Flight entitlements from Manila to Kuala Lumpur has doubled to 9,640 per week from the existing 4,820, Carmelo Arcilla, executive director of the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) said last week.
The new Air Services Agreement (ASA) also provided unlimited seats per week from the current 2,000 seats weekly between all points in Malaysia and in the Philippines except Manila providing growth corridors for flights in Clark, Cebu, Kalibo, and Davao, Arcilla said.
“The new agreement will allow our airlines to expand on the routes between the Philippines and Malaysia, especially since the market continues to grow and our airlines have been fully utilizing their entitlements,” Arcilla said.
The air pact with Malaysia was last updated in 2011.
