Cauayan Airport departure
Here are photos I took of the Cauayan City Airport upon our departure from the city. This is the sequel to the previous post of photos when we arrived there during a trip earlier this month.

Here’s the only concessionaire inside the terminal and practically just beside the check-in counters. Sorry, no last minute shopping for souvenirs or pasalubong here.
Cebu Pacific’s check-in counters
Philippine Airlines’ check-in counters near the terminal entrance security check – obviously, it’s very crowded in this area

Private planes sitting on the tarmac – there are many farms in Isabela that are operated like companies. Many produce rice. And many are owned by corporations whose owners/execs regularly fly in via their own or chartered aircraft.

I will be sharing more aerial photos soon including some snaps of the Magat Dam, which was the major hydro infrastructure in the area.
Cauayan Airport arrival
I have so far never failed to take photos of the airports I have gone through in my travels here or abroad. The following photos are of Cauayan Airport in Cauayan City, Province of Isabela in the Cagayan Valley Region (Region 2) to the north-northeast of Metro Manila.
Taxiing towards the apron and the terminal. One can also see the control tower to the right.
Passengers walk to the terminal with each given an umbrella to shield themselves (partially) from the punishing heat of the sun. Isabela is one of those provinces where the heat indices reach well above 45 degrees C.
A look back to the aircraft and passengers deplaning to head to the terminal.
The baggage claim area had a single conveyor belt
Passengers gathering around the belt to claim their checked-in luggage.
Another view of the conveyor
Luggage start to come out as most passengers are gathered around the conveyor.
A look back at the arrival exit of the Cauayan airport terminal
A quick look and photo of the airport entrance for departing passengers.
There are no taxis in Cauayan so its either you book a van or take the local ‘taxi’ in the form of tricycles. Most of these are motorcycles with sidecars but there are also many new tuktuk types, which are more spacious and comfortable to ride.
Tricycles, motorcycles and private vehicles parked at the airport. That’s the control tower in the background.
More photos of Cauayan Airport as well as aerial shots soon!
