Other objectives of the GAD program is to make the top management of the CAAP sensitive to gender issues and to establish gender responsive policies to eliminate gender discrimination.
Eric Apolonio, spokesperson of the CAAP, explained that gender-neutral will be available alongside the male, female, and persons with disabilities (PWD) restrooms.
Gender-neutral restrooms will be initially built in CAAP’s central office in Metro Manila and 11 other CAAP-run airports in the country, said the report.
