PH Grows Singapore Seats

16 February 2015

The Philippines and Singapore have increased its seat capacities between Manila and Singapore by 7.1 percent to 18,888 seats per week from the current 17,627 seats per week.

The expanded Air Services Aggreement (ASA) also allows Singaporean carriers to add more destinations in the Philippines to include Iloilo and Bacolod, adding to the current list of Cebu, Davao, and Kalibo.

Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) said the Philippines agreed to increase the limit on the frequencies for fifth freedom rights to Singapore to 10 per week from eight per week.

The fifth freedom right is currently exercised by Singapore based Jetstar Asia through daily services to Osaka from Manila.

CAB also said that both countries have agreed on a third country code sharing, which allows Philippine and Singaporean airlines to share marketing services with third-party countries outside the Philippines and Singapore.

The memorandum of understanding on air services was signed by the Philippines and Singapore last Friday.
