LEGAZPI CITY, — Albay opens its international gateway through this city on January 30th. On this day, about 156 Chinese tourists will visit the Bicol province during the initial direct flight from Xiamen, China.

The Chinese nationals are expected to stay for a five-day tour.

The domestic airport here has been upgraded with concerned government agencies installing the needed facilities to meet the standard.

The Legazpi airport will also be ready with its Customs, Immigration and Quarantine-Health (CIQ) and Quarantine Agriculture to meet the requirements involving international flights.

The groundbreaking Xiamen-Albay charter flight will usher in the coming of about 18,000 tourists in 2014, growing to 50,000 in 2017, according to governor Joey Salceda.

Other than China, the enhanced tourism program of the province also target major markets like Russia and Korea.
