Officials from the Worldtrex Corporation, who organized the bazaar, also attended the activity.
Librodo said that this is not the first time that the airport has opened a bazaar inside the facility.
“So like we want this to make it a regular, an annual thing already no. So it’s like we want it to be a tradition here in the airport and we want the airport to like, you know, festive, because it’s the Christmas season,” Librodo said.
