KALIBO, Aklan -- The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has deferred the implementation of the collection of fees for parking at Kalibo International Airport (KIA).

KIA management has earlier set the start of the implementation of parking fees collection on September 20.

 The management is deferring the implementation to a later date to have more time to prepare, said Kalibo airport manager Efren Nagrama on Thursday.

 “CAAP-KIA will issue another notice when it will officially start,” Nagrama said.

 The collection of parking fee at the airport premises was based on CAAP Authority Order No. 140-14 dated June 10, 2014.

 Based on the order, vehicles parking at the airport will be charged PHP20 for the first two hours and PHP10 for the succeeding hours.

 Stickers will be given to government vehicles, airport employee vehicles, airport transport services, and others after they pay in bulk for their one-year parking.

 As one of the busiest airports in the country catering to domestic and international flights, hundreds in the transport sector are expected to be affected by the order.

 Kalibo airport is one of the gateways to Boracay. (PNA)
