Both the local governments of Malay, Aklan and Coron, Palawan have initially agreed to ink a sisterhood agreement between the two towns for tourism purposes.
Councilors and government representatives from Coron, Palawan recently met with their counterparts in Malay, Aklan. They both agreed that tourists from Boracay would love to also visit Coron and vice versa.
Because of this, the two town councils plan to lobby for different airline companies to explore the possibilities of having direct flights from Caticlan Airport, Malay, Aklan to Coron, Palawan and vice versa.
The Malay Council members recalled that some airline companies have direct flights from Caticlan Airport, Malay to Coron, Palawan. But the plane connection has been stopped.
Both the Malay and the Coron councils still continue drafting the details of the text of the sisterhood agreement.
The two towns also vowed to strengthen the tourism industry of both municipalities once the agreement have materialized. (PNA)/MP
