TUGUEGARAO CITY – The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has accredited the Cagayan North International Airport, which is now ready “for commercial flights, both domestic and international,” said Raul Lambino, administrator and chief executive office of the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) in a statement on Monday.

The airport in Lallo town has opened a new international gateway to the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport, augmenting traffic brought by the Laoag International Airport on the western side of Luzon, Lambino said.

Quoting analysts, the Ceza chief said a fully-operational Lallo airport will give major Asian entrepreneurs and global investors “easy, convenient access and faster travel time to the Freeport headquartered in Santa Ana, Cagayan.”
