Davao runway to close for 4 hours daily until June 1


The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), through Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) B0950/24, announced the closure of the sole runway of the Davao International Airport from April 8 until June 1.

The closure, according to the NOTAM, will be in effect from 12:00 AM to 4:00 AM every day for almost two months, to give way for repair of the asphalt overlay on the airport’s Runway 05/23.

In response to the closure, Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Sunday announced the retiming of four Manila-Davao and Davao-Manila flights until June.

Based on PAL’s travel advisory, the following flights are rescheduled:

  • PR 2821 MANILA – DAVAO
    • ETD MNL: From 10:15PM to 9:45PM
    • ETA DVO: From 12:05AM to 11:35PM
  • PR2822 DAVAO – MANILA
    • ETD DVO: From 3:20AM to 4:00AM

  • PR2808 DAVAO – MANILA
    • ETD DVO: From 2:10AM to 4:50AM

CAAP earlier closed the 3,000-meter Davao runway on Saturday, April 13, for similar reasons. Additionally, the civil aviation regulator also closed down Tacloban Airport’s runway earlier this month for emergency runway repairs.
