao City is hereby allowed,” Duterte said in her EO.
The city government previously prohibited certain flights in Davao City as part of the measure to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease.
All arriving travelers in DIA are required to undergo RT-PCR testing.
