Fly to General Santos
General Santos, the southernmost city in the Philippines, was known as Dadiangás. The city embraces modern technology with state-of-the-art communication facilities that are at par with global standards. It is the gateway to most of the regions in Mindanao via air, land, and sea.
Surrounded by rich seas, General Santos is where some of the best tunas are found, along with other marine products that are always fresh. It has earned the nickname Tuna Capital of the Philippines and celebrates the Tuna Festival every year on the last week of August. It is said that after tuna spawns in its waters, the young grows bigger and swims around the entire Philippines and comes back to General Santos fully-grown. While fishing is one of its major industries, its agro industry is also thriving, and the city is fast becoming a big supplier of cut flowers, vegetables and exotic fruits and grains.
Airport and Airlines
The city is served by the General Santos International (Tambler) Airport. This is the largest airport in the entire island of Mindanao and capable of handling the wide-bodied Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A340.
