New Airline to Capiz Seen to Boost Tourism PDF Print E-mail
The maiden flight of the Manila-Roxas City flight of Airphil Express, which replaced the Philippine Airline (PAL) Bus 320 200 on October 28 also solicited positive reactions from government and private groups in the province, Capiz Tour Operators Association (CTOA) said.

Another aircraft flying to the city from Manila on a daily basis is Cebu Pacific.

“This is good news for those from Capiz as we will still have the same type of aircraft with light snacks and a hot cup of coffee but now with lower air fares thus having an extraordinary low cost carrier experience," said CTOA President Donnel San Antonio.

The only significant change is the change of terminals as passengers from Roxas City will now disembark at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 from the previous Terminal 2, San Antonio said.

The new carrier's maiden flight was almost full with 140 passengers aside from the 2,298 kilos of inbound cargo from Manila.

At the Roxas Airport, arriving passengers were greeted by Airphil Express (APX) and Philippine Airlines (PAL) personnel led by PAL Roxas Branch Manager Orty Liscano, PAL Roxas Branch Airport Supervisor Alex Sy, San Antonio who is also Tickets N More Travel Agency General Manager and other PAL and APX airport personnel.

San Antonio noted that initial flight of the new aircraft from the city registered 71 passengers with 678 kilos of outband cargo.

The city and the province can also be reached through sea and land-based transportations. (JCM/AAL-PIA6 Capiz)
