Direct flights from Taiwan resume at KIA

KALIBO, Aklan (PIA) -- Direct flights from Taiwan to Kalibo International Airport will resume this December 2022, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP)-Aklan confirmed.

In a media interview, CAAP-Aklan manager Engr. John William Fuerte said that the TigerAir Taiwan of the China Airlines Group will recommence flights to Kalibo starting December 29, 2022.
According to Fuerte, this is the newest addition of international flights at KIA before the year ends, in time for the influx of tourists and guests in Boracay Island for the celebration of New Year and Kalibo Ati-atihan Festival.

The said airline will be using Airbus-320 aircraft that has a carrying capacity of 180 passengers.

With such development, Fuerte said that this will help the tourism industry and economy of the province to grow further.  

Presently, other direct international flights from Korea – the Air Seoul, T'Way Airlines, and JinAir remain their operations at KIA with two flights per day and seen to have more schedules by March next year.

Fuerte also revealed that airline companies from Singapore have expressed interests to have direct flights to Kalibo; which could possibly start their operations at KIA in the first part of 2023.

Aside from this, there is a current negotiation to have direct flights from Malaysia and China. (AAL/SQP/PIA-Aklan)
