Japanese negotiating
direct flights to Negros


Government officials from the Ibaraki Prefecture met with Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. at the Capitol in Bacolod City yesterday to discuss the opening of direct flights from Japan to Negros Occidental.

The Japanese delegation, led by Ibaraki Prefecture Assembly Vice Chairman, Kikuchi Toshiabe, is in Negros to negotiate for the direct flights from the Ibaraki Airport to the Bacolod Silay Airport and vice versa, the governor said.

“Travel time by plane from Negros Occidental to the Ibaraki Prefecture is about four and a half hours, and we were told that to land there is cheaper than at the Narita Airport,” Marañon said.moremoremore
