Leyte 4th District Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez expressed her gratitude towards President Rodrigo Roa-Duterte and DOTr Secretary Art Tugade, on Thursday, July 18, via Instagram, for their positive response to her request to rehabilitate the Ormoc City Airport.
”It was the 5th of July and a beautiful day for Ormoc City. The new terminal was ready for turn-over —- brand-new, sparkling clean, Ormoc’s own,” Congresswoman Torres-Gomez said in her post alongside photos during the city’s airport inauguration earlier this month. ”Thank you, Mr. President and our DOTr family, headed by Sec. Art Tugade, for making this possible. What a wonderful way to start a fresh mandate.♥️”
“Inviting commercial airline to operate in Ormoc is always part of the plan. It will energize the economy and people who are from the city and neighboring areas. We don’t have to travel to Tacloban because we have an operational airport in Ormoc,” the lady solon said in her speech during the airport’s inauguration on July 5.
Earlier this week, AirAsia representatives met with Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez and some members of the 15th Sangguniang Panlungsod to express their interest in operating in #theCityOfBeautifulPeople.
Vice Mayor Toto Locsin, previously, revealed that Ormoc-Manila flights might be available by 2020.
