PAL suspended flights into Baguio in 1998 as part of a company downsizing.

  • On the morning of June 27, 1987, Philippine Airlines Flight 206 a Hawker Siddeley HS 748, bound for Baguio, crashed in the slopes of Mt. Ugo while attempting to land in a monsoon, killing all 50 people onboard. Then a Philippine Air Force Bell UH-1 Huey was lost during recovery operations of that crash.

  • On April 7, 2009, a Bell 412 presidential helicopter owned by the Philippine Air Force carrying 8 key aides of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo crashed in the slopes of Mount Pulag in Tinoc, Ifugao while en route to Lagawe, the provincial capital of Ifugao. But they tried to return to Loakan Airport due to bad weather. All onboard the ill-fated chopper died and Malacañang mourned for their deaths. At the time of the crash, the key aides checked the area for the visit of President Arroyo because she will inspect her mountain road project. Because of the disaster, she cancelled her trip. The U.S. officials dispatched CH-46 Sea Knights to find the downed chopper.
