Solon launches drive for international flights
Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia yesterday launched a campaign among Philippine-based airline companies to consider the Bacolod-Silay Airport as a destination for international flights.
Leonardia said he has informed the Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air, the major airlines using the BSA for local flights now, that the government is now ready to process international flights at the BSA.
“The Customs, Immigration and Quarantine system is ready to be activated at the BSA once international flights begin, and the Bureau of Immigration Commissioner, Siegfred Mison, has officially assured us that his office is ready to deploy immigration officers,” Leonardia told the airlines.
