Philippines, Macau ink air pact

The Philippines and Macau yesterday inked a new air services agreement to increase flight entitlements for both countries as part of the government’s efforts to lure more tourists and investors in the country.

Under the pact, both countries agreed to increase the current seat entitlements between Manila and Macao to 4,500 per week from 3,500 per week.

The agreement also calls for unlimited seats between Macao and all international airports in the Philippines except Manila in accordance with EO 29.

This is the third air agreement signed by the Philippines after Brazil last month and Australia in April. - WealthSec
