The passenger terminal building (PTB) of the Port of Cagayan de Oro is ready for inauguration on July 15, the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) said Wednesday.
The new facility at the Port of Cagayan de Oro is the biggest port passenger terminal building in the country with a capacity of 3,000 passengers daily.
“The construction of this brand-new building will greatly strengthen the region as the global gateway to Mindanao. Once we inaugurate this on July 15, we are opening Cagayan De Oro to the nation and to the rest of the world as we pursue progress for our seaports,” PPA said in a statement.
The new Cagayan de Oro Port PTB will have a 1,176-passenger seating capacity on its ground facility and a 1,221-passenger seating capacity on its second floor inside a two-story building with a total floor area of 5,597 square meters.
