Kalibo International Airport Loses P600M Since Boracay Closure
Kalibo International Airport allegedly loses around P600 million since the closure of the country’s top tourist destination Boracay Island.
Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP)-Aklan manager Efren Nagrama said that the Kalibo Int’l Airport has an average of 31 international flights and 11 domestic flight every day before the Boracay closure.
Nagrama said that the airport has only three to five flight every day since the Boracay Island has been closed to the tourists last April 26, 2018.
CAAP assigned its personnel and staff in different places particularly in Iloilo City and Roxas City, according to Nagrama.
The official also said that CAAP was only waiting for the order of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to renovate and expand the Kalibo International Airport during the restoration of Boracay.
Boracay Island has been closed to the tourists to allow the government to rehabilitate and restore the top tourists spot for six months.
