Calbayog Airport is the main commercial airport serving the area of Calbayog City in the Samar province of the Philippines. Located about 4.35 miles from the city center, it is classified as a minor domestic airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines. In September 2012, a large-scale renovation project was initiated by the Philippines Department of Transportation and Communication to improve and modernize the passenger and aircraft facilities of Calbayog Airport. Today, the refurbished facility boasts sleek interiors and advanced technological equipment, with many of its services now digitized.
Calbayog Airport has one passenger terminal, where Philippines Airlines, Airphil Express, Cebu Pacific, and Zest Airways operate with daily services to and from Manila City. Eagle Trans Asia Airways also runs flights to and from Cebu from this facility. The Arrivals and Departures are all situated on the same level of this single-floor terminal, but are separated into different areas of the complex.
Services and Facilities
The Departure area consists of check-in counters for each of the individual airlines, with a cooled passenger waiting area equipped with TV entertainment and an observatory pane.

What to see and do
The Airport is the national gateway to a beautiful region of waterfalls, black sand beaches, and an endless treasure trove of other natural surprises. Located in the northwest border of the island of Samar, Calbayog is surrounded by the lush rainforests, sparkling waterfalls, and rejuvenating hot springs of Northern Samar.
Its prized attractions include the Bangon-Bugtong and Tabokno Falls, the Danao and Guinogo-an Caves, the Mapaso Hot Spring, and the beaches of Malajog and Bagacay. The Mawacat Slide is another family favorite; it is a massive artificial waterslide that dips and curves at more than 45 degrees and stretches, like a giant spoon, to more than 50 meters in length. The city itself is one of the commercial centers of the Eastern Visayas with a growing economy. Residents of Calbayog speak largely in Tagalog, but most are largely conversant in English as well.
