Direct flights from Korea
a ‘tourism breakthrough’


Local officials Saturday called the arrival of direct flights from Korea to Negros Occidental until March a major breakthrough in tourism, which they hope will pave the way for more international flights landing at the Bacolod-Silay Airport soon.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. hosted a dinner on Saturday night at the provincial Capitol for airline and Korean travel officials who arrived on board the maiden ZestAir direct flight from Korea to Bacolod Saturday with 120 tourists on board, most of whom came to play golf.

It was piloted by Sunny Chan, a St. John’s Institute Class ’91 graduate.moremoremore
