Structure[edit]

Bantayan Airport is a small feeder airport and does not have a paved runway or fuel service. The largest handling capacity is a Dash-7. It has a dirt runway which is approximately 900 m (3,000 ft) long and 43 m (141 ft) wide, as well as a small terminal. The terminal shed was erected in 2003, along with two security fences and the airport gate, as part of an airport improvement program initiated by the CAAP.[2]
