Tsugi na! MIAA wants MIASCOR out of NAIA after Duterte’s order

0 203

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has opted not to renew its contract with aviation services provider MIASCOR in the wake of the pilferage of two overseas Filipino workers’ luggage with contents worth P80,000.

In a letter addressed to MIASCOR president Fidel Herman Reyes, MIAA General Manager Eddie Monreal said the lease and concession agreement with the company will no longer be renewed following its expiration on March 31, 2017.

Monreal asked MIASCOR to vacate and return all premises occupied by the company inside NAIA complex and its terminals within 60 days from Friday (January 19).

The non-renewal of MIASCOR’s contract follows President Rodrigo Duterte’s order for airport officials to get a new aviation services provider.

Duterte blew his top after learning that MIASCOR employees were responsible for the theft of the luggage of two OFWs at the Clark International Airport.

“I would demand that there will be justice instantly. Kung sino ‘yung provider, service provider diyan, you terminate the contract and look for another one. And so for the other airports in the country, I do not want it repeated ever again,” he said in a meeting with Clark airport officials in Malacañang Thursday (January 18).

MIASCOR had contract with NAIA, and airports at Clark, Cebu, Davao and Kalibo.
