MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Monday said that it registered a total of 78,000 passengers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Easter Sunday, BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco said in a statement on Monday.

The total number consisted of 45,000 arrivals and 33,000 departures.


“The high number of arriving and departing passengers shows that the travel sector is already recovering. We see this as a good sign, and we believe the numbers will continue to rise until the end of the year,” Tansingco said.

He also reiterated that BI operations “remained smooth” despite the high volume of passengers.

A total of 155 immigration officers were fielded for the week, together with a batch of 36 immigration officers who were deployed after completing their training.
