Davao-Manado air link reopening

Feb. 10, 2015

A multi-stakeholder group is mulling the opening of the air connectivity between Mindanao and North Sulawesi for the Davao-Manado route.

In a meeting recently convened by the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), key players from tourism, trade, academe, and government line agencies agreed to take more proactive and aggressive steps in re-establishing the connectivity between the two BIMP-EAGA (Brunei Darussalam Indonesia Malaysia the Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area) cities.

The direct flight from Davao to Manado offers a shorter route for travellers and will allow the faster movement of goods and products. Currently, passengers bound for Manado take the circuitous and costly Davao-Manila-Jakarta-Manado route.
