Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Daniel Z. Romualdez, Waray-Waray: Luparan han Daniel Z. Romualdez) (IATA: TAC, ICAO: RPVA), also known as DZR Airport or Tacloban Domestic Airport, is an airport serving the general area of Tacloban City, located in the province of Leyte in the Philippines. The airport is classified as a Class 1 principal (major domestic) airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.

The DZR Airport is the 7th busiest airport in the Philippines, outside of Metro Manila (out of the 20 major airports) in terms of passenger volume (with 510,762 passengers), based on the 2007 statistics of the Air Transportation Office. It ranked behind the airports in Mactan, Davao, Iloilo, Bacolod, Cagayan De Oro and Caticlan.

The airport is named after Daniel Z. Romualdez, a former speaker of the Philippine House of Representatives and uncle of former first lady Imelda Marcos, the wife of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. It is one of two airports in the Philippines named after a member of the Marcos family, the other being Imelda R. Marcos Airport in Mati City, named after the first lady herself.

Future development

A new terminal building will be constructed by the Tacloban city government, replacing the current building. The new terminal, costing some 300 to 350 million pesos, will be built via a Build-Operate-Transfer scheme. Some 500 million pesos was allocated for the terminal's construction, with the city government collecting a share of current terminal fees to shoulder its expenses in constructing the new terminal. No timeline has yet been set.
