Some inquiries – some ideas

  • Why just can’t the Philippines include things like the terminal price in ALL tickets? In Manila it is completed, in Cebu it is midway carried out, but all other airports nonetheless engage in with these foolish tiny papers.
  • Who is responsible? 1. The accused workers (Thou shalt not steal!) but 2. the lousy management and controlling.  After a lot more than 6 months they learned that dollars is lacking.
  • They say that KIA (Kalibo Intercontinental Airport) is the Philippines’ fourth busiest worldwide airport with 2,000 global passengers daily. Wherever do go the day by day PHP 1.5 Million? Definitely not into furniture!
  • Wanting at the photo previously mentioned, we suggest that the Indians from Cebu (GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation) take around KIA and clean up as the did with fantastic success in Cebu-Mactan.
