Panan-awan Airport (Filipino: Paliparan ng Panan-awan, Cebuano: Tugpahanan sa Panan-awan, Waray-Waray: Luparan han Panan-awan) (IATA: MSN, ICAO: RPSM), also known as Maasin Airport, is an airport serving the general area of Maasin City, located in the province of Southern Leyte in the Philippines. It is the only existing airport in Southern Leyte. The airport is classified as a feeder airport by the Air Transportation Office, 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 airport derives its name from its location, being located in Barangay Panan-awan in Maasin City.

At present, however, the airport does not service any commercial flight. It has no terminal and can only accommodate aircraft for general aviation weighing 12,000 pounds and below at daytime. Likewise, dilapidated infrastructure hampers the possibility of commercial flights landing at the airport.

Expansion and Renovation

In 2009 it was announced that The Department of Transportation and Communications had allocated PHP40 million for he expansion of the runway. A further PHP50 million has being requested for he terminal building of which PHP10 million has been released.

The apron has already been created for the parking two Fokker aircraft. The next stage will be to flatten a hill on the approach to the runway. SEAIR has shown an interest in starting to run commercial flights from the airport to Manila Airport in the near future.
