The Kalibo International Airport (KIA) is now planning to have an increase on its terminal fee for both domestic and international flights.
According to KIA manager Percy Malonesio the Public Hearing for the said fee increase is due on May 24 in Kalibo.
The presence of the representatives of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) from Metro Manila and Cebu are expected, as well as business personalities in the province of Aklan, especially those from Boracay.
It has been said that KIA is the last to have this proposition as almost all the airports in the country including the Caticlan/Boracay airport had already had their fees increased in the previous year.
Also Kia decided to have this appeal for an additional support for its daily operation.
In line with this, if the proposition be approved, the 40.00 peso terminal fee for domestic flights would rise to 200.00, while that of the international flight would rise from 500.00 to 700.00.
They have assured however that, if granted after the hearing, the public is said to expect a
proclamation before its implementation.
Malonesio also cleared out that there will be no exemptions even as the passengers would be from the province of Aklan.
