Pointing out that as an administrator, if there were changes of date or time of arrivals especially on international flights, he would be informed.
Malonesia further said that KIA had no documents so far which showed that flights were affected specially for tourists going to Boracay.
Even direct flights from Taipei, Taiwan according to Malonesia were not cancelled.
Direct flights from Taiwan and China were almost daily, Malonesia added, and at the meantime arrivals would continue until an advisory was given by the corresponding airline company.
