Bureau of Immigration is prepared for Aklan airports to accept flights from Taiwan
The opening of Kalibo and Caticlan international airports in the province of Aklan for flights to Taiwan this month as scheduled, according to the Bureau of Immigration (BI), which announced this on Monday.
Commissioner Norman Tansingco said in a statement that he has already given the Port Operations Division (POD) instructions to make sure that sufficient staff is deployed to the airports to handle the influx of passengers brought on by the new flights.
He mentioned that Tuesday is the day of Royal Air’s first flight from Caticlan to Taipei.
According to Tansingco, “it will also be the first time BI launches its operations in the new Caticlan airport.”
Tansingco, however, stated that starting on December 29, Tiger Air will begin operating flights between Kalibo and Taipei.
The airline firm initially intends to operate four weekly flights to Taipei.
In the meantime, POD interim head Carlos Capulong disclosed that during the past few days, passenger arrivals have been averaging between 25,000 and 27,000 per day at the various airports.
When the nation reopened its borders to international travelers in March 2021, he said that this number was much below the daily norm of 5,000 passenger arrivals.
Tansingco anticipates a further rise in the number of international passengers in all of the international ports in 2019 despite further easing of travel restrictions.
