Travel Update: Airport in Kabankalan City is expected to be completed by 2020

Residents in the southern part of Negros Province are now looking forward to the completion of Kabankalan Airport. This will be convenient for those who travel from the south; compared to the travel time to Silay Airport, travel time to Kabankalan is much shorter.

The Kabankalan City Government and the Provincial Government, through incoming Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, will raise funds of about PhP100 to PhP150 million to finish the project.
