The Department of Transportation (DOTr) today commended Airport Police Officer Joebert Besonia who helped an OFW reach her flight last August 11 at the NAIA Terminal 3.

DOTr Undersecretary for Aviation and Airports Manuel Antonio L. Tamayo expressed the DOTr's utmost gratitude to Besonia for going out of his way to assist Mary Jane Abalos, an OFW from Bahrain.

“The action of Airport Police Officer Besonia is worth being emulated by other airport personnel and civil servants. This only proves that there are still government servants who are dedicated to their sworn duties,” Tamayo said.

Usec. Tamayo also commended Manila International Airports Authority (MIAA) General Manager Ed Monreal for being able to push positive reforms at the NAIA.

"The act of Besonio is a symbol of the kind of training and values that GM Ed Monreal imparted to MIAA staff," he said.

Last 11 August 2017, Abalos landed at the wrong terminal and did not know how to get to NAIA Terminal 3 without missing her flight. Besonia, upon seeing the distressed OFW, hurriedly offered assistance, informing Abalos that there is an airport loop shuttle bus that can bring her to NAIA Terminal 3.

However, Abalos told Besonia that she had no more Philippine peso to pay for the bus fare. Without hesitation, the airport police officer willingly gave PhP20 to pay for her fare.

Besonia, 27, joined the Manila International Airport Authority Police Department (APD) in 8 October 2014 and is a member of APD Batch ’14.
