All 40 airports nationwide under the management of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines are all ready to accommodate the surge of passengers in the coming holiday season.
Starting December 10 until January 5, 2019 with the increase of passenger influx, additional security personnel will be deployed and heightened alert in all the airports will be implemented.
CAAP is also conducting close coordination with the airlines to ensure smooth operations, especially at the check-in counters.
Records show that there has been a steady increase in the volume of airport passengers every Christmas season.
In 2017, more than 6.3 million international and domestic passengers were accommodated in airports. More than 3.7 million passengers used the airports in December 2017.
