June 12, 2010

Kalibo International Airport will be opening its newly expanded terminal building on June 15.

The P80 million expansion works is set to accommodate 1 million passengers annually. The airport currently handled 646,075 domestic and foreign travelers in 2009 from seven domestic and international airlines.

Aklan Governor Carlito Marquez said airport capacity will be good for the next 10 years based on current DOTC projections.

The new terminal building is set to compliment the original terminal which was refurbished and joined with the new one. Expansion works began two years ago by International Builders Corporation.

Kalibo International Airport serviced 5,203 domestic flights and 360 regional flights from Korea, Taiwan and mainland China says airport manager Engr. Percy Malonesio.

The airport is the 8th largest airport in the Philippines in terms of passenger traffic based on the data compiled by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB).
