There will be direct flights from the Incheon International Airport in Seoul, Korea to the Bacolod-Silay Airport in Silay City and vice versa in January and February next year, Silay Mayor Jose Montelibano said yesterday.
Montelibano said he hopes the flights from Korea that will be a boost to tourism in the province will also lead to the opening of direct flights from China and the rest of Asia to Negros Occidental.
Timothy Jones Cabrero, station manager of Bacolod Zest Air, said there will be additional flights of Zest Air Philippines effective January 3, 2012 until February 22, 2012, including the international flight from Bacolod to Incheon, and vice versa.
A chartered flight from Korea will arrive at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Bacolod-Silay Airport and depart for Korea at 12:30 a.m., on Thursdays, while another will arrive at 11:30 p.m. on Saturdays and depart at 12:30 a.m. on Sundays, Jun Madamba, Bacolod-Silay Airport manager, said.*CPG
