Aviation Updates Philippines - Local airlines led by national flag carrier Philippine Airlines Inc. are seeking additional seat entitlements to Singapore.

PAL is seeking 2,186 seats per week for flights between Manila and Singapore and vice versa while its unit PAL Express is applying for 1,638 seats per week.

Cebu Pacific is applying for 3,459 seats per week using A330 with a capacity of 436 seats while newly acquired Tigerair Philippines is seeking 1,260 seats per week with a capacity of 180 seats.

AirAsia Zest is applying for 2,520 seats per week while parent firm AirAsia is seeking 1,260 seats per week.

Early this month, the Philippines successfully concluded its second air talks after reaching an agreement with Singapore to increase the number of seats and at the same time expand the freedom traffic rights between the two trading partners.

The Philippines and Singapore signed the memorandum of understanding on air services increasing the number of seats to about 16,800 on the Manila-Singapore route from the current 13,800 seats per week for each country.
