Philippines is all set to enhance its airports to boost up tourism

Published on : Tuesday, May 7, 2019

The Philippines should develop its airports and turn them at par with international standards to further boost up its tourism.

 

This was emphasized by the well-known personalities in the tourism in the recent Tourism Summit held in Pasay City.

 

“I think, we really need to have a good airport infrastructure system that will be comparable with the facilities of other countries like Singapore or Thailand and with those easy connections, we should be able to attract more tourists,” said Jaime Bautista, president and chief operating officer (COO) of the Philippine Airlines.“We really need to have a competitive airport infrastructure… We should really fast-track the construction and modernization of the Manila International Airport,” he added.

 

Also, the government should aim in developing regional airports, said Jaime Zobel de Ayala, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Ayala Corporation.

 

“I think if we could upgrade the whole airport system throughout the country, not just the international airport in Manila, which is of course is important, but all of the other regional ones, and make them internationally standard,” he said.

 

Faster immigration lines and well-organized boarding inspection in airports can equally draw more tourists, said Arin Jira, chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Business Advisory Council of Thailand.

 

“When the lines are so light, they’ll love it, they’ll come back; if it’s too long, it discourages them,” he emphasized.

 

Also, effective communication skills were a significant element in the tourism industry, particularly the English language, said Jira.

 

“I really commend the Filipino people for language skill because you speak English, you can communicate with the world,” he said.
