They also acknowledged the support of the Provincial Government Unit of Ilocos Norte in ensuring the safety and comfort of the passengers.
The courtesy call is a testament to the strong ties between the Philippines and South Korea and shows the importance of cooperation between different agencies in providing excellent service to the public.
