The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) is welcoming passengers traveling during Holy Week with Malasakit Kits at various airports across the country.

This initiative began on Maundy Thursday, March 28, and aims to provide travelers with some comfort and convenience during their journeys.

Passengers departing and arriving at San Jose Airport, Dipolog Airport, and Bicol International Airport received Malasakit Kits containing snacks like biscuits and coffee, along with hygiene essentials such as tissues and alcohol.

Additionally, Naga Airport offered passengers personalized pouches and bracelets to commemorate the Lenten season.

In a move to further assist passengers, Laoag International Airport set up a ‘Malasakit’ help desk staffed with nurses who offered blood pressure monitoring and other health services.

CAAP Director General Capt. Manuel Tamayo emphasized the importance of passenger care during this busy travel period, stating, “Let’s provide the best service our travelers deserve to ensure convenient, accessible, safe, sustainable, and affordable transport this Lenten season.”

All 44 airports operated by CAAP are anticipating a continuous influx of passengers returning to their provinces throughout the Holy Week break.

According to CAAP, the Malasakit help desks will remain operational at airports to assist passengers until they return to work after the holidays.
