There will be more number of flights between Singapore and Philippines in the coming days as the government has signed a new deal to increase the flights services.
The new deal adds 2,647 seats a week between Manila and Singapore, on top of the previous 11,200 seats per week allowed. Allocations to Clark airport, meanwhile, were doubled to 20,000 seats a week from 10,000 before. Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) Executive Director Carmelo Arcilla said members of the Philippine air panel, along with their Singaporean counterparts, signed the deal that would increase the number of flights between the 2 countries by over 60 percent.
The Philippine air panel has signed similar deals with Qatar and South Korea. The new agreement with Singapore, along with deals made with other countries, is part of the administration’s strategy to increase tourist arrivals to the country to boost economic activity.
