It is the fastest growing airport in the Philippines in terms of passenger traffic with more than 50% growth in 2010, and 2nd fastest for seats offered for June 2014 over the corresponding month of the previous year (20%).[2] The airport is classified as an international airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation responsible for the operations of all airports in the Philippines except major international airports.

The airport is situated 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) east of the main area of Kalibo and 68 kilometers (42 mi) from Caticlan port in Malay.

Expansion and development

On March 31, 2008, construction of the airport's new terminal building commenced. The said construction is part of the ?130-million fund pledged by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in 2007 for the upgrade of the airport which is being geared to become an international landmark for tourism. The package includes 80 million pesos for the new terminal, while ?50 million was released in 2009 by the Department of Budget and Management for the installation of an Instrument Landing System (ILS).[3]

The Kalibo International Airport has one of the busiest international flight activity in the Western Visayas. Regular and chartered flights accommodate thousands of travelers during the holidays from Asian routes to the capital town of Kalibo.[4]

A 200-meter (660 ft) extension of the runway was due to open by the end of 2017, which would extend the current 2,187-meter (7,175 ft) runway to 2,387 meters (7,831 ft).[5] The construction of the new terminal building is to start as soon as possible. There is also to be widening and extension of the apron and expansion of the tarmac, plus additional aircraft parking, airport lights and vehicular parking.

A ?17.9-million expansion and rehabilitation project for KIA terminal building was held in July 2018 as part of the Build, Build, Build program of the government has been pushing for the development and expansion of existing infrastructures such as airports.[6] The newly-rehabilitated terminal building was finished and inaugurated on June 4, 2021.[7]
