Cagayan de Oro: Laguindingan Airport Terminal Fee, How to Get There, Taxi, Bus Fare
The new Laguindingan Airport is not in Cagayan de Oro City unlike the old Lumbia Airport which it replaced. In fact, it's west of CDO where you need to budget at least an hour travel time to/from the airport.
Here's a guide how to get to Laguindingan Airport from Cagayan de Oro and vice versa.
Map of Laguindingan Airport (via OpenStreetMap) showing the neighboring town of Alubijid. Going right (east-bound) is Cagayan de Oro, while to the left (west-bound) is Iligan City.
From Laguindingan Airport to Cagayan de Oro:
From the airport arrival gate, public transporation is avilable by taking a PUV to the highway of Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental (PhP20.00 fare) On the highway, wait for buses plying the route Cagayan de Oro to Iligan City (24 hour bus service). The buses are available at Cagayan de Oro West-bound Terminal
There are available shuttle service vans from Laguindingan Aiport to Cagayan de Oro with fare PhP249.00/person
going to Centrio Mall on Corrales Street via Laguindingan Airport Express or via Magnum Express to/from Bulua Terminal. There are also vans inside CDO city proper going to the new airport particularly in the Divisoria and SM City Cagayan de Oro area.
Laguindingan airport taxi: seems many taxi drivers are beginning to behave like their "beastly brothers" in Manila. They will charge
you about PhP1,500.00 one way instead of using the meter.
Laguindingan Aiport terminal Fee:
PhP200.00 for domestic flights; PhP700.00 for international flights
