Aklan Governor Florencio Miraflores is pleased with the improvements at the Kalibo International Airport (KIA).
According to Miraflores, the national government, through the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) ensured KIA’s full development.
The Governor added that DOTC Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya promised to promptly carry out the improvements at the said airport and turn it into a premier gateway of the country.
Because of the continuous flow of tourists and the increasing demand of air traffic cargo, KIA facilities are also targeted to be upgraded.
The Kalibo Airport is also permitted to accommodate more direct and chartered regional flights to be competitive with other airports in Southeast Asia.
As a preparation for international flights, the expansion of the runway is on-going at the moment.
