Aklan (CNN Philippines, May 28) — Two airline companies have been given a green light to conduct flights from Incheon, South Korea to Kalibo International Airport (KIA) in Aklan beginning next month.

T’way Airlines is scheduled to arrive at KIA on June 17 while Air Seoul Airlines is set to have its first flight bound for Kalibo on June 22.

In an interview on Thursday, Eusebio Monserate Jr., manager of Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), said they are projecting 200 Korean tourists per flight from the two airline companies.

"We are very much prepared, with our newly renovated terminal, and expanded runway, we assure you that we can cater these flights respectively," Monserate said.

KIA caters seven flights daily for domestic tourists and Aklanon residents but the operation is until 10 p.m. only.

In addition to Boracay, Monserate said they may also visit some of the tourist spots in Aklan mainland.
