These airports are General Santos International Airport, Calbayog Airport, Sanga-Sanga Airport, Catarman Airport, Siquijor Airport, Romblon Airport and Ozamiz Airport, a published notice from the DOTr showed.

Bid documents were issued Wednesday and the deadline for submission bids  would be between Nov. 8 and Nov. 9. Bids will  be opened on the same day.
