Drilon explains absence in airport inauguration

Senator Franklin Drilon yesterday admitted that he intentionally did not attend the inauguration rites for the new Iloilo Airport last June 13 which had Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as guest.

"To be candid about it I don't want to put some people in an uncomfortable situation with my presence," Drilon said in a press conference at the Conference Room of the new Iloilo Airport in Cabatuan, Iloilo.

Drilon arrived from Manila around 10 a.m. yesterday on board a Cebu Pacific plane. It was the senator's first time to set foot on the new airport since it started operation, although he had conducted series of inspections on the facility before it officially opened on June 14.

    Is there an official website for this new airport? It would be helpful to have a website that would provide passengers info (just like major international airports worldwide) instead of just news coverage of how wonderful this airport is supposed to be or just photo ops for politicians.

    Now that the airport is open to the public nobody cares to update what's going on. I check the site everyday to find out the same old news.

    gariochAs a British resident, I am interested as to when Iloilo will commence international flights.

    At present I have a 6 hour wait at Manila after flying from Amsterdam. I expect this to improve and have a schedule like they have with Cebu. However, a stopover in Singapore is far better
