  1. Saudi Arabia new entitlements were awarded to Cebu Pacific (seven flights per week) and Airphil Express (four flights per week).

    The 10 old frequencies which had been previously allocated to Philippine Airlines will remain with the flag carrier.

    Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express in October each asked the regulator for 14 flights per week.

    The latest allocations denied requests of PAL and Zest Airways for seven flights each.

    Cebu Pacific will launch daily flights to Riyadh starting third quarter of next year.

    Airphil Express plans to start beginning November next year.
